For those of you who are unfamiliar with the LDS baby blessing, what we do is this: In one of our meetings, a worthy priesthood holder (often it's the father) stands in a circle, holding the baby, with other worthy men to bestow a blessing on the baby. It's like an official prayer to give the baby a name and to offer blessings from the Lord. We were able to do this with family around in Utah for Cole. I thought about Tessa's blessing, and how that took place in our ward here in Texas and was grateful for such wonderful people in our lives in both states.
Anyway, I wrote down as much that Jake said as I could remember afterward so that I could share it with Cole one day.
We had a luncheon after church. I was oblivious to the setting up and the cleaning up and have to thank my awesome relatives. Tessa had a blast running around with friends and cousins, pausing only to grab a cookie now and then, and I safely lost track of her for a little while. There aren't many times and places where that happens.
