a name & a blessing

Little man was blessed by Ben on December 28th!  We did it at my dad's house in Utah and had a small get together with immediate family.  It worked out so well since both of our families live up there.  

The blessing was beautiful; Ben did a great job!

“Every member of the church of Christ having children is to bring them unto the elders before the church, who are to lay their hands upon them in the name of Jesus Christ, and bless them in his name” (D&C 20:70)

B was such a champ and was a happy boy and didn't make a peep during the blessing.

He carries the names of the great men below!  Middle + last names.

Little boy is really into those hands of his.

K mom, no more pictures...

Little man looked so handsome in his three piece suit.

We're still working on the balance thing.  ;)

What a sweetheart.  We love this little boy and are so happy he is ours!

It did blizzard like crazy, so thank you to those who traveled.


  1. take all the pictures now, when he is older he probably won't like to be held by anybody but you. Zoe is in this phase and nobody was allowed to hold her over Christmas, broke my mother in law's heart.

  2. Love everything about this post! He is such a cute baby!!

  3. He's got the most perfectly round face and head- I love it!

  4. These picture are awesome!! Wish we could have been there!

  5. What a darling little guy! I love when our babies are blessed. It is so special!

  6. Oh your little man is so cute and I love his little suit! My baby loves to suck on his hands too. It's so cute. You look absolutely amazing too!
