Daddy's late night sickness had Mommy a little worried (she said she's never seen him so sick), so she stayed home with him. You know, just in case he decided to pass out or something. Thankfully, he's feeling much better now!
Since one parent was sick and one was caretaking, I got to go to church with Auntie! This cutie sweater dress she gave me was just the thing for a cold weather Sunday (yes, I did wear a jacket).
Mommy was thrilled to finally put this big 'ol bow on me. She bought it even before I was born, so it's been hanging out in my room for well over a year. I'm not so into bows these days, though, so Mommy tries to distract me long enough to snap a picture.
One thing I am really into right now is mirrors. I love to check myself out...even if the dishwasher is the only reflection-producing thing around.
Mommy was really bummed that she missed baby dedications today. Baby dedication ceremonies always remind Mommy of the responsibility she and Daddy have to "train up a child in the way (s)he should go". Every day, Mommy asks God to help her and Daddy accomplish this task, and she so enjoys witnessing other parents make a public declaration of their desire to do the same.
And Mr. Ian with "Uncle" Oscar and "Aunt" Tara.
Last night, Oscar and Tara hosted a "Second-Born Blessing" ceremony at their home. It was very special! They asked second-born family members and friends to draw on their own life experiences to give a word of advice or speak a blessing over Ian. Ian's Aunt Tammy even sent a video message all the way from Ireland!
