Chris gave an amazing blessing. I am grateful for a husband who honors the priesthood and is able to exercise it at all times because he is such a good guy!!! Chris, Russ Lawrence, Todd Corbett, Jonas Manuel, Brian Thomas, Carl and Thomas Fredrickson, Bretton Hadfield, Curtis Williams and Daniel Cabaniss stood in the circle to give the blessing. Truly, Cooper is a gift from God! He is pure and perfect! If ever anyone questions the goodness or perfection of God, hold a baby. It was also testimony meeting. I shared mine. As I was walking back to my seat, Cadence loudly calls out from her seat, "Mom, I want to say my testimony." Obviously, many giggles and smiles were evident in the congregation. I didn't help Cadence except for holding her up. She said her prayer. "Heavenly Father. Thank you. Bless the food. Mommy, Daddy, Cooper, Cadence, Gramma, Grampa." I asked her if she wanted to say anything else. She didn't and closed "Name of Jesus Christ. Amen." She's too cute. Chris shared his too. My sweet friend and former student, Jennifer Fredrickson, shared hers. She had Down's Syndrome and is such a sweet person.
After sacrament meeting, we went home with our friends and family. Our little meal with marinated chicken breasts, 3 types of salad, rolls and bread, and dessert (including the best pecan pie ever). Visiting with our friends and family was such fun!
I think Cooper is such a great model. His little suit looked so good on him. His belly is so big that his shirt wouldn't stay tucked in.
I got his blessing outfit at the farmers market. This is the little hat that came with it. I think he looks like a little Pope with it!
Finally, a picture that shows his blue eyes!!!
I love my baby!!!
