My baby girl got baptized yesterday! It was really one of the most favorite days of my life. I didn’t realize how emotional I would be during the service, and when I held her to officially be baptized my heart was so full of joy and love that I could have burst. She looked so beautiful. Exhibit A:
She took a nap before the service began and she just looked like such an angel. My mom bought her dress, but she wore the hat that I wore at my baptism, and then her hat and shoes were adorned with beads that came from my mother’s wedding gown and veil. She wore my grandpa’s angel pin on her dress as well, and it was a special way of him being there with us. It was our first family event without him and I could really feel the loss. I know he was watching us and was with us all day, but we missed him, plain and simple.
My brother is Charlotte’s godfather and he loves her so much! My cousin Brianne is her godmother. She was my matron of honor at my wedding and is my very best friend. Her son is 4 months old and he was there while we got Charlotte dressed. Jack was just hanging out on the bed minding his own business while Charlotte did this:
In her defense this was really the only time she cried like this the entire day, but it’s so funny that she never fails to scream whenever we are doing something nice. SHE HATES ALL OF THE NICE THINGS.
We had a small luncheon afterwards with family and friends and it was just such a good day. Charlotte has so many people that love her. She is one lucky little girl. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with our little munchkin and for all of you who offered congratulations. It was a big day for all of us and we appreciate it! I love this child so much that sometimes I honestly think I could explode.
