According to traditional Mormon naming and blessing
of babies, James was blessed by his father, Ian.
James comes from a long
line of James' on my husband's side.
It is wonderful that he is named
to carry on the tradition.
It's always hard to get everyone
smiling at the same time.
Jim, me, James, Jessa, and Ian.
James is our third grandchild.
We feel very blessed.
Jessa is a wonderful mother.
We already love James so much.
