June’s Blessing Day

October 18, 2010

Flora June Blair was blessed yesterday. Doesn’t she look radiant? Ben Blair blessed her to be happy and strong. After church, family gathered at our house and we had a panini feast.

She wore a pretty pintuck dress and sweater from BabyGap’s last spring collection and little winged booties from Oeuf — so angelic!

What a little beautiful darling! And her outfit is to die for. She is blessed, indeed!

She looks so sweet! I love her little outfit!

Is there any particular reason you chose to wait to have the blessing? We waited until Ezra was a little over two months to bless him so family could arrange to fly in. We had a few people here give us a hard time about it and I thought that was a little weird. We’re expecting again and I think this baby will be even older. I just think it’s nice to have grandparents there if possible.

Tell me more about this blessing idea- we don’t go to a church that practices this. Just curious! Is it similar to a dedication or baptism?

14 Veronika October 29, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Baptism happens at the age of 8, a blessing is for the baby to receive a name and a blessing, you can read the guidelines here. http://www.lds.org/handbook/handbook-2-administering-the-church/priesthood-ordinances-and-blessings/20.2#202

Your children make me so happy – they all look exactly like you. It reminds me of my own family, where people who knew my sisters twenty years ago will stop me and say “Are you an Olive?” because we all look so much alike. There’s no mistaking a Blair kid.

@Beth– I always wait a few months to bless our babies. I don’t see what the big deal is, I want family to be there and I am always in such a fog before that. I don’t know why people would bother you about it, there’s no rule it has to be done in a certain time period.
