Emerson's Baby Blessing

What a special day....In our church, we don’t have infant baptism, but we have baby blessings. It’s a priesthood ordinance that usually fathers perform. A group of priesthood holders will form a circle while they hold him and the dad will officially give them the name that they will be known by and then they are blessed with wonderful things. For example, they might be blessed with good health, to have a strong testimony of the Savior, to be charitable, to marry in the temple someday, or told of special gifts that they have.

It was so nice to have family and friends at his blessing!Emerson did so well! He was barley two weeks old, but we wanted to do it while my parents were still visiting!What an amazing day!
