Pippa is 7 months old
Pippa was baptized this Sunday at Church! It was a lovely ceremony. :) Loads of people came back to our house for lunch after, that was nice. We counted 42 - woah! Our little house was rammed, but it was very festive.
This is Pippa being held by a friend of the family. We don't have too many great photos of the event/baby, alas, so this is what you get! Thank you for the gown advice MHE! I decided to buy here gown online, but not quite so fancy (DH would have never gone for a really pricey gown). It was the Kayla gown. It was reasonably priced and made in the USA, I was very happy with it. It actually garnered a lot of compliments - and older English lady at church said it "made her day" to see a traditional gown! Hah! :)
I was SUPER excited the whole lead up to it. How many times have you sat in Church during a nice baptism and wanted it to be your baby? Loads. Me too. I couldn't believe it was finally our turn.
Pippa's Godmother will be her Aunt (DH's oldest sister). No Godfather, as she's not married. We're sort of all about family being the godparents - well, until we run out of Aunts. ;) My own Godparents are friends of my parents. My Mom and the one Godmother fell out when I was a baby, so I've never met her. Lame. And the other ones we were all in touch (they have a girl about my age) until I was maybe.... 9ish? Then they divorced and scattered and I never really saw them again. Lame. You can never divorce your Aunties, so our theory is they will always be in Pippa's life. :)
Since both of DH's sisters don't have children, we kind of are having the kids for them, they are very involved. That's good. I likes. :) It's very good for Pippa to have lots of Aunties. I have lots of Aunties (like, I have...10?), and I think it has benefited me.
