Addison's blessing

Blessing Day

Yesterday was Addison's blessing at church.  It's basically where the new baby is given a name and a special blessing.  It can be quite a beautiful and emotional thing sometimes.  It's also a time to present the baby to everyone and kind of celebrate their entrance into the world in a more reverent kind of way.  So lovely.

Super cute little shoes

(This will be them soon! Only with a little boy!)

Proud grandparents (my parents) with their first granddaughter

Super proud Mama!

Is this girl gorgeous or what!!?

This dress is extra special for 2 reasons: First, the lace overlay was cut from my mom's wedding dress.  How beautiful is that?  Second, Addison's grandma (R-Jay's stepmom, Colleen) made the dress! I was so pleased with it.  She is so talented!  Isn't the dress stunning?

It was a great day.  I was grateful that R-Jay was able to give the blessing.  I was also so happy that so many friends and family were able to come out and see us.  There were several friends that I have not seen for a long time and that I love dearly (Hey Lib, Deb, and Ed!).  It was a wonderful day.
