Dear little Stella Bell,
On Sunday, December 4th, 2011 you were blessed. I know that you won't remember this wonderful celebration of your life, but I will. And someday, when I tell you about your blessing day, these might be the things that I'll say.
You looked beautiful.
You were surrounded with people that love you.

I already knew it, but your blessing confirmed it. Your heavenly father loves you. very very much.
Cambree and Sienna were amazed at how beautiful you looked. Cambree kept say, "Stella looks beautiful in her white dress!"
You slept the entire morning, and I was worried about you being awake for your blessing. Less likely if you were asleep to not cry. But you were awake. There wasn't a chance that you would fall asleep. You were bright eyed looking all around the chapel. Luckily, you didn't cry at all through your blessing. You are such an angel.
Your blessing was beautiful, as you stared up to the heavens. Someday I hope to know what or who you were looking at.
I was reminded how blessed I am to be the momma to such a sweet, pure spirit, so fresh from Heaven and the presence of our Heavenly Father. You are my joy, little Stella. I love you so very, very much.
All and all, it truly was the loveliest of days. One that I will treasure in my memory keepsake box forever. And even though you were the one being given a blessing, I truly felt like you were the blessing being given to me.
(Pictures above was the day she was blessed, just after I changed her. We borrowed the dress from my SIL, and I was worried about Stella spitting up all over it, so I changed her immediately after her blessing. I'm hoping to get some of her in her dress soon.)
