But I did it! We're all so proud of me!
We had Maggie baptized at our church last Sunday, July 22. It ALSO happened to be my birthday. DOUBLE CELEBRATION!
She behaved EXTREMELY well, and was UNBELIEVABLY cute in her little frilly white outfit.
We had a baptism/birthday party at our house afterwards. My whole family came down, David's dad, and some close friends from church. Of course, I failed to take pictures of the party. Let's not even act suprised. This is my M.O. now.
I was so antsy about getting there on time that we got there almost half an hour early. Probably the only time in my life I've suceeded at not being just a SMIDGEN late to something, so we decided to make the most of the extra time by asking Frank to take family pictures for us! You know, since we were all dressed up so pretty. And early. This confluence of events will probably never again occur in this lifetime.
And then, of course, we had to try to grab a few shots of the Baby Girl of the Day:
HOW DID SHE GET THAT CUTE?!?!? Maggie will be wearing white frilly outfits and giant pink headbands every day for the rest of her life, End Of Discussion.
Also, Henry wants everyone to know that he wore suspenders.
And despite the fact that they were just a BIT too small, and so yanked his pants up a SMIDGEN too high and gave him a LITTLE wedgie, he loved them and could not be talked out of wearing them. And he looks so dapper in them! Well, at least, his top half does. The bottom half was a bit unsightly, what with the perpetual wedgie and all.
There! I did it! Maggie's Bapism post, out of the drafts folder! Huzzah!
I wish I could say that I'll get back to the normal posting schedule after this, but we leave tomorrow for A WEEK OF VACATION, HOLLA! There's a slight chance I'll post a few pics while we're gone, but it's much more likely that there will be a week of blog silence while I bask lazily in sunshine and read book upon book while enjoying tasty drinks with umbrellas in them.
Ha! Just kidding! I'll be smearing sunscreen on wiggly babies and chasing drown-happy toddlers down the riverbank while chugging ice water to keep the dehydration at bay.
And I plan to enjoy every second of it.
