Oh what a blessed day!

A couple weeks ago, on August 7th, we blessed our sweet, little Savannah Hazel. We were lucky enough to have Erik's parents visiting for the first time when we blessed her. I'll post more about their visit soon. Anyway, Erik gave a beautiful blessing to Savannah. I have said this before, but she is such a sweet spirit and has truly blessed our home. She is a calming influence on all of us and we cherish every minute with her! She is getting bigger every day (and way too quickly I might add!), and she continues to light up our days with her big, happy smiles. We love you Savannah!! Oh, and some of you may be wondering, "Why the name Savannah Hazel?" Well, Savannah was actually a contender for Brooklyn's name,but we obviously went with Brooklyn. We still really liked the name (although, I was a bit hesitant using such a long name), so we used it. Hazel is my Grandma Hill's name, so it has special meaning. I never knew my Grandma Hazel, but I know she must have been an amazing woman because she raised an amazing son!

Our good friends who were able to make it. We missed those who weren't able to be there!

Congrats on your new addition Marcie! You look too skinny to have just had a baby! Did you make her dress? It looks so pretty.
