Ashley~

There are only like 2 pictures of Vivian's baptism on FB. How was she, and didn't you have a party after or something? (I think I remember you mentioning). Details! And pictures! Smile

It was good! Vivian was perfect all day! The water over her head didn't bother her at all. She really never cries unless she's hungry so she was perfect! The pastor told us we could bring siblings up with us...so Miles went up with us. He was another story. He was quiet, but was up and down off the floor (in front of the whole church congregation). Up, down. Up, down. WAY not like him. Atleast he was quiet, lol. We had everybody (her godparents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles) over to our house for lunch right after the service. We served ham, scalloped potatoes, corn, dinner rolls, a fruit salad, cake, and punch. One of Vivian's gifts was a birthstone ring, it is so sweet! I'm supposed to go resize it but I'm going to wait a bit. She also received a pearl bracelet with a cross on it, and some money for her savings account.

Her dress. I still have this hanging in her room like this because I just love it!

Sorry if this one is so HUGE - I took it off my fb.

Dang it, dang it, dang it, I can't see the pics. But the birthstone ring...is it for her to wear or you? (probably a dumb question, but I've never seen a baby wear a ring?)

It is for her, it has her birthstone. I have seen babies wear rings, but really only for photos. I had one when I was little, I have no idea where it is now! I don't think they just wear them everyday. I could be wrong though, but that seems like a hassle (and just not safe because their fingers grow so fast, choking hazard, etc.). So I'm planning to wait -- a few years -- for her to wear it.

How sweet! Her dress is just adorable! Where did you get it?
How sweet about the ring! I had a ring when I was a baby too and I have it in my jewelery box and had thought about putting it on the girls for their baptism but I totally forgot!
My mom got Alyssa a beaded bracelet for her baptism but Lauren's wrist was too chubby to wear it! lol! And Lauren was baptized like 5 weeks younger age wise than Alyssa!

She is just adorable! I love see pics of her!

Beautiful dress!!! I'd display it like that too if I was you.

Oh and I have a ring too from when I was a baby. My mom just gave it to me actually for Kara. I didn't know she still had it.
