Lynae’s Dedication!

This morning at church we dedicated Lynae to the Lord and publicly committed ourselves to bring her up in a Christian home and to teach her of God’s love for her both in word and in deed.

Her gown is one that my grandmother made for me when I was about 6 or 7 weeks old (Lynae is now 7 1/2 weeks old).  I wore it for my infant baptism.  Brianna also wore this gown for her dedication (she was 5 months old and it was pretty big on her). 





Some of Lynae’s little friends were dedicated today too… You might remember that there were 5 church staff members all expecting at the same time?  Well, it just so happens that those are the 5 babies that were dedicated this morning :)  In birth order (right is the oldest, the perspective throws you off on this… I was standing at one end not above them, so the ‘biggest’ looking baby is in fact the smallest.  Ok, I take that back, he’s the youngest but he’s quite a bit bigger than Lynae! LOL  Right to left their birthdays are July, July, August, September, October :)  Too cute!   (a few had their ‘oops’ moments this morning and lost their dedication clothes before the photo… :) ).



  1. Adorable photos of Lynae and a lovely dress too! I guess it's a nice feeling to have your children wear the dress you had yourself!
    We did the same, using my old dress for our childrens' baptisms. Here boys and girls wear the same kind of long white dress (I really like the symbolism of it - too big at baptism, then at confirmation, age 15, a white gown correct size is worn, to show how you've grown into it - it of course being faith...), so they all got to wear my old one!

  2. What a neat day! I'm sorry we weren't there in church to see the dedication. :o(

    How special that you can keep handing the dress down. :o)

  3. It makes me so happy to see you wearing your 147 million orphans T shirt! I love mine and wear it all the time at the store. It is a great conversation starter.
