Welcoming our babies: Baby blessings

Fam, a friend of mine just asked me to participate in her daughter’s blessing.  Beautiful! I suspect she reached out to me because of the interfaith feel she’s hoping to create. The baby’s father is Christian and my girl is spiritual-ish. Last time I checked she didn’t claim any religion. I have some suggestions that may work for the celebration. Here are a few:
