baptism is the way that we begin on the path back to Heavenly Father by entering into a covenant with God. Today Abi promised to obey Jesus Christ and follow him. We are so proud of you Abi! And, since we also have a new baby in our family, we decided to bless Owen today also.
D&C 20:70). It's most common to do the baby blessings during sacrament meeting at church on Sundays, but since our family was all gathering for the baptism, we thought it would be most considerate to do it at the same time. And I also thought it would be good cause this little guy is a bit fussy, and we've never had a baby cry during their blessing, but I had a hunch Owen would be our first. I was right. Better to have a baby screamin' and kicking in a small room with family than in a large room with a microphone. He was all nice and sweet after we got home though. I was glad for a happy baby for our blessing day photo shoot.
I guess Owen was expecting dinner too, cause he sure got mad about waiting for a photo! It was a special day for Abi and our little fussy Owen
