Fin's Blessing

Riley was able to bless Finley on September 27th and it was the most perfect day. It was amazing to see my husband, dad, father-in-law and all of mine and Riley's brothers stand in the circle to bless Fin - there were a lot of them! Riley gave a beautiful blessing and I think it was one of the best moments of my life. It was totally overwhelming for me to see how many good influences Finley will have in his life and to see how many people love him. We have the greatest families.

Finley wore a little romper that all of my brother's wore when they were blessed. It's vintage - 35 years old! We were worried that he wouldn't fit in it because he's getting so big, but it fit him perfectly. We used to have little white leather shoes that went with it, but in all of our moves over the years, they got lost somewhere. :( My mom thought he needed leather shoes, so she bought him some that match his outfit too; little blue and white shoes. They were so cute.

When I went on a study abroad to Jerusalem 5 years ago, I got a little white blanket from Bethlehem to bless my babies in. It means to much to me to wrap my baby in this blanket from Jesus Christ's birth place. There's just something special about it and I'm glad we got to use it with Fin.

Being blessed just wore him right out

Fin is just the light of our lives. We love him so much and can't get enough of his cute little face! Can you tell?
