Boen had his blessing yesterday! He was given the name Boen Brent Call. We went with my dads name as his middle name because he will carry on the Call name which is a wonderful honor to the Call family, and I wanted to honor my dad somehow. The blessing was beautiful, it made me tear up quite a bit! We could not have asked for a better day! It poured Sat. and is pouring today, but yesterday was perfect! I was so grateful to have such a wonderful circle of men around my baby boy. My Grandpa Speechly was even there. He is getting quite old and doesn't get out much so it meant the world to me to have him there. It made me cry to see him walk back to his seat with a huge smile! I really felt such a wonderful spirit. I know that I am part of the only true church on the earth. It is such a wonderful church to be a part of. I am grateful to have a husband who holds the priesthood, and for a father and father-in-law who do as well. Thank you so much for such a perfect experience. I am so grateful to my mother and my grammy who pulled it all together. They helped set up, made the most wonderful Mexican food, and did so much more! My mother-in-law made a wonderful jello salad and green salad, Brody's aunts, and grandma also made wonderful desserts! My little sister made her specialty cookies and Apes brought the finishing touches! Thanks to all of you, it would not have been so great with out all of your hard work! Boen was perfect all day long! He looked so handsome in his blessing outfit. I am so blessed to have such wonderful little boys. Bingham loved the whole day too with all of his favorite people!

Oh Amy, I had no idea about your beautiful little baby Bingham. It has been so hard for me to adjust and accept that Bree will struggle.
I would love to get together with you sometime and pick your brain, I am sure you have some awesome ideas on helping certain delays.Our doctor told us that one of the most important things is to keep her social, so anytime you are up for a playdate count us in:)

There is a blog that I think you should take a look at. It is not very old but it is a wonderful network of Mom's and ideas.

Boen is so sweet. I was glad to hear that the blessing was so beautiful. I always get teary... It is such a powerful circle of men; and a truly special moment!
