Charlotte's Baby Blessing

Last night, we had Charlotte's baby blessing.  Josh requested a more intimate gathering, so being respectful of that we invited both my grandparents, our parents (obviously) and his friend from North Carolina, Jack and Joanna Taggart.  It was the sweetest blessing I have ever heard (not that I'm bias or anything) and she was wide-eyed looking at Josh the entire blessing!  I am so grateful for a wonderful husband who loves this little girl to pieces.  She has changed our life in so many ways and brought such a sweet spirit into our home.  Everyone that sees her, just loves her.  She is such a good baby, only crying when she is hungry and sleeping well at night.  We couldn't ask for a better baby.  One important detail- Grandma Shelia made Charlotte's blessing dress out of my wedding dress, which made it that more special.  It was the most gorgeous dress I've ever laid eyes on.  So grateful for a talented grandma that takes the time to make this dress.
