Eleanor's Baby Blessing

This past Sunday our family celebrated Eleanor's Baby Blessing at church. All of our families were there to witness such a joyful moment with us. My father and grandfather flew in from Utah last Thursday for the event- we've been planning this day for months! It's so exciting to have them here and my grandfather performed the blessing for her. It was such a special and beautiful blessing, several members of the congregation came up to our family afterwards to comment about how wonderful it was, that it was unlike any other blessing they had heard, and how touching it was. It meant the world to me to have my own grandfather bless Ellie. He has been such a monumental influence in my life, Sunday will always mean so much to me.  Here are some of the pictures from our day.

Here's some pictures my sister and I took of her:

My top and skirt (from this recent purchase post) is from Forever 21- both are no longer available, my necklace is from Very Jane.

Ellie's dress is Sweet Pea's (from our church store), her headband is from Babies R Us and I added the three pearls in the center myself.
