What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Such a cute photo - I have one where my daughter (19) is holding our youngest and kissing him - his face is similar :) looks like he's saying "alright already enough!"

My momma, when we were getting ready for church (i'm the second oldest, i actually got another sibling after i was married off ;) ) would often tell me or dad "get a washcloth, wash {insert babies name, it happened with all the babies}'s neck, and put some lotion on him", because, inevitably, some lady was gonna be sniffin that baby's neck!

I told my husband the same thing when our baby was young. "Make sure his neck is all clean - here's the lotion!" he asked why it was so urgent, and i told him it was because everyone was gonna be smelling his neck.
He was unsure whether this was necessary, but when a new momma is getting ready to take her baby to church for the first time, by golly you do what she says!
so he did. And sure enough, although our church is quite small, many, many people breathed in deep that baby smell and said 'i love the smell of babies!'.
(and then i graciously whispered in my husband's ear: "i told you so!").
People don't seem to like the smell of babies so well when they just smell like sour milk ;)
