Noah's Blessing Day

Yesterday was a big day for our baby boy. Not only did he turn six weeks old, it was also his blessing day! He wore the most perfect little outfit made by my mom-- an old-fashioned one-piece suit with knicker-style bottoms, a double-breasted vest with teeny bowtie, and a "Newsie" style cap. (The cap didn't stay on long... wiggly boy!). His proud papa officially christened him Joseph Noah and gave a sweet blessing for his life with us. It was a good moment, made even better by the fact that both Joe's and my family were able to be there and share it with us.
A pretty great end to a pretty wonderful year, I'd say!

    he's adorable! i have never seen a hat like that...too cute!

    i love the idea of a simple get-together! simple for me is having people here b/c the girls are at the age of crazy when trying to sit at a coffee shop or in someone else's home. let's plan a playdate one morning... we're home everyday!
