Esme's Blessing Day

Esme didn't have a giant entourage like the customary Utah baby blessing, but she looked lovely and Brian was eloquent as usual. Brian's parents are here from Oregon and his grandma, aunt, and cousins were able to come as well as our friends Anna and Joe. Eli was thrilled to play while Esme was tired of the whole thing by the time we could take pictures. We were only at church for half an hour or so, but she screamed in vain for her necessary swaddling and dark, quiet room to fall asleep. Anna worked her magic and got Esme to calm down, so we got a few pictures of her without her head thrown back and screaming. It was really nice to be with family and show off our little angel.

What an angel little Esme is too! It was wonderful to be with you on her important day. The blessing was beautiful as was the entire day!
