On Sunday (3/3/13), we blessed Lila at church. (If you'd like a little more information about baby blessings, go here.) The blessing was beautiful and we were grateful to have so many family members there. Lila wore the blessing dress I wore when I was blessed as a baby and, thankfully, didn't cry at all during the blessing (though someone else may have. I'll let you guess who.)

The rest of the Hambly crew:
We don't go to church until 2:00, so we had a family lunch before the blessing. The luncheon made Ryan and I feel like real adults--it's the first time we've hosted so many people in our own home. And in true Hambly fashion, the food did not disappoint. (I can say that because I didn't make it--Ryan did.)
And quite a successful picture of the Hambly five:
Reeder and I did a mini photo shoot with Lila. Asher got bored quickly and wandered off to play, but Reed stayed for every last picture. Here are my favorites of our beautiful girl:
Reed thought she would like to hold his shamrock. He was right:
Little miss couldn't keep her eyes off Reeder--she loves her brothers!
