Anaiah’s Baby Blessing

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

Anaiah,
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.

First foods!

Anaiah stopped sleeping through the night right around 5 month’s old so I decided to start her on solids. We are doing baby led weaning so I skipped rice cereal and went right for banana’s. She wasn’t quite ready to chew yet so I mashed them up and she loved them! After about 72 hours we introduced carrots. She doesn’t like them quite as much as banana’s but she doesn’t dislike them either. About a week after that I decided to try Avacado. Not only can she not stand it (the taste makes her gag) but it also made her throw up 😦 So for now Banana’s and carrots.

Here are a few good web sites for anyone that is interested in reading into it:

This site tells you what are good first foods.

For your viewing pleasure here are a few pictures. Speaking of Anaiah she is demanding my attention so off I go. I really am going to try to blog/journal more. Some of my posts may be private though so we’ll see.
