Henderson's Baby Dedication




Henderson's Baby Dedication was nearly 2 weeks ago and I am just now getting some pictures back to post. It was a wonderful time of family gathering to dedicate the babies to Jesus. It was not a baptism or a christening, simply a dedication by the immediate family and church family to raise and support and encourage him in the ways of Jesus. It was very special for us, as has been for all 3 of my children, to be dedicated alongside his cousin, Stanton, who is only 2 weeks younger than him. Emma Claire and Patton were dedicated on the same day, in the same gowns (the same gowns as their siblings, not each other!!!), Wilson and Mills the same and now Henderson and Stanton. The other 2 dedications were done when the babies were about 3 or 4 months old. But the last dedication at our church was held the Sunday after the Alabama/Georgia game, and all the men were out of town at the game, so we held off until the next one, which in my opinion was easier, b/c the babies were a little more scheduled and predictable at 8 months than they were at 3 months!



Henderson didn't sit still for long, he was doing his best to crawl away in this long, silk gown!

Henderson and Stanton - another benefit to waiting until 8 months - they can both sit by them selves!

First of all, thanks for the comment. If your mom doesn't get that excited, she SHOULD!!! She is one of my greatest joys in life. I feel so blessed!

Now, on to your three. Those children, and their outfits, are PRECIOUS!! And I LOVED the outfits of the nieces/nephews too! (Something about smocked and monogram calls my name)!

My daughter just got a monogram machine. Her husband is afraid his boxers are next!

Kellie - I'm just now catching up on blogs and I LOVE the new photo! I also love how you explained what a baby dedication is! Wow, those photos are beautiful.

I was scrolling down through the past few weeks and I laughed so hard at the photo of Will in the pantry. 1). That looks similar to our panty and 2). That looks similar to my kid climbing in our pantry. Hopefully he won't sneak food and hide it like Hudson did. You can do a search on my blog for "hudson the handful" to see the destruction you're in for if you don't get a lock - now!

Have a great week!

P.S. The comment from new mom in law was great. Monogrammed boxers! So funny. Gotta love those initials.

I got two cute towels I need to post. One is from Hinge and the other is from Bumble Tees - it's a kitchen towel and I don't think it's up on their site yet. Super adorable though. You'd appreciate them.
