{Miles' Baby Blessing}

We were so grateful to be able to do Miles' baby blessing while we were with my family in Pine Valley.  What a treat to be able to bless our sweet baby boy in a historic and completely adorable chapel with so many loved ones attending including Miles' namesake, his great grandfather.  4 generations all around to celebrate.  It really was so sweet and memorable for all of us. 

It was a beautiful day! We had to be at the chapel about an hour early to get seats.  They welcome everyone, but if you aren't early, you'll be in an overflow area or even outside in the shade (watching on a tv monitor).  So, thanks to everyone for getting up extra early so we could all sit together!

Love this smile!

 Trevor did a great job with the blessing.  Our normally fussy baby was calm and quiet as could be.  We were all touched and reminded again what a sweet and precious gift a newborn baby is to the world.  A tiny life full of possibilities. I can especially feel of God's love for His little children during these special moments because I have an overwhelming feeling of love for my own little ones. 

Okay, here comes more pictures (a ton!). I have no filter. Sorry. My brother had to remind me it wasn't a wedding. We go a little picture crazy around here.

What a group!  I almost photoshopped Ry out of this picture, below.  Yep, that's him on the ground in complete resistance of the group photo.  But that is reality of my life with this 2 (almost 3!) year old.  Good grief.  Maybe I'll laugh someday?What am I going to do with this kid?!  Luckily I have that sweet picture (above) of my baby with my baby. 

All the men in the circle.  So grateful and proud of these priesthood holders.  What a blessing they are in my life. And what amazing men my boys can look up to.

And with great-grandma Snow too!

4 generations. 

So lucky he is mine!

All 4 babies again.

Love this little sweet pea in his adorable blessing outfit that is already too small. Sigh.

I'm glad you didn't photoshop him out...I'm sure it's frustrating at the time as his mama, but you're right about it being laughable when you're a bit removed from the situation =o) I'm not a big fan of pics myself...if only I could lay on the ground protesting my next family pic =o) So I found your blog after google image searching "baby blessing boy" & in search of a non-cheesy blessing outfit for my first baby next month. I like your simple outfit for your handsome little guy! Do you mind if I ask where you got it? Thank you! VeNicia

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
