Your Christening

Today, Daddy and I had you Baptized. You were welcomed into the Catholic church in front of all of your family and friends. Mimi & Pop spent the night and we all woke up bright and early. We had breakfast and coffee and then we got dressed. You really did not like getting into your beautiful white gown, but you were so gorgeous. Mimi bought you a sweater that was for a 1 year old. You were swimming in it but it was possibly the cutest thing ever. I put your in your car seat and off we went to the church. You fell asleep on the way, as usual. We got tothe church, the first family there, and the ceremony began. The deacon spoke beautifully and you were quiet/sleeping the entire time. Until it was time for you to be baptized in the fountain. You did not like the holy water over your head at all. It sent you into a crying fit that Daddy & I could not get you out of. So after the holy water, we were to stand up on the altar with your Godparents, Tia B and Uncle Scotty, while the others were being baptized. You SCREAMED the entire time. Not a fuss, not a whimper...screaming. Odly enough, the moment the deacon was done with mass, you stopped.

Afterwards when we got home, and your belly was full, you were the celebrity of the party. Everyone kept saying how gorgeous you were (they always do). Puppa called you her celebrity all day. You were really good for the rest of the afternoon, really allowing everyone to pass you around and stare at you. You are so beautiful my little angel!

One Month

Dear Lilly,

Today you are one month old.

"You are the best thing that's ever been mine"

This past month has been an amazing combination of smiles, tears, sleepless nights and a few of the best moments of my life. You have gone from this pudgy faced peanut who slept all day, to this mini person who smiles up at me. I really enjoy your company. I love how hard you make me work to see you smile. The time we spend cuddling throughout the day is absolutely priceless because I know it wont last forever. The way your little hand has been grasping around my one finger bring tears of happiness to my eyes. More and more when I look at you, I realize how much you look just like I did when I was that little. It makes me so proud to have someone so special remind me of myself.

I don't know if I will ever be able to love someone as much as I love you. You have completely stolen my heart, and I am more than willing to let you keep it forever.
