Blessing Preview

So this morning I woke up with the terrifying thought that Elizabeth might not fit into her blessing dress. For those non-Mormon people...we do not baptize our infants~that is done when they reach the age of 8, but we do give our babies a special blessing. Travis does this for our family and it is done during church, usually on the first Sunday of the month (which we call Fast Sunday because it is a day set aside for fasting). Also, usually, we bless our babies the first Fast Sunday after they are born. Since Elizabeth was still in the hospital on that day, we thought of doing it the first Sunday of March, but Travis ended up having to work, so we are going to do it on March 29th. (which, I know, isn't the first Sunday of April, but we will be having our church's General Conference the first Sunday, therefore Fast Sunday got bumped up a week)

Anyway, since we are having to delay 4 weeks, I was afraid that the little dress that my parents gave Elizabeth for her blessing (the boys were blessed in their dad's blessing outfit) would be too small. So, to ease my anxiety this morning, I tried it on her. It, of course, fits perfectly and will be plenty big enough to fit her next Sunday. She looked so beautiful I just had to snap some pictures. She was in a very good mood, which she may not be in on Sunday, so I thought it would be a good idea to capture her happy anyway.

So, here are a few pictures I shot of her this morning. Joseph saw the pictures and said, "Elizabeth looks like a beautiful princess!!!" and Spencer said, "Yep, she sure looks sharp!" (o:
Even her little shoes are cute!

This was a little later in the morning. I was getting ready to dress her. She loves to be naked and was just cracking herself up, so of course I had to take a picture of that too.

And, in case you were wondering...yes, I still have three sons and yes, I do pay attention to them. Connor is still getting into plenty of trouble, Spencer is still addicted to SIM City, and Joseph is very busy drawing and playing monster trucks.

So I am a total slacker I have not been on anyone's blog in so long. I didn't even know you had your baby already. Hello I'm a dork. She is so beautiful. Congratulations. March 29th is when Curtis and his wife Janae are blessing their baby boy too. He was born on March 2nd. He is pretty stinkin adorable. All these babies are really giving me the bug. Well congrats again she is sooo soooo beautiful! Love you.
