All of our girls have been baptized around 5-6 months. Frantically, last month, I realized I needed to get it on the books, coordinate it and get all of the family here. With various health issues and conditions going on, we weren’t sure who would be able to make it. Fortunately, my mom and Mr. Serious’ parents made the trip over for the weekend to see our fourth little girl baptized in the church.
Forgetting to turn the flash on for my mom, the pictures from the actual baptism are blurry. But, I can’t help but love this one, still. You can see all of us, and the oldest is just so happy looking over at daddy and her sisters. It makes my heart smile.
Of course, the pastor couldn’t get through the introductions without a comment about our four girls and hoping that Mr. Serious had a boy dog at home. No such luck. But, he ended that part by reminding us how blessed we are! We couldn’t agree more.
B did great. No fussing. Smiling at everybody and just being cute. E was a hoot and ended the baptism by telling our pastor “happy birthday” and then yelling “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” when she thought she was being ignored. It’s a good thing everybody says how cute she is.
(I always feel like we need to keep the girls quiet during a service when they come into the sanctuary. We had them all in the service for the baptism. Afterwards, an older couple came up to Mr. Serious and told him that we didn’t need to worry about the noise our girls were making. After all, “they are the future of our church!” I wanted to squeeze them and hug them!)
We tried to get a family picture after the service. And, well, we just went with the best we could get.
(Another side note, my mom decided to let the girls convince her to flat iron their hair for the service. When they came in with their beautiful girls all straightened out, I was very sad. I love their curls and I want them to as well!)
Mr. Serious wore the same suit for all four girls (but he interchanged the tie a couple times).
Family of 6 picture? Well, 5/6 isn’t bad to be looking, right? My sweet B wore the same gown that her sisters wore and that my cousin and guardian angel wore.
She fell asleep on the way home and even slept through a car to house transfer. When she woke up, she was super happy and definitely needed a picture in her gown one more time.
Did you capture your Mommy and Me this week?
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love. Please spread the love! And, I never mind the comments, either:)
