Henry's Blessing

We blessed Henry on March 4th, 2012. It was a beautiful day and Chris gave Henry a beautiful blessing. It was so wonderful to have all of our friends & family in attendance. Afterwards we had some yummy food & visiting at our house. It was a wonderful day to celebrate Henry!

Henry was blessed in a sweet little Norwegian hand-knit outfit that all of the boy cousins on my side of the family have been blessed in. Such a fun tradition!

The only bummer of the day was that we found out two days later that Emme had Hand Foot & Mouth Disease that day! (Thank goodness we didn't send her to nursery...) You can see it in her cheeks in these pictures, right after she woke up from her nap. Out of the 10+ kids who were at our house on Sunday, she has only passed it along to one of them so far. (So sorry, Cambree!) Yikes. And, she's passed it along to Chris...but that's a story for another day. No idea where it came from, but we'll be super glad to be rid of it soon!

Have I mentioned how much this boy loves his swing? This boy LOVES his swing. In between being held by many hands this day, he got a little swing time in, while Emme watched over him. He'll swing and swing and swing and stare at the lights & fish, and when the music stops he'll squawk for a minute until you turn the music back on, and then he'll swing and swing and swing some more. It's adorable.

Thank you to everyone who came to help us celebrate Henry. We are so grateful to have you all close and we love sharing our lives with you!

I love the pictures with Grandmother and Grandfather. Looks like such a wonderful day. I'm sorry about Emme being sick. :(
