Last weekend we gave our daughter a name and a blessing. There is nothing quite like handing my newborn baby to my husband and listening to him bestow them with all the wonderful blessings that God has in store for them. This girl is and will be something pretty special.

family pictures are pretty hard with toddlers. 
in case you were wondering.


  1. you look great and Elsie looks perfect in your dress! I cant wait to meet her.

  2. What great photos!!! I totally get the toddler thing. HOLY COW, it's hard to get them to be perfect for a fraction of a second while the shutter closes ahhahahahaha. I mean is it really too much to ask? Everything looked great! YOU LOOK GREAT!!! I can't wait to bless our girls. I am so excited!!! It still seems forever away though. UGH!! Blessings really are the greatest things!! It really is a great thing to have our children receive blessings from their fathers. She looks so beautiful in her little white dress. And all the food looks fabulous. And I want to tell you our family isn't very traditional with the baby blessing "guidelines" either hahahaha. I just realized I never responded to your IG reply. So that's fun she was blessed on a Saturday.
