I was so nervous that she would cry during the blessing. She is a really happy baby, unless she is hungry or tired. If she is hungry or tired, then the only thing that really helps to calm her down is for her to nurse. We got to church a little early so I got her dressed and then I nursed her so she would be as content as possible when it came time for the blessing. She was smiling all the way up to the time that she was blessed and she was perfect for the blessing. She is always so alert and she just looked around at the circle of priesthood holders as Scott blessed her.
Scott is seriously the best dad ever. He did such a great job, and the blessing was so sweet. Here are a few of the things that I remember:
- Know that she is loved by her Heavenly Father and He wants her to be happy
- Have the desire to read the scriptures and develop a testimony of her own
- The ability to make friends and be an example and a light to them
- Physical Health
- Desire to make sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father, baptism and marriage in the temple.
I am so grateful to be a member of the church. I can't wait to teach Lacey about her Heavenly Father and how much he loves her.
I was able to make the blessing dress for Lacey. It didn't turn out exactly how I had pictured, but I'm a little proud of how pretty it turned out to be. My mom made my blessing dress, and I considered using the same dress for Lacey, but then decided to make her one.
