A bit of a side note, the stripped leggings she is wearing are called Baby Legs. We bought them yesterday and Alisa thinks they are SO cute that she had to put them on Nyla right away.

We walked the entire race and while we were not dead last, we were close! I am out of the 6-week post partum period and while I am cleared to run, I am in no condition to do so. Next year we'll run.
Here we are at Nyla's first race. Notice JJ shaved his goatee! Yeah!

Later I learned a little more about the history of this dress. Alisa's grandmother Deering made this dress for her older sister Chantelle when she was blessed. Alisa and both her sister's were blessed in this dress. Then both of Chantelle's daughters were also blessed in this dress. Nyla makes the sixth girl, and third great-granddaughter to be blessed in this dress.
Nyla did such a great job. She slept the whole time. Frequently babies will get a little fussy when 7 or 8 men gather around and all hold them as they are blessed. Nyla was completely out and didn't even notice.
The only bad thing about this dress was it was very easy for Nyla to get her fingers tangled up in it, what with all the ribbons and the knit pattern. It was a really great day, and for some reason it just makes things seem more official now that she has been named and blessed. We are just so happy to have her with us.
