It was important to us that Adam’s Dad, Michael, be the one to do Lainey’s dedication so a trip to Mississippi was planned! She did awesome on her first trip, of course. She even continued to sleep through the night there which was great (she has slept through the night (7-10 hours) since she was 5 weeks old!).
Her dedication was done the last Sunday in March at their church and was wonderful.
The gown Lainey wore is a family gown from my side of the family that my Mother and all eight of her siblings were baptized in. Almost 70 years old, a Feltman Brothers gown, it has been repaired by hand in several places in the back. Lainey spit up a small amount on it while wearing it. While I hand-washed it once we were home, I imagined my Nana doing the very same thing nine times before me years ago. Wow!
Our Lainey girl met so many more family members, including her great grandfathers! This is precious to me as I never met any of my great grandparents.
This little gal is so loved by her family! We hope to make a trip to Florida this fall for her to meet the rest of my family next!
