This is my baby girl and we finally had her baptized last weekend after waiting a whole year. We have been blessed enough to have finally found a church that feels like ‘home’ after a very long search. We had put off Shay’s baptism until my father-in-laws health had returned, as he has been struggling with some up’s and down’s of the long term effects of Diabetes.
He was doing great and so we scheduled the baptism. On the snowy morning of the baptism we found out that he had been admitted to the hospital that very morning for a possible heart attack. Then we were told that they would be putting a pacemaker in. We prayed for him along with our entire congregation and miraculously all they had to do was take him off of a particular medication he was on to make a world of difference.
He is home now and doing so much better. We are really looking forward to going to visit this Thanksgiving. We have SO much to be thankful for!
Here are some portraits of my sweet Shay in her baptism gown. It was very difficult finding a gown, that was within my price range for a 1 yr old. I was lucky enough, however, that my obsession with looking around on the Etsy website paid off. There is a wonderful group of women that have a store called “4 Crazy Ladies” and they made this BEAUTIFUL layette for Shay.
I didn’t get any snaps the day of the baptism because of the craziness of the day, but I made a point to give her, her own mini photo shoot.
