Marinn Sophia Rosenvall

Today Marinn was given a name and a blessing in the Butterfield Stage Ward in Temecula.  Each of our kid's blessings have been so special and I am so grateful for the opportunity that each one has been given their own individualized blessing.  It was such a beautiful day spent with family and good friends. 
As you may or may not know, we have chosen not to give our girls a middle name.  I don't have a middle name and I have never really missed having one.  When we named Marinn, it just seemed like there was something missing.  As Bryan and I discussed it (literally the night before the blessing), he mentioned that he feels like she should have a middle name. It's crazy how the name Sophia popped into my head, for no other reason than I just really liked the name.  We both felt that it was the right fit.  So, as Bryan gave her a name and a blessing, he gave her the name Marinn Sophia Rosenvall.  That is the first time either of our families had heard the name and after the blessing, Bryan's dad told us that Bryan has a great, great, great grandmother named Sophia.  Well, there you have it.
I love the tradition of our girls all wearing the same blessing dress.  In fact, all of my nieces on my side of the family have worn this dress. P.S. I LOVE my family
