So also, way back in August, when Aiden was six weeks old, he was given a name and a blessing by Evan. We did it in Evan's parent's house to accommodate some scheduling issues. It was very nice. That was the same living room in which Evan and I were married two and a half years ago. We had a small group of close friends come and enjoy this sacred experience with us. I also have to give a shout out to our good friend, Ami, who was willing to take notes at the last minute. Since neither Evan nor I could recall the words said a few short hours later, it was such a sweet thing to have them forever written down. I would recommend it.
This is of Evan and Chris after the blessing. Chris and Teresa live in Ohio and were unable to attend Kyle blessing because although they lived here they were in Guatemala. It worked out so wonderfully that they were vacationing here in Utah when we wanted to bless Aiden. Chris and Evan have known each other and been good friends since they were 11 back in Edmond, Oklahoma. I love this picture.
By the way, always have a 15 year old aunt to entertain the children. Always.
Grandpa & GG Young, with Mammi and Aiden. Mammi says that Aiden whispers his every want and desire to her. He often wants his Mammi, according to her. But in this case, he just wanted his bib and shoes off.
This is my sister, Oliver (her husband) and their sweet little 2 week old daughter, Addison. She is so stinkin' cute and a mini-Heidi.
Our first family photo where I am not two seconds post-partum. I know those are necessary photos, but not flattering for the mother (and sometimes not even the baby).
