Blessing Day

Ahhh. It's over. Little bit of a stressful day up until about 2:30pm when all the food was out and everyone was just relaxing and enjoying themselves.

The morning was another story though. Tinkerpot only sleeps for about 2 hours in the morning and I had a whole lot to pack into that two hours and then The Marshmallow kept slamming the front door and woke her up half way through her nap. I was so mad! He said, "Well, I've got so much to do I don't have time to carefully close the door every time!" No duh! Like I'm just sitting on my tush waiting for Tink to wake up!

But it was okay. We got to the church in time although Marshmallow and I each had to make individual trips back to the house to get things we forgot. The blessing, given by Renee's husband, Scott was beautiful and very moving. A few cute ladies in my ward wrote down the whole blessing word for word and handed me the transcript after it was over. Those ladies are so great! Putting their shorthand to good use!

Tinkerpot slept for 11 hours straight last night without waking up. And because of that I should have slept like a log but I didn't. I was up every other hour checking to make sure she wasn't dead! I would have gotten more rest if she'd have just woken up once to eat! I can't help but worry.

She got her shots this morning and has slept all morning, poor thing. I know vaccinations are so important but it's a sad day when you have to endure your baby going through pain and then not feeling good. No more for a few more months, thank you.

I took pictures at the blessing of Renee's family, a few of her daughter Brooke and my mom. I'll post them all as I get them done.

Oh Amy, I've been checking your blog for this post. I am so excited for you. Getting the marshmellow to old Orchard had to have been stressful and rewarding at the same time. The road that you started on over three years ago (or has it been four years) was worth it on Sunday. Having your family surround your sweet little girl to celebrate her and to give her a blessing for her life. I hope you get a chance to take a deep breath and reflect on the tender moments of the weekend. Mother's day and blessing day, so many reasons to smile.
