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!

Love the feathered head band. Becky and I say the difference between your first and your third is Cheerios to Lucky Charms. It's great that she was able to be blessed on Father's Day. How special for your family.
