Abby's Blessing

Andrew needed to take his board exam in March, so we decided to have Andrew take it up in Minnesota by my family, where I could spend time with them while Andrew studied.  We figured since we would be up there, we might as well bless our little Abby while we were up there. (In our church, babies receive priesthood blessings from their fathers (or father figure) when they are an infant to receive a name and a blessing. )  It worked out perfectly and it was a beautiful day. My sister and her husband (I didn't get a picture with them! Ah!) were also able to come down from Minneapolis to be there for the blessing. They were expecting their first little girl at the end of May at the time! (They have since had their cute little Jane.) Yay for cousins!

Abby is our bright-eyed girl.  She has looked shocked from day 1. :)

 Abby is wearing the same dress that Eliza wore for her blessing. It is a handmade dress that Andrew's Grandma Oscarson made for Andrew's mom when she was a baby.  It is absolutely beautiful! (Hence why we only had Abby wearing it for about 15 minutes. :) No risk of blow-outs in this dress!)

 Abby and her daddy.  Abigail means "my father's joy," and she sure is. She brings all of us so much joy! Her middle name is Marie, which means "wished-for child," and oh how we wished for this girl! We sure are blessed to have such wonderful daughters!
