This past Sunday, Taylor was dedicated at church. I got Taylor all dolled up for the occasion. She wore tights and shoes for the first time! That bib had to stay on until she got through the actual dedication. I sure a major spit up or blow out would happen before everyone could see her in her pretty dress.
At our church we dedicate children instead of baptizing them. We dedicate them to a life of knowing and following Jesus. Once they are old enough to make their own decisions, they can chose to get baptized when they are ready.
Our pastor did an awesome job of incorporating our Green Beans into the service. It was so meaningful to us. We released four balloons in their memory. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the congregation. I know I was trying hard to fight back the tears. I never take for granted our little miracle baby that we now have in our arms.
After church, we all headed over to our house for a party! I had quite the spread prepared for our guests, complete with The Pioneer Woman’s Sangria (dangerous!), and her Corn Salad which was de-lish! To keep things simple, we ordered a bunch of sandwiches from Publix too. I decorated the house with pink flowers and pictures of Tay…
I also finally got around to framing a bunch of her newborn prints. I completed our “family” wall and put her picture next to the Green Bean’s shadow boxes that I made.
Anyway… back to the party!
Kelly & Allison are both expecting GIRLS in a couple months! Taylor is going to have lots of little girlfriends to play with soon. I can’t wait!
We so enjoyed having everyone there to celebrate Taylor’s special day! These were great memories that I look forward to sharing with Baby Tay.
