We had a really nice day today. Weather was perfect for having a bunch of people over as it meant the kids could get outside to play and not have to be cooped up in the house all day. Kearsyn was wonderful during the service...she didn't make a peep, not even when the water was poured over her head although it did cause her to jump. I sometimes wonder how wise it is to dress a little baby up in a long satin dress for this event. Babies are hard enough to hold onto in regular clothes because they are so boneless but put them in a long satin dress and they become as slippery as an eel. Thankfully we made it through the ceremony without dropping her. ;) LOL It was really nice having family and friends over...some of whom we don't get to see very often....and it wasn't as chaotic as I imagined it would be. The only downside to the day was that Kearsyn's Godparents couldn't make it back to our house after the ceremony but I know we'll see them again soon.
Kearsyn got some lovely gifts. From family and friends she got: a beautiful personalized crystal cross (I'll have to take a picture of it and post it), a first tooth lost keepsake box, a first curl keepsake container, a linen keepsake bonnet that can be used again on her wedding day, a plush bear that is soooo soft, baby einstein toys, diapers, wipes, socks, baby wash and some money. From us, she got an engraved Catholic Children's Bible. We usually get a crucifix to go over the bed but for some reason we forgot this time. Andy's mom says she has one that was her mom and dad's so she'll give us that one. It's always nice to have something that was in the family.
