    This is our newest family member Aryiana Lynn. Pictures were taken at about a week old. We had her blessed by my husbands father (What a great man). The dress she is wearing was made by my aunt and mother when I was born. Yep, this is my blessing dress. Mind you that I was blessed when I was about 6 months old and somehow the dress fits my little one at a week old lol. The blanket she is laying on was made by my grandmother (my dads mom) just for the baby blessing. She did such a wonderful job. I can't wait to pass both of these items down to my daughter when she has her first baby girl.
    Enjoy!
    P.S. I am recovering from my c-section very well :D

    How special to use this blessing dress. The dress is beautiful. When I made my daughters wedding dress I made sure I had extra fabric so I could make a blessing dress for our first granddaughter. Still no granddaughter, but I have made both my grandsons beautiful little blessings outfits with some of the material. I remember when my children had their blessings. It was quite an event since they are triplets.
    Took up a good portion of the meeting just to get them done.

    Welcome baby Aryiana! She is precious. It seems only yesterday you told us you were expecting. What a blessing. I am glad you are doing well after the c-section. take your time and savor that little one. The dress, the blanket, the blessing from grandpa are very special to welcome new baby. Thanks for sharing the pictures and story.

    The dress and the baby are beautiful. She looks so alert for a week old. She doesn't want to miss any of the festivities!!!!!!!!! So precious.........

    Miss those days as my grandchildren are all boys and now 6, 9, and 12. But I wouldn't part with any one of them. They are the love of my life.

    Enjoy her everyday.......

    Love
