SO we blessed Rory in church on the 16th of September and Perla was super amazing enough to take pictures for us to remember the day ;)
For those that don't know, in the Mormon church a baby is blessed by their father (or other father type figure) and it's a special prayer just for the baby ;)
Andrew did an amazing job and yes I cried through the whole thing ;) And my lovely daughter tarted talking into the microphone as soon as they walked up to the front, then she started to fuss, so all the men started "the bounce" and she quieted ;)
- Nick, Papa Smith, Grandpa Mills, Dad, Rory, Grandpa Bowler, Great-Grandpa Frank And Nick missed the "look at the baby" cue hahaha
- See my grandpa's face? That is how he looks every time he sees her ;) And she LOVES him right back ;)
- With the great grandparents from Andrew's side - and she was just really tired of all the pictures I promise!
- See how tired the poor thing was?? She snuggled right into me and fell asleep right after this picture was taken ;)
Ok, can I be selfish for a minute and mention my dress? I LOVE THIS DRESS! I got it from eShakti.com and had it custom sized cuz none of the pre-done sizes fit my post-pardum body hahaha AND IT COMES WITH POCKETS! I loved pockets before I was a mom, now they're basically essential to my wardrobe ;)
