Sunday, April 12


Today was a special day. Not only because it is Easter, but also because we blessed my little niece today in church. I have not mentioned Davanee before on the blog, so let me tell you a little about her. She was born on February 24 and at 7 lbs 13 oz, she was perfect! (this statement necessitates an exclamation point) Here she is with her proud father, my brother Bryan.

and with her mom, Meredith...

While she was still in the hospital, me and Chris were able to go and see her. Only I held here at the hospital. Anyone that knows Chris would understand why. However, I was able to convince him to hold her after a few weeks!

Today, Easter Sunday, was the day we blessed Davanee in church. All of my family was there and most of Meredith's. As you can see, when my family gets together it is no small thing, however, we were able to squeeze everyone into a picture!

Davanee was blessed by her father. For the occasion, Meredith's mom made a special blessing dress for her to wear. Davanee had been calm all morning, but when it was time for the blessing she started to cry. I guess she doesn't like to be man-handled. To her credit, she did stop crying about half way through the blessing.

All in all a wonderful day. Happy Easter!
