The Ceremony and Finale for Littlest's Naming

If you missed the first two posts click Part 1 - Fam pics and Background or Part 2 - Decorations :)

For the ceremony, my Mom walked Littlest into the room (a sweet honor), the Rabbi (who was recommended to us ETA: and did both of the boys bris, which were wonderful) told a couple stories and how it ties in to the Bible, said some prayers for and over HM and us, gave her name, her Hebrew name and the meanings, Hubby gave a little speech about where they were from and what they meant to us, and then we all dug into the celebratory meal, hung out, and then cut into the cake. I honestly forget everything the Rabbi said, I wanted to record it and with so much else going on, completely forgot. He has such a strong accent and he is such a funny character. Here are some pics from the little ceremony. :)

During the ceremony we had my Mom hand Littlest to each of the grandparents and great grandparents to hold and give a little kiss.

Happy fam :) Really, both boys have been so sweet to her from day. one. (Little is still working on being gentle all the time :) but they both ask to hold her and they talk to her and are excited when she's up and awake :) now, they have their own toy tiffs but they LOVE being bros and are really become buddies, it is so sweet!!)

{excuse my goofy way happy smile, I am really happy ;), and my double chin (not so happy about that ;-)}

Seriously, we thank God everyday for His abundant blessings!! Though we may not always think things are "perfect" (if there is such a thing besides our Lord and Savior) or we may worry or wish something would change or be different, I am not being cheesy at all, but though everything is not perfect and we are not perfect, our life is "peeerfect!" To God be ALL the glory.
