Baby Blessing.


G was blessed Sunday evening by his Daddy. It was beautiful. Dashing Boy did such a beautiful job. I had to dart into the kitchen afterwards to wipe my eyes I was so touched.

We sure love this little guy. It was wonderful to celebrate him.

His blessing gown is an heirloom. Made by my Grandma and worn by all of her children's children for blessings and baptisms. Every baby who has worn the gown has their name embroidered on the slip underneath. G is beginning the next generation of names!

There is also a baby bonnet with it that I just love and think is so precious. But Grandma and everyone gave me orders that G is not to wear the bonnet as it would make him look like a girl.

But I don't always do what everyone says. And I think it's cute and old fashioned. And G is gorgeous. A gorgeous little man. So I took a bunch of pictures of him in it.

I think this one is hilarious: "Hey! What am I wearing!"


He sure is a sweet babe.

What a beautiful smocked christening gown Jenny. I bet that Great grandma Shirley was so proud.

I am so happy that your sweet baby is here and you are all well.

He looks perfect and beautiful (in a very manly way, of course!). You must be a very proud mama :)

I'm so glad you posted pictures, Jenny. What a beautiful job your Grandma did on the gown. What a treasure it will be to all of you to hand down again and again. He is getting so big and he looks so happy and healthy. You're a wonderful mother, just as I knew you would be :)
