Such a blessing!


Baby Jake is such a fantastic little guy. He never stops smiling and is extremely interactive with anyone who is holding him. I think he is also my most engaging baby at the youngest age. I especially love it when he wants to 'play'. He will look at me with what can only be described as a coy look. He will look in my eyes and slowly stick out his tongue! When I then stick my tongue out at him he grins - sometimes even laughing out loud. It's amazing to me that he seeks out this type of interactive game at such a young age!

Today we blessed Jake at church. It was absolutely beautiful - it had snowed all night long and everything was covered in white and it was deep! Thankfully our church is close. Grandma Julie bought a darling suit for Jake to wear and he looked perfect. I felt so thankful as my fifth son was given a beautiful blessing by his father. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed at the responsibility of raising five strong, kind, men. I am so thankful to have Warren as a partner in this task. He is a fantastic father and husband.

Here are some pictures from this special day.
