what a blessing

We had Lily's special day on Labor Day weekend.
We had originally planned to have it in October.
But, we wanted to have better odds of good weather.
We knew we would most likely be missing some of our guests.
Especially since we changed the day about a week before.

Poor thing had to get all gussied up.
She was a beautiful little angel.
I will admit that I am one of those moms that likes to doll up the babes, on occasion.

She was graced with gifts from so many who love her.
Grandma Carol made her the lovely blanket.
Aunt Kami provided her pretty hairband, on late notice-she duh bomb!

Her darling wristband was inspired by a gift Aunt Katie had given Bayli on her blessing day. It is one of those sentimental things that brings me to tears when I read the poem that goes along with it. In an nutshell, she wears it when she is blessed, baptized, and on her wedding day.
I made it the week before. Trust me, I would have purchased it if I had found one.

I found her dress at JoLene's . (Funny to think that I worked there in High School. That is most likely where I began my love for dolling up the babes.)

I wanted a short dress, like Bayli's, but with lace.
I fell in love with the row of roses on the waist.

I love her little bare feet peeking out!

Such a beautiful baby!Lily and her mommy.

Lily and her daddy.
He gave her a wonderful blessing.

Some of the wonderful people in her life that attended the special day.
Unfortunately Lily's mommy gets chatty and forgets to take pictures of ALL of the guests.
Including, Grandpa's, Great Gandma's, big sister (how'd we miss that one?), and cousins.

Aunt Chalese, who shares mommies love for dolling up the babes, had fun taking pictures of Lily-who wouldn't! Tiny little wings.

Sweet little smile.

My favorite...Our little Pixie!
