A Blessing for my Baby

My mom only has three grand daughters. Each born in June and each 7 years apart. Weird, right?

I can't believe we did it, but we blessed Winnie on Father's Day. She must be a third child because I never would have dreamed of blessing either of the boys two weeks after they were born! Ben's parents came to visit from Virginia and were only here for a few weeks. We had to convince the bishop we were serious about the date and then it was on! Winnie's beautiful dress was made by her Nana Kay. It is completely hand made and will for sure be a family heirloom. As if the dress wasn't enough, I had to add the over-the-top feather headband to go along with it. Too much? Maybe....but our family only has a girl every seven years, so I thought, why not? Ben did a wonderful job on her blessing and it was fun to be surrounded by family and friends. It was a perfect day and I even managed to sneak in a nap! Can't beat that! I can't believe how much I am enjoying this little baby and how much she has already blessed our lives! We love you baby Winnie!

Welcome Winnie!

Ta da, I'm here!

So sweet!
Proud papa
Every girl loves getting her hair washed!
Apparently she did not agree with my choice in take home outfits!
Ready to go home now!

Introducing the newest member of our family....Miss Winnie! We are so excited she is finally here! She is such a sweet little baby, so petite! She actually came with dark hair! I always secretly wished she would have dark hair, but never expected it to really happen. Chances are it will change to blonde soon, but her dark hair will be well documented! Her brothers both love her to death and always want to check on her to make sure she is okay. I think they will be big helpers for me. She is gorgeous and we are enjoying every minute of having her here!

Congrats to our Little Grad!

Wilson's pirate version of himself. Don't ask what that green stuff coming out of the side of his mouth is!

I can't believe Wilson is done with preschool! It was such an awesome year. His teachers Mrs. Park and Mrs. Cameron were phenomenal and I can't believe how much Wil has grown over the last year. He is so ready for kindergarten. The graduation was really fun to see. They sang tons of their favorite songs and each kid had a cut out of themselves on the wall. Of course Wilson's looked like a pirate! The teachers made each child a little bag made out of Capri Sun packages they collected over the year. How fun is that? Wilson kept asking me how many days he had left of school so I thought he was going to be happy to be done. He didn't even want to hug his teachers or anything, so I was completely surprised when he started crying outside the school because he was going to miss preschool! It was so cute. We are so excited to see what he will accomplish next year in kindergarten. Way to go, Wil!
