On Sunday, June 24, 2012 we finally had Micah's baby blessing. We decided to do it in Utah so more of our family could be there and we knew we were going to be in Utah at the end of June anyway. We decided to do it at my parent's house because it didn't make sense to bless him at a random ward full of people we didn't know. There was a little confusion between the three bishops (our Virginia bishop who said we were no longer in his ward, our California bishop who said he had no idea who we were since we had not been to church there yet, and the bishop of my parent's ward who said one of his counselors could be there to preside, but he couldn't give us "permission.") but we finally got it all squared away the night before (or was it the morning of..?).
Micah did wonderful during his blessing and they told me he was looking around and smiling at everyone in the circle. Julia decided during the blessing was the perfect time to try to get some attention and tried to talk through it all, so I spent half of it trying to keep her quiet and I had to ask Robert later on what was said. Afterwards we enjoyed a luncheon with everyone who attended.

So lucky to have so many people that love him there.
