Our hearts are very full today.
You were baptized just after 9 this morning, and everyone was there to see you.
You wore the same gown your mother wore 29 years ago (a gift from your great-grandmother, Betty) and the same cross necklace, a gift from Auntie Joyce.
So many connections. So many memories. A few tears. (Maybe a few more than a few.)
Auntie Joyce hand smocked the bonnet (crazy detail. hours of work. so precious) for your mother's baptism.
Bonnets are not particularly nap-friendly, so it was tucked away.
You pretty much snoozed through the entire service.
Many friends came to welcome you.
Big brother observed you had forgotten to say "Cheese!" in the many photographs I was taking, so here he is showing you how to do it.
Brothers are really great for stuff like that.
How blessed we are to have shared this day with you.
Sweet dreams, darling girl.
