Jayne's Blessing

We blessed Jayne on March 1st and it was a really beautiful day. It is a wonderful feeling to have your family close and to hear your precious baby receive a blessing from her Heavenly Father.






Something that made it even more special for me was that Jayne wore the same dress that I was blessed in. I hope someday she will be able to use it to bless her daughter as well.



Jayne was blessed to draw close to her grandmothers whom she was named for (My mom's real name (she goes by Jeannie) is Clara Jean. We went between Claire and Jane for a while and of course finally settled on Jayne. We scrambled Jean to get Jane and added the Y to stand for my mom's maiden name, Yardley. I know, complicated...we also just liked the name Jane a whole lot and liked the spelling with a Y :) Nickala comes from Shane's mom who also goes by her middle name (Ellen). We certainly hope Jayne can emulate these incredible women in so many ways.



She was also blessed to be a good friend to her brother...



...to know her parents love her and will always do so...



...and to be a light to those in her life...and that you are little Jaynie :)

She's so cute and that dress is beautiful. Natalee was blessed in my dress too. I think that's a wonderful heirloom-y type thing to do. It was a beautiful blessing too.
