New Little White Soul

All tired out after her baptism, little Polly slept soundly in her daddy's arms this past Sunday. Due to an uncommon foresight and sporadic burst of organization, her mother managed to find the family baptismal gown (which I wore for my own baptism), and have it cleaned and ready. Polly is the first of my children to ever wear the gown, which is silk with a chiffon overlay trimmed with two ribbon bows and tiny smocked pleats - simple yet so much nicer than anything I could make or buy today. And I am so grateful to the aunt who bequeathed it to me years ago, and to my guardian angel who helped me remember that I had it!

Congratulations, Polly!

In our own baptismal news, I just realized that my husband will be baptized exactly four years and one month after the baptism of our three daughters. :)

By the by, I've been enjoying a new (to me) blog, Lentils and Rice and I think you'd like it. Although she's a determined declutterer, and you are more of a determined cozy hobbit hole sort of person (which is a compliment, if that's not clear), she has some anti-plastic, anti-junk ideas that you'd probably like. Anyhow, here's the link:

My mom finally pulled out two boxes of my baby toys to hand down to me--now that I have my fourth child! Parents and their basements!
