We blessed Avey on Sunday, the 25th. Several people gave their compliments and said it was very nice. It was a wonderful experience. She slept all through the meeting, and was zonked out during the blessing too.
Speaking of spoiling her parents immensely, for the last two nights I was there, Avey slept 6 hours in one stretch at night! My sister-in-law with whom we stayed (mother of two) is convinced that we have no idea what "real" parenthood is like. Our second will probably wail 24/7, but in the meantime, we're happy as can be.
Now, some credit to the woman who is doing the majority of the work; Kira is turning into a mom more and more all the time. A prouder parent you've never seen (except for me, maybe), and she loses sleep and spends most of her time feeding and doing things for anybody but herself, but speaks nary a whisper of complaint. Avey and I are truly lucky to have her.
More pictures and news to come!
