I had so much fun dressing Lily up. This was my old "poncho" and hat that someone crocheted when for me when I was a baby. The hat barely fit her. Jessica was just thrilled to dress her up again and again.
Here is Lily and I at her baby dedication. Again, Jessica picked out the dress! We both think she looks adorable in it. She was so good during her dedication. I will post more pictures of it later. I wanted to sing her "A Mother's Prayer" by Serene and Pearl, but I got scared when I woke up in the middle of the night with a very sore throat. I kept praying and gargling and somehow God helped me through it. I was able to sing to my Little Lily. It was very emotional for me, but I managed to keep it mostly together. The dedication was very special because Pastor Steve was able to do it. I know he was in pain, but was relying on God's strength to get him through. I so appreciate him! He has been battling cancer for over a year now.
After the dedication, I invited family and friends to our house for a soup/salad/rolls. It was so nice to be able to relax and talk with everyone instead of going to a restaurant where we can't hear each other and the children go crazy! It was pleasant and I appreciate all who were able to make it. Thank you!
