November Highlights!

November was a busy month, full of family, fun, and football.
 To start off the month right, Kenneth took me to the Taylor Swift concert at Minute Maid Park. We were surrounded by a million 13 year olds screaming their heads off.
 In the middle of the concert, she came to another stage that was on home plate, right below our seats. She sang three songs there on a rotating tree. It was pretty sweet!

 My cousin and her family came in town from Minnesota. It was so much fun seeing her and her kids, they have grown so much!
 Gigi with three of her nine great-grandkids, Trent is the only boy. She is very worried the Steely name is going to disappear some day with all the girl great-grandchildren.

 Felicity at her first UT football game! She did not take her eyes off the jumbotron the entire time.

Felicity got a new cousin! Mia Beth was born on November 21 at 7 in the morning. She was 8 lbs 6 oz, beautiful and healthy :)

Thanksgiving at the Steelys

Thanksgiving at the Passmores

 Felicity loves Christmas already! She could not get enough of her Santa hat.

Just in case you can't figure it out... Kenneth was Christopher Robbins, I was Pooh, and Felicity was Piglet. Her cousins were Tigger and Eeyore, they were all so precious!

St. Anne's Playdate

Although Felicity and Jackson did not do much playing at the park, it was fun to meet some new friends and be out in the beautiful weather!
Still working on holding up her head as good as Jackson can or 
maybe she is just being shy around her boyfriend :)

1st Astros' game

Last Tuesday, Felicity went to her first Astros' game. We were lucky to catch a game before the season was over, even if we lost. She said she could not wait until next year to see them!

Felicity's Baptism

We were so blessed to have the priest that married us, drive in to baptize Felicity. He is such an amazing example of Christ's love. During the ceremony, he had everyone in attendance say how they were going to support Felicity's faith life. Our friends and family said the most beautiful and inspirational things, bringing Kenneth and I to tears. What an amazing day! 

And people were bringing children to him that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it." Then he embraced them and blessed them, placing his hands on them.          Mark 10:13-16
 The bonnet she wore was the same one I wore when I was baptized.
Felicity loves her cousins.
 The two different oils used were the oil of catechumens (representing protection and healing from sin) and the oil of chrism (representing the presence of the Holy Spirit)
 Father Steven asked for 4 volunteers to read Scripture. My mom, Kenneth's mom, Jessica, and Gina all did a wonderful job!



 Nathan and Sarah Beth are going to be amazing Godparents :)

 We had everyone over at our house afterward for brunch.

She was exhausted after a long blessed day!

Felicity is 3 weeks old!

I can't believe it has been three whole weeks since the Lord blessed us with our beautiful baby daughter. She has already grown and changed so much! Kenneth and I feel so lucky to have a child of God with us everyday. We also realized how extremely blessed we are to have such amazing family and friends, who have supported our new family from day one. God is truly a faithful and loving Father. Here are some pictures from the first 3 weeks of her life!

 Right after birth!

 Proud daddy holding her for the first time.

 Day two, already a pro at poising for pictures. 

 Ready to go home!

 Coming home for the first time, Felicity even got a tour of the house.
