2 months old- Payton in her Blessing Dress



Here is Payton when she was 2 months old. She got blessed a little late because she was so sick and we did not want to take her out in public until she got a little older. What a true gift from Heavenly Father!

This is one of my favorite photos from when she was 8 weeks.
