Despite a frantic first-bath (which Moses HATED. I wonder if it had to do with the frantic scrubbing of a Mama simultaneously barking out orders to all corners of the house... nah. Probably not.) on a harried first-time-getting-everyone-out-the-door rush to get to church, it was a pretty great day.
Moses even had a gaggle of silly geese waiting on the doorstep of our church for a first view. (I love the people in our church!)
Not the last "Doh!" face we'll ever get with him, I bet.
Better than the lilies~ A note on the clothes. Three days before Moses arrived, still great with child, I waddled to a nearby antique barns/flea market where I have, in the past, scored some awesome vintage clothing for pennies. I was on the lookout for a baptismal outfit for Cricket since I have one for each of the children to take with them for their own children someday(all bought at yard sales, mind you.) I didn't find one but I *DID* find the gorgeous dress that Ineke is wearing for a measly $5.00!
It comes with a petticoat, people!
Even better, on the way home, there was a yard sale that had....wait for it.........a perfectly wonderful baptismal outfit for a boy for another $5.00!
Little ways that reveal the Lord knows and cares even about the small details of our hearts. Even the unspoken ones. Even the superfluous ones that don't matter like set-apart clothes worn on a set-apart day.
And one more note:
I should be either proud or worried of the obvious delight this girl shows, even in the midst of screaming baby. I can't decide which...
