Ford's Blessing Day...
Sunday was such a special day for our family. Our sweet Stanford was blessed by Drew surrounded by our family. What a sweet spirit that was there.
In my DM's from Sunday I had a lot of questions about what a baby blessing is. It's similar to a Christening, only the baby is not baptized (that happens at the age of accountability in my religion, 8 years old). Rather a Priesthood holder, typically the father, gives the baby a sacred blessing in the name of Jesus Christ using Priesthood authority. Drew gave the most beautiful blessing to Ford that brought tears to my eyes. So grateful for my little family.
Also, I had lots of questions about my dress, it's an RP holiday dress coming to Nordstrom on Tuesday, November 10th!!! All other details from this special day are below!
