blessed day...

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

After waiting 7 long months, we were finally able to have Asher blessed in our ward sacrament meeting yesterday. It was such a beautiful experience for me to watch my husband carry our son in his arms...and then to listen as he presented him to our Father...giving him a name, and blessing him according to the Lord's will. I was overcome with the Spirit, overwhelmed with love for my son, overpowered with a feeling of gratitude to my Heavenly Father for trusting us with such a special and noble spirit, and overjoyed at the circumstances which brought him into our life. A happy, joyous, beautiful, and blessed day it was.

I can't believe how much bigger he looks since the last time I saw him. He is turning into a real chunk and of course he looks so very handsome dressed all in white. You guys are such a cute little family.
