If you know me personally then you know what a sentimental person I am! Three weeks ago my daughter was baptized and it was such a special day! There were so many things that made it special though! Obviously that she was becoming a child of god and gaining two special god parents but also that she was
Baptized in the same church and font that I was baptized in.
Baptized in the same church and font that her brother Luke was baptized in.
Baptized by Father David who also married my husband and I.
But the one I was REALLY excited about… She wore a baptism gown made from my wedding dress! I had never seen this done before and couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate such an important day in her life by wearing a dress from such an important day in OUR lives!

My friend Carried referred me to an adorable seamstress who works from her home in Cary (Kim Cash! I highly recommend her email me if you need her information) We met twice and I explained as much as I could what I was looking for! I admit I was a little nervous about it but it turned out AMAZING!! I could not be happier! I also had two bows made (a headband for Sloan and a clip for Kate!) and a play purse for the girls! Everything even the buttons and the tags came from my dress! The headband was the tie from the back of the dress! I loved it and it is certainly better then having it cleaned and letting it rot in my closet! How many moms in this decade can say they have seen their daughter in their wedding dress?!! I can!! I hope it becomes a family dress for all the baby girls in our family!
