Christening Eliza

Last Sunday we blessed our sweet Eliza Mae. Reid's brother, Tom, decided to come out for the BYU v. CSU game, and his wife, Jana, decided to join him when she found out it was Eliza's big weekend. So, we did end up having family in town for it--a pleasant surprise. Our neighbors, and good friends also joined us that day.


Eliza is just the sweetest baby ever. She smiles all the time--except when the camera comes out! She reminds me of Grace as a baby in so many ways. She's got a similar calm, mellow temperament. She sleeps ALL THE TIME! She's overall just a really content baby as long as her needs are met. And she has somehow not caught the Fever/Rash virus that Abby had a couple weeks agao, and now the terrible cough that Abby has. Maybe i'll have a baby that actually has a bit of resistance to germs! Maybe she really does get my antibodies!!



I finished this dress the morning of her blessing. It wasn't exactly what i had in mind, but that's the risk i take when i refuse to use a pattern. Why do i refuse you might ask? I have no idea. I'm ridiculous--that's the only answer i can come up with.

I wish we could have been there, what a cute little girl! We can't wait to see you guys for Christmas, if we ever get tickets....

The dress was totally adorable, I would have never guessed you didn't have a pattern! You are really talented in the sewing department Emily!!!

SO CUTE! Love your little girls. Eliza looks like the sweetest girl. You've been blessed with an easy one! Yahoo!. And I'm dying that you make dresses and without patterns too! I can barely sew on a button. And the knitting you taught me in Boston - totally forgot. I so need to be domesticated.

I can't believe you just whip out dresses here and there. I guess that's what you get with three cute little girls, right??

I have to tell you that I LOVE MY BOSCH TOO! love love love. Had a kitchenaid for a while. They are so inferior.

And now, I really want your bread recipe. I use my mom's whole wheat recipe which is yummy too, but I'm ready for a change. Could you email it to me? I'd LOVE it. I can email you my mom's if you want to try a new one.

Your girls are adorable. Eliza looks so much like an Allred already!

I love, love, love her dress. We didn't get up to you guys to see it. In fact, Reid was quite intimidating up on the stands so we just snuck out right after. I will have to take a look at it next time I'm over though!
