Anaiah’s Baby Blessing

This post is going to be written like a letter to my daughter:

Today was your baby blessing. Your Grammy Deb and Grampy were there, Aunt Judi and Uncle Chris, Aunt Bethany, Uncle Jon, Aunt Beth & your cousins; Owen, Wes and Ami as well as your Grammy Dot and Aunt Brenda. (and of course Daddy and I)

Unfortunately Beth and I both forgot our camera’s so we didn’t get to take any pictures 😦  I really wanted to take a picture of you with everyone from the family that was at your blessing. I did get pictures of you and your dress though!

Daddy gave you a beautiful blessing. In his circle was:

Grampy Ron, Uncle Jon, Uncle Chris, Bishop DellaPiana, Brother Shane Sargent and Brother David Brown. During the blessing you were so well behaved! Your Uncle Jon told me that you smiled and grabbed your grampy’s tie. You love to kick your feet and kicked Daddy a couple of times during the blessing!

I took some notes during the blessing and here is what I wrote down.

You were blessed that your body will be strong and healthy, that your mind will be pure and virtuous, that you would seek after the Lord and hold your covenants sacred, that you would be sensitive to the guidance of the spirit and be a righteous example to your  family and friends.



6 months!

It’s hard to believe that Anaiah is 6 month’s already!! She says “hi” regularly to us now. I swear she said it for the first time at 3 month’s old. I have the video some where.

Anyhow, she’s getting very vocal these days. Definitely trying to learn how to control her emotions. She’s angry one second, sad the next and then laughing. Luckily it’s fairly easy to redirect her and make her laugh.

She is still not sitting unassisted yet…well she can for a very little bit (maybe 5-10 seconds). And she has pulled herself a few times but not regularly yet.

So far her favorite foods are banana’s and sweet potatoes. She also seems to like peaches, peas and bread. She will eat carrots but it’s not a favorite. She does NOT like avocados and they made her sick last time she ate them.
