Noahs Blessing Day

Last Sunday, we were able to bless our little baby Noah and share it with all of our family and friends. It was a very special day, I was smiling all day long. The day filled my heart with joy and peace. There something about baby blessings that just, I don't know melt my heart and make me feel all warm. I know it's the spirit giving me these emotions and that I am really grateful for. I start to tear up and begin to imagine this little souls future and all the possibilities life has to offer. Almost 4 years ago, I had Liam, then I joined the Church and was baptized. If someone were to tell me that one day soon, you are going to be living in Salt Lake City, Utah and on September 6th 2009 your husband Clint, will be blessing your son Noah. I never would have believed them in a thousand years.

To this day, joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been the best decision I have ever made. It changed my life, outlook on everything and best of all it changed me. The world was opened up to me and my blessings were awaiting me. All I had to was reach out and grab them one by one. I have gained many life lessons and one lesson that I can pass on is - When life shuts one door, it opens a window and all you have to do is jump.

It was a perfect day!

Hey I know I'm super late in saying this, but congrats on your sweet baby boy! He looks adorable. You might have a couple of heartbreakers when they get older. Hope everything is going well for the Stallings.

PS Brooke Bevan's hair is amazing! She can totally pull that off.
