Emma's Baptism | Emma's Heirloom Christening Gown & Handmade Slippers | Quality Time with her Dad




Emma was baptized a couple of weeks ago at my family's church back home.  After what seemed like a whirlwind of a morning (yes... these days getting everyone ready for church and brunch is our definition of whirlwind - my how things of changed!) we returned back to my parents' house exhausted.  Just as we were getting ready to change Emma into something more comfy to wear for the afternoon, I realized I hadn't gotten any photos of her - just her by herself in her pretty outfit. 

Yes, I had gotten groups of family members holding her, us standing at the alter, closeups of the cinnamon rolls and whoopie pies, but somehow I forgot to take photos of her.  Humph.  Here is a series of shots I captured of the newly baptized baby laughing at her Dad.  This is the good stuff.  If I were tweeting this it'd have a tag like #InbetweenTheBigMoments.








This dress was made by my Grandma's sister, Erma for my Dad's Baptism 50+ (wink, wink...) years ago.  My sister, her daughter Sam and I wore it also. 


I love the hem lace detail on the bottom - so delicate and elegant.  These booties were made by one of Mike's Mom's friends.  They are amazing.

  3. Jenny, I love your blog and check it everyday. I want to tell you, I had some beautiful babies. I know a beautiful baby when I see one and that little Emma is a BEAUTIFUL baby! I always dressed my babies (boys and girl!) in sweet smocked and heirloom clothes. I taught smocking and french handsewing for years and love to see a baby dressed that way! I kept my babies in pastels for the first year and all white for the first 6 months. I bet her closet is full a beautiful things! now I own a monogramming business but they are too big for all of it! Congratulations to your family. God is good!
