Last night we had Katelyn’s Baby Dedication at Mariner’s Church. Kyle and I felt blessed to have been joined by our family and many of our closest in pray as we dedicated Katelyn to her Papa God. It is so important to Kyle and I that we raise Katelyn knowing that her God loves her with all His heart and will love her and protect her always. We want her to seek God always and make wise choices with her life. Kyle and I picked a Bible verse for her that we hope she will always keep close to her heart:
“Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
After the service all our family and friends headed down to Kyle’s parents house in Corona del Mar for a “Sundae Celebration.” We thought that Sundaes were a great idea because it would be passed dinner time after the service. It was so great to catch up with everyone and hear what God is doing in their lives. Plus everyone got a kick out of watching “Katelyn’s crawl.” That’s what we call the worm-like movement she does. It’s too funny. As always Katelyn loves to be the life of the party and it was only after the last of our guests left at 12:45 a.m., that she passed out in the car on the way home. Needless to say we all took long naps today. Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to the dedication, it meant so much to us!!
My Mom was able to get a great deal on a Jet Blue and flew out for the weekend to be here for Katelyn’s dedication. She came in on Thursday night and left this morning. We had so much fun having a mommy, daughter and grand-daughter shopping day on Friday and even found some cute new outfits. Katelyn had so much fun cuddling with her grandma.
