Ruby's Blessing


Ruby was blessed on Sunday and it was awesome.  Kyle was nervous but perfect, of course.  Ruby was also perfect--she slept the whole time.  I was proud of both of them.  Ruby wore the dress that my sisters and Lucy and I were all blessed in.  My mom bought it on her mission in Spain, so it's very Catholic-looking and pretty.  Our parents were able to be here for the weekend, which was great, because these grandmas needed a Ruby fix.  


I sometimes/usually feel kind of stranded here in Utah, but so many people came to see Ruby blessed.  We had 9 men in the circle, which I totally didn't expect!  All of my aunts and uncles in the state came, which was really great. It made me feel a lot better, knowing that I do have people here who care about me and my little family.



We had a little hangout afterwards--which meant that Ruby needed a new party dress.  (Really, she is just still too small for any of the dresses she already has.)  I fell in love with this velvet dress at Gymboree:

She was so cute in it!  It was the first time we really dressed her up. SO FUN to put her in tights and ballet flats and a headband.  What a doll.

It was an eventful day.  It's pretty neat that it was Ruby's first time in church, first time getting a blessing from her dad.  I'm grateful that Kyle holds the Priesthood and can perform this ordinance.  I'm glad I married him.

Ruby continues to be adorable.  As far as babies go, she is pretty dang good.

It kills me that I'm not going to make it up there to see her after all. She is so so gorgeous.

And you look amazing!

Oh Becca! Thanks for including us on yours (Kyle's too) and Ruby's very special day. I need to upload the photos off my camera (and I will encourage Diana to get hopping on hers too :)) and I will send them along. Please, please, please let's get a time we can feed you dinner and google over that cutie patootie Ruby! What a dolly baby!

I was just telling Kyle I've got to come over to give Ruby my personal blessing. I didn't read the invitation email until just today. That's 0 for 2 now. And I didn't even have a family wedding to hold me back this time. Sigh. One day...
