Our Baby Love 'aint no sinner no more. This past Sunday little Maddy Lou was baptized...and her momma was so proud!
It was an interesting day for me at least emotionally....I was more proud of Maddy at that point that I probably had ever been of her. More proud than when people met her for the first time, than when her belly button fell off, than when she smiled for the first time, than when she first rolled over. I was most proud of Maddy on this day and she didn't even know what was going on. And didn't choose to be baptized. But I was still so proud.
My mom made the most beautiful gown for Maddy out of my wedding dress...and ended up including satin from HER wedding dress, so Miss Maddy was wearing a most special and beautiful garment. If that's not the coolest thing you've ever heard than I don't know what is.
Of course, as luck would have it, Maddy was GREAT during church. A perfect little angel. And of course, when it was time to start the baptism she turned into a helliun. FUSSY. DEFIANT. CRANKY. SQUIRMY. TOTALLY EMBARASSING. And of course, we were "sharing" the baptism with a little boy who was adorable and was acting perfectly. Go figure.
HOWEVER....When it was time to be blessed and baptized, Madelyn calmed down as if she knew the moment had arrived and calmly and cutefully became a little Catholic girl. And this mommy's heart swelled and swelled and I was so happy to be holding her for her first sacrament.
We had a fun and great party at our house afterwards and I think Maddy had a good time too....especially when she sh*t EVERYWHERE and it exploded out of her pants, got ALL over the floor, all over Jason's shirt, and exploded all over his pants. Seriously, it was the biggest poop she had ever pooped in her life, and it was covering her grossed-out daddy more than she had ever covered us before. Hilarious. And in front of everyone. But seriously. And practically all who read this blog were there, so you know I'm not exaggerating =)
It was the perfect example of our little girl's attitude and humor. She is a nut, and I love her.
That's it for now...off to play with my 3 month old BFF =)
