“Let the little children come to me…”

In family, look what I can do!, sewing on 20112011-11-20T20:55:54+00:0030 9/11 at 20:55

“And [Jesus] took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:16

Today our son was dedicated to the Lord at Calvary Temple in Brandon. His spirit was joyful and the decision was easy. Special friends were in attendance and we are delighted to be parents to our little son. Our commitment to train up our boy in the way he should go, so that when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6), has now been witnessed by our brothers and sisters at church, and in life. We do not take this task lightly.

Here are some photos from the day. Unfortunately, only one from the actual dedication turned out (somewhat) on my silly camera.

Getting ready to go

Happy boy

Our one half-decent shot of the dedication. Note to self - must buy GOOD camera

Happy to move around

Thanks for a great day, friends!

As you can see, this suit is quite…tailored (yeah, that’s it). The bottom snap kept popping open. Next time I make him a vest, I’ll leave more room for him to move around. And grow. Cuz that’s what babies do. I guess this ensemble will go straight into his baby box. But it was still worth it for the significance of the day.
