Day 61 - 2 Months Old & Baby Blessing

Dear Matthew,

Today you are officially 2-months old. Bad news, little man... 2-months old means it's time for immunizations. I'm not looking forward to it, but it's a necessary evil. Let's not dwell on it and simply move on to happier subjects.

Today was also the day of your Baby Blessing. Your Great-Grandpa blessed you which made today even more special. Your Great-Grandpa is 94 years old, and he has never had the opportunity to bless a baby before. I know he worried about doing things correctly, but I think he did a wonderful job. I love my Grandpa and I know he loves our family very much. I hope you have the opportunity to make many more memories with him.

Your Daddy came to church today, also. It's not something he particularly likes doing, but he got to participate in that he could hold you up after your blessing so that the entire congregation could see you. And he held you so high, well, there's no doubt in my mind that even the very back row got a good look at you. Your Daddy is so proud of you and loves you so much.

Speaking of Daddy, he is still waiting for you to smile at him. How about it? Just a little grin, that's all it would take to send him to Cloud 9 for a few days.

I love you, little man. You were blessed with so many wonderful things... there is no doubt in my mind that you will bring us, your parents, much joy during the coming years.

God bless you.

Love, Mommy

  1. That was such a beautiful blessing that your grandfather gave. It was almost poetic. I'd never would have guessed that he was 94! Wow. He looks great for his age! It was funny toward the end of the blessing when Matthew started to fuss when you could tell that Grandpa was getting a little bit stressed-- his started speaking louder and faster. . . but what came out still sounded so beautiful. Way to handle the pressure, Grandpa!

    I also loved it when Daddy held Matthew up-- he looked SO PROUD!
