Blessing. Great word. We had Diesel's blessing, he is such a little blessing, and I even felt many small blessings that day and over the weekend. It was much needed coming on the heels of some rotten weeks. One blessing about church on Sunday was that my kids stayed quiet during the meeting which is no small miracle, and Phoenix even fell asleep in my arms. That has NEVER happened. It was so sweet. Most especially since neither he nor I ever sit still - let alone at the same time. It was so fun to be able to sit and look at him and study his little features and look for the baby face in the little boy he has become. And there were 4 baby blessings that day in church. I could have sat there and listened to them all meeting long it was so special. It was such a happy day to hold and behold all my little ones.
I tried out a few comparisons here just for fun. It was hilarious to see how Diesel filled out every inch of the same blessing outfit that was so baggy on Cash. Poor little Cash was the skinniest baby you ever did see. Diesel was also a little older when we blessed him. It's funny that when all my friends and I had our babies here 2 months ago, we noticed that you could line them all up and know exactly which family they belonged to. So while Diesel is his own little man, I guess you can tell he really is one of us, and not totally unlike the twins either. Here are some comparisons:
Cash, Diesel, Phoenix, and Ashton
(Cash was just too skinny at his blessing to look anything like his future self, so the above picture is slightly older. The one below is a skinny version.)
