He was so excited to have so many visitors and was a complete angel the whole time.

Daddy was especially excited to have Great Grandpa Kirby there. Hudson was named after his grandpas; they all share the middle name, Edward.

Daddy seemed especially proud to be able to bless his son. Mommy was proud too.

When the blessing was finished and we all said Amen, Hudson was quietly staring at his Great Grandpa. It was a sweet moment.

“Every member of the church of Christ having children is to bring them unto the elders before the church, who are to lay their hands upon them in the name of Jesus Christ, and bless them in his name” (D&C 20:70). 

We celebrated with a nice lunch of sandwiches & salads and enjoyed some good company. It was a great day in the Kirby home.

So sweet. He looks like you. We blessed Robyn at home also, with just family and the bishop (who kind-of invited himself, but it was okay). I like the more intimate setting, with fewer people.
