I love baby blessings. I love that you can feel the love that Heavenly Father has for his children. I love that you can get a glimpse of who they can be, and what you as the parent need to do to teach them, and inspire them.
Annabella Mayleigh Thibodeau was blessed on March 4th, 2012. Jordan preformed the blessing using the Melchizedek priesthood. In her blessing it stated things about her being a mother, having a love of learning and being very loved by everyone. I can't help but think how she already is loved by everyone, and that she might someday be a great friend and women, maybe an example to others for why she would be so loved.
I also am excited to hear that she will be a mother, and will get to experience the blessings of motherhood. I also feel a great responsibility to teach her to want to be a wife and mother, to teach her the importance of a temple marriage, and to teach her the joys of having a family.
I also need to be sure that I teach her good and worthy things as she will have a love for learning. I need to teach her the importance and fun of learning, and books, and all skills to aid in her finding what she is good at and what interest her. Of course all of these things in her blessing are only going to come by good parenting and her choices. I can teach her and set the example, but she ultimately will have to choose for herself what she wants out of this life and the eternities.
I feel so blessed to have a daughter. I am so excited for the day she can join Young Women's and Relief Society. I am excited to have someone who will hopefully want to do girly things with me so I don't have to drag Jordan or Tristan (though right now Tristan doesn't mind).
What a blessing children are, and what a blessing to have a worthy priesthood holder in our home.

Was so grateful for the family and friends (which i put in the family category) that were able to come, and thankful for those that wished they could have come.
