How do I report the blessing of a one year child?

And they brought children to him to touch them, but the disciples were gromili them. When Jesus saw it, he was outraged and said unto them, let the suffer come unto me, and do not forbid them, for such is the Kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God as a child will not enter into it.
And he took them in his arms, and he blessed, putting his hands on them.
