Tyler's Blessing Day




This past Sunday was such a special one for our family. Tyler recieved his baby blessing from Mario with both my Dad and my brother Adrian standing in the circle. Usually baby blessings are on the first Sunday of the month, so we weren't even sure that he would be born in time to do it this month. Luckily he was born a little early and we were able to do it while my parents and sibblings were visiting. I am so grateful that Mario was able to bless Tyler. He did a wonderful job and you could really feel the spirit and the peace that a new baby brings. One special note is that the blanket Tyler was wrapped in was also used when Adam was blessed. It was given to us by a sister in my parent's ward (my old ward). While her son was in the hospital getting a heart transplant he she made it for us. It is an absolutely beautiful blanket! We feel so blessed by the new addition to our family and am so glad that he was blessed!

You are such a trooper to be back at church already! Adjusting from 1 to 2 hasn't phased you a bit! Bummed we missed the blessing. Tyler is sooo sweet in those pictures! Even sweeter in person-you lucky mama!
