McCall's Blessing

The proud brothers

McCall's "bling" - thanks Jennie!

Ballerina slippers - thanks Amy!

We blessed McCall this past Sunday. It was a nice day and I am glad we did it because her dress, which is my blessing dress, was so tight around her chubby little neck that I almost couldn't do it up. I didn't think this would be a problem as I was 9 lbs 13 oz when I was born and she was 3 lbs lighter! But she has been packing on the weight, already past 10 lbs. She also broke out in a pretty bad case of baby acne, so we will be doing more pictures when she has cleared up a bit! But all in all it was a great day.

Kara she is just beautiful. I love that she wore your blessing dress. I wish my mom would have kept mine! Good thing I have Jessica's stowed away...and I think its a 6mo. size so it should fit her babies, right?

How sweet is she? The blessing Ryan gave was so beautiful. It was fun tonight and McCall was so good to snooze the entire time.

OH I love the bling too, and I am the one who gave it to you! My sister is GOOD huh? She is making one for my little baby girl as well! It may look the same... so dont be mad! haha! I love how chubbers she is! babies should be chubby!! We had the same issue with Porter when we blessed him. We waiting for a while so my family would be in town for it... and he was 3 months old HIs outfit... wow.. we had to safety pin shite fabric on the crotch just so it would be held down. Porter doubled his birth weight in literally 3 months. He was over 16 pounds when he was blessed!
I still have yet to hold that baby girl! I have been sick though, so I will keep my distance!
