Together Forever!





The most exciting thing about the gospel is the message that families can be together forever. Like most things, I never knew how much that would mean to me until I was married and it meant even more when little Emree was born. One of the biggest milestones in Emree's short life happened this last friday. On friday night Tyler, Grandpa Baker, Grandpa Andre, Uncle Jordan, Great Uncle Mike, and Great Uncle Oren gave Emree a name and a blessing. Tyler did an amazing job. I know he was really nervous and spent a lot of time thinking and praying about what he should say. The blessing he gave Emree was absolutely beautiful. It reminded me why I married such a thoughtful man. Tyler and I were also very excited that our families sacrificed and took the long drive to Utah. And a big thanks to all of those who were able to be a part of Emree's special night. She looked beautiful, she didn't even fuss, and she didn't mess up her dress... Does a night get any better then that?

That is a beautiful little girl you have. You can tell from her expressions she is already getting more aware and alert. Believe me, they only get better over the next few months.
