Baptism

There is a lot of mixed opinions on baptisms (sometimes called christenings), For me personally it's important that Emily is baptized, it's a chance to welcome her into the church, and say thank you for having her. I don't attend church every week, and by no means would I preach my religion to other people. In my mind and the way that I was brought up, religion is a personal thing, something you don't need to broadcast or tell everyone about. It was always my intention to get my child baptized, even though Sam wasn't baptized and isn't religious, he knows how important it is to me. 

Recently I've been feeling a bit down in the dumps, and many things have been going more wrong the right. Yesterday I spoke to the vicar at my church, and he agreed to baptize Emily. I'm so glad that it is him that is baptizing her. More of a sentimental thing than anything else, The vicar baptized me, and my brothers, he was also the one who married my mum and dad. Then to top it of, my Nanna said I could lone the dress I wore for my christening. I know it may not be to everyone's taste but to me it is the most special and gorgeous dress I could hope for my daughter to wear. As I have said, I wore the dress, but so did my Aunt, and my cousin, and my Nanna wore it herself too. So it is a very loved and family air loom if you like. I put two pictures on here, just so you can see how gorgeous it actually is. I love the lace detail.





Emily also has a second little dress, because I don't want her to ruin this one, and be sick on it. I purchased her a little pink butterfly one from next. You can find it here. I think it will be nice to be able to change her into her other one for the party after. The picture on the next website, really doesn't do it justice. 


These were the invitations I handmade. I used 4 different colours just to mix it up a little bit. I'm so chuffed with them and think that they came out lovely, I just couldn't resist showing you them. Her christening is this Sunday coming. I'm sure ill be blogging about it again at some point. 


What are your opinions on baptism's? Did you get your child baptized?

  1. We haven't yet managed to sort out a christening date, but we want to. I absolutely love the history and style of the gown. Unfortunately by the time my son gets christened I don't think I'll be able to use a gown on him! :(
