his special day
James was given a name and a blessing in our home on Saturday, January 9th! It was such a special day for our special boy! Due to the craziness of Eric's work schedule, we planned this blessing very last minute which means we hardly gave notice to our family, but our amazing parents traveled from Utah to be with us to celebrate James' blessing day! We are especially grateful that we were able to do the blessing in our home (instead of our church on Sunday) because Mia came down with croup (awesome) that weekend and we would have had to cancel the blessing. Everything aligned perfectly and we were able to celebrate with our parents, my cousins who traveled from the east valley and good food! We are so thankful for the love and support shown to our baby boy from family and friends near and far!
When Mia was blessed, I knew I wanted to find her the perfect "princess" dress, and that I did :) But I didn't really know where to start with a blessing outfit for James. My parents sent me a few pictures while they were out shopping one day and Eric and I instantly fell in love with shorts outfit (we must be turning into Arizonian's, if that's a thing) I narrowed down 3 outfits I liked, Eric narrowed it down to 2 from there, and since I couldn't make a decision I let Mia give the final vote. She looked at one outfit then quickly moved to outfit #2. After sizing it up she gave a huge smile, pointed at it and exclaimed, "dat one!" Her choice couldn't have been more perfect for our dapper little man! I love how involved she is with her brother... they are the sweetest of siblings! James looked absolutely perfect in his precious blessing outfit!
