We just got back from a trip to Boise where we had Little's baby blessing. In our church, baptism is not performed on infants, but parents can choose to have their babies blessed by someone with authority. Since Jerry holds the priesthood, he got to bestow the blessing for our son. It was a special one compared to others I have heard, maybe mostly because it was for my own Little, but also because the opening included both Little's Chinese and English names. Grandpa Dean, Great-Grandpa Clark, and several uncles also participated. One of the members of the bishopric (seated on the stand above Little during the ordinance) told me afterward that as he was watching to make sure everything was done correctly, he had to smile because the baby was smiling, eyes alert and watching his daddy the whole time.

After church we had a meal with friends and family. More pics of that and the rest of the trip to follow...though it may take me a couple days because we are still unpacking (ack).
