In our Church we give our babies a name and a blessing. Two weeks ago, October 25th, on Sunday we had Ella's baby blessing. It was pretty sweet watching my husband bless our little girl. The water works started before the blessing even did! haha After we had our close friends and family over to our house for some lunch. It was such a great weekend! Both of our parents came into town, and some of our siblings were able to be here for it as well. Ella was able to wear the same blessing gown that I wore when I was blessed. It was handmade by my Nana. She also made a matching blanket that goes with it. Along with that we also used the same christening blanket that my Great Great grandmother, so Ella's Great, Great, Great Grandmother, made for my mother when she was Christened. All of my siblings have used that blanket and all of our children have used it. I love having such sentimental and traditional heirlooms in our family.
