Hi everyone,
Ryker was blessed this Sunday. We had so many grandparents and other family members. It was great that they all came to support him and that they love him so much. He looked so handsome but I was so busy that I didn't get a picture- everyone else did so when I get one, I will post it. He wore a little white tuxedo, shoes for the first time and was bundled in a shawl that great grandma Baer made him.
Grandpa Baer gave a beautiful blessing. I am so glad that I have a priesthood holder that is so close to me. Thanks to all who participated and supported us.
I bore my testimony, which is really big for me because I usually bawl the whole time. I did good though! I wanted repeat my testimony here to tell my family again how much I love them. I love my husband and son and am so happy to have my two guys. I also believe that Ryker came into our lives when he did to help us heal. With all the loss that we suffered in the past year, we needed a new spirit. The plan of salvation is so sacred to me. I feel joy knowing I will see all my loved ones again. I feel comfort in knowing that my Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and that he knows what we need better than we do. Prayer and the scriptures are powerful and there is so much comfort in following the teachings of the Gospel.
Love, Ashley, Dustin and Ryker

So glad you were able to share this day with so many loved ones. Family really is the most important thing in this life, and it's always a bonus to realize it early on in life. Hope all is going well for you guys. You're little guy is getting so big. I really should see him sometime.
