Sunday November 13, 2011 was a very special day for our family. We dedicated our 3 sweet baby boys to the Lord at church. As the verse says above:
- and she said to him, “Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.” And he worshiped the LORD there. 1 Samuel 1:26-28 NIV
If you have read my story you know that getting pregnant has never been easy for my husband and I. So I feel tremendously blessed to have four beautiful healthy happy boys that the Lord has blessed me with. William & I wanted to dedicate our three latest blessings to the Lord. I feel so blessed that he would trust me with not one but three new baby boys.
As with any special occasion the attire is very important! When Willie was dedicated he wore William’s dedication outfit.
So since he had such a special outfit I wanted the boys to have their own special outfit. I decided to make their outfits. Knowing my limits I ordered them each the shirt to wear underneath which, my M-I-L got for the boys along with sweet little socks with crosses on them , and a beautiful blanket with their name and dedication date on it. I was a little nervous but I am so glad that I made them because I LOVE them and the boys looked precious in them.
(I know it looks like Drake’s pant legs are two different lengths it is because I had rolled them under when I put it on Drake and one leg came unrolled. )
Anyway, I wanted the boys to have to option to use their outfits for their sons, but I wanted to monogram them so I decided to make them little bibs.
Since there were three babies all three pastors participated in the dedication ceremony.
It was such a sweet service. Afterwards we headed back to our house for a celebration lunch. All in all I think everyone had a wonderful time.
Here a few pics from the day:
I am so glad that the day went so smoothly and we got to share this special occasion with our wonderful family!
