This past Sunday we had the great opportunity to bless our sweet baby Afton Marie.




If you don’t know what that means in our faith, check out “Naming and blessing” It’s a special opportunity to give a blessing for a child’s spiritual and physical welfare.


Michael was able to perform the blessing, and it was a special day.


IMG_4870What made it extra special was having my family in town, as well as Michael’s parents. I feel so blessed to have such a great support system. I feel like with them cheering us on, we can do anything.

They always tell us how proud of us they are, and just how well we’re doing raising our family. That means the world to me.

I know we’re not perfect, but we’re trying our best every day.

To see them all here with my new infant was so great.



Another thing that made it extra special was spending some quiet time with Afton. Michael took her in his arms Sunday morning and spend some private time with just her. He wanted to feel her spirit and took this opportunity very seriously. He blessed her with a number of special things, including the ability to feel the Spirit and develop a relationship with her Savior.


The last special thing, was this face… She smiles now!!! Sometimes it can be a gassy smile, but I think it’s really a social smile. She is just sooo cute!



We love you special girl.
