Lars's Baby Blessing

Greg and other members of our family blessed little Lars on April 30, 2017 in our sacrament meeting at church. It was a beautiful blessing. He prayed for Lars and offered some wisdom for his future life. If you've seen the episode of the Office when Pam and Jim get married, whenever they have a special moment they stop and take a mental picture by pretending to hold a camera in their hands. Seeing my husband carry our sweet baby boy to front of the chapel and having our dads and brothers and uncles and friends join them in a circle and say a prayer for Lars was one of those moments for me.

I wanted to get in on the legacy making, so I woke up hours before the boys and I wrote Lars a long letter. I included all the general life advice I have for him at this point and how much we love him and wanted him in our family. Then I emailed it to the email account I set up for him the week he was born. I thought it would be fun to email him throughout his young life. Ha! Hope he appreciates it. 

I'm so glad we got to share the day with many people that are close to us. After sacrament meeting, everyone came over to our house for brunch and got to take turns holding Lars and taking pictures with him. He was quite the entertainer! He wore the same white outfit and shoes that Greg wore on his blessing day. And the white blanket he was wrapped in is a blanket I bought in Bethlehem on my study abroad.

After everyone left, we took naps and then I set up the camera to take some pictures of our little boy. He's just the cutest!
