Jonah- like you've never heard it before

My MIL emailed this to me (thanks!):

I would go to church EVERY week if I could hear it told like that!  What an inspiring little girl.  I've got no more excuses for the 'Mormon Monotone', I'm determined to liven things up a bit when I deliver my next talk.

And while I'm on the topics of religion and water, last Saturday Nathaniel was baptized, and we blessed Jack in our home.

I was feeling overwhelmed, so we kept it very small and simple, inviting only parents and siblings; even so, we still had a houseful!  I think it's amazing to watch how families grow and expand over the years.  This is a world of change, and that is the only thing that is certain in this life.

I'm just trying to keep adapting to it, and keep on counting my blessings as I go along.

Great pics!

So how do you get to bless baby at home?? There seems to be a trend of that lately and I'm wondering why and how you do that...

PS-If we have a boy we are leaning toward Jack :)

I want to Bless our next child at home. I just think it sounds more sweet and intimate. Was it everything you wanted?
