Blessing Day!

Ian was blessed on Jan 18th along with his new cousin Bridger. He was given a beautiful blessing by his father. Thanks to all who could attend. To all those who could not attend, we missed you!
Ian's grandma "B" made his cute blessing outfit. Didn't she do a great job?

We were so excited to get a dual baby picture with the babies grandparents, I have been wanting one for Bridgers whole life. Ha Ha

After the blessing we enjoyed 4 different flavors of bundt cakes. A big thank you to my mother-in-love Debbie for her help in making some fabulous bundts.

Among many of our kind attendees, my Californian sister Amy was among them, thanks for coming.

Ian is doing very well, and is sleeping through the night (most the time). He is really getting into the smiling thing (for the past month) especially after eating. He gives us big grins. The best is when he catches my eye from across the table and gives me a big grin, without be googled at. The hard thing is trying to get him to smile, when the camera is poised in front of him. Instead of smiling he stares at it with pursed lips. Just my luck! Oh well we will catch him sometime.
It is so fun!

Funny story: The other day Mckenna was trying to make one eyebrow raise while the other lowered. She was having a hard time and asked me why she couldn't do it. I replied that is takes practice to strengthen those muscles. She wasn't too appeased by my comment but stopped asking. She went over to Ian to look at him, and would you believe, he looks at her and makes the exact facial expression she was trying to accomplish. She said "Mom, how come Ian can do it." I just laughed and said "I don't know."
