I finally get to post about Hayden's blessing! It was such a nice day. We had a smooth morning, he ate, we changed him, Cory and I got ready in time, he spit up not on his blessing outfit... It was great. Then we get to church and felt like the Bishop took FOREVER with the ward business! It really probably wasn't that long, but I was just so anxious to get him blessed before he started sobbing crying because he was getting sleepy. It was finally the big moment and Cory did such a great job. It was such a sweet and special blessing. Hayden started to cry a little at the very end. Almost like he was saying, "Ok Dad! That’s enough, this blessing has been long enough..." After the blessing was over I wrapped him up and he was out cold! For all of sacrament meeting! It was glorious. I bore my testimony, and got through without crying!
When we finally got him home I knew I needed to change him, Grandma said she felt a little somethin', somethin' rumbling earlier. And sure enough, I unwrap him and I hear, "oh dear!" I turn him around and there is a lovely brown color showing through his white pants! I could have died. Poo all up his onesie, clear up to his shoulders! Luckily we got the brown nastiness out. He was good the whole rest of the day. It was so fun having both of our families and hanging out with Hayd. It was such a great special day.
I love both of my boys. My little boy and my grown boy. Hayden is so sweet. I’m so glad Heavenly Father trusts me enough to let me be his mom. He has such a cute smile; you can't help but smile and talk back to him when he flashes his big gummy grin at you. And his eyes get bluer and bluer every day. He has taught me so much, and I love being his mom. I am so grateful to be married to a priesthood holder who could give our son such a special blessing. I love Cory, he keeps me grounded and helps me loosen up and remember what’s important. He is such a great dad, Hayden loves him so much. I am so grateful I can be with him forever.
It was such a good day; I can't believe it's over. I had thought about it so many times. Wondering what it would be like... and now it’s over and Hayden is almost 2 1/2 months... crazy. I feel like such a lucky girl.
Fun info about the day:
-Hayden was blessed in the blanket I was blessed in that my Great Grandma made. (so his Great, GREAT grandma McBride)
-My Grandma McBride(his Great Grandma) took short hand of his blessing! Thanks so, so much Grandma! Your the best!
-Hayden was blessed in the booties Cory and all of his brothers were blessed in. They were made by Cory's Great Grandma Hamilton. (Hayden's Great, GREAT Grandma!)
-My side of the family also has the tradition of being blessed with baby rings. They baby wears their mom's baby ring and then they have their owen baby ring; its kinda tied onto their wrist with ribbon. (in the pictures his ring is the silver one and mine is the gold)
