This Sunday we had Dotty dedicated. Dedicating your child is similar to baptism or christening. We are declaring our intent to raise her knowing Jesus. This was made even more special because our pastor, who is also one of our nearest and dearest friends, dedicated her. It was his families last Sunday at our church as they are moving this summer. Bittersweet.
I had a hard time choosing what she should wear. Our church is very casual -plus we had a BBQ to attend that afternoon. In the end I couldn't resist traditional. Anyone who knows me would wonder why I even bothered considering something else. I have a handful or two of christening gowns so I had to sort through those. I am pretty sure the one she wore was the one I wore as a baby being dedicated. She is 8 mos. and the bonnets were all too small, finally I found one to fit.
I love the photo of me holding her in her slip. I'll leave you with a picture from the BBQ where we changed her into a white sun suit. I also love this picture of Mav.
Also one of top runner up outfits.
