Carly's Day

Our families took over the foyer after church. Who can resist those pictures with the scratchy wall carpet, bad lighting and floral couches? You know the drill; you with baby, us with baby, us with you, parents with baby, kids together, you, me, kids, etc. I think we took every picture combination possible. It was a fun couple of days though. A great baptism and confirmation, and 2 beautiful baby blessings. I love hearing what the dads have to say, and seeing a circle with so many handsome, worthy boys holding my baby. Just perfect.



My beautiful baby. This dress is the one my sister and I wore, made by LeAnn. LOVE IT.

Yeah, I'm the first to comment! I love the picture of Easton holding Carly! I'm still so jealous of that, cause I don't know if I'll ever get a picture of Nathan showing that much love to Jackson. She looked so cute in her dress with her perfect sized head band and flower! Glad you got some good pictures, even if you're sitting on floral couches with scratchy walls in the background.

There is nothing more attractive than watching our hubbies give those precious babies those blessings! So how bad did you cry? (Tygh chokes up each time he gives our kids their blessings and I can't help but blubber). Love the photo montage.

I'm so glad we could be part of that special day. I was feeling frustrated about the background of all my photos the whole time but what can you do? I'm so glad to see the one of Carly in her blanket since she was not happy, only because she was hungry and tired from that long photo shoot, when I tried to get that shot.

The dress was so perfect and I'm so happy that she wore it.

That is awesome that you wore that dress too. How fun. She is a doll and I love all her cute faces in the pics (especially the pic of her and E). She is beautiful!

Megan and Greg said...

NO WAY!!! You wore that dress? Too cool. I LOVE her head band by the way. SOOOO cute! And I love the way you wave your hair. You're such a freaking babe!

Miriam said...

She is so cute (and so chubby)! The last picture is adorable. I love that about the dress. My girls have both worn the dress that my sisters and I wore that our granna made us. So special!

Melanie said...

Oh, man I wish we could have been there too. I really need that pink picure of Carly!! I love it! It made me tear up too, like Jenni. I think I know where we got the easy crying thing... I really want to come see you!

Lizzy said...

Seriously, she really is the cutest baby. I love those cheeks and eyes. Love all the pictures!

Oh she looks so cute in her little blessing dress! How cool that it's the same one you wore when you were a baby! I love her little headband, too. I need to make some of those for this new girl.

Ben & Diane said...

What a perfect and cute baby! That's great that you got to have such a great visit with family.

Jill said...

Oh my goodness, she is beautiful! And she HAS grown too much. I hate to think about how big she'll be when I get to see her again. GOT to make that happen sooner rather than later.

Love that she wore your dress. That is so neat. I just love the one of her and her big brother. What cuties.

OREGON SOUTHWORTHS said...

LOVE that last picture of Carly!! What a little cutie! You have to stop posting such adorable baby pictures... it's making me too baby hungry! ;)

Lizzie said...

Em, how are you already skinny? I'm sure you don't feel like it, but you really are. It's unbelievable. I look HUGE in both of my kids blessing pictures.

And Carly is beautiful. = )
