Yesterday Hollyn was given a name and a blessing at church by Brian. It was so wonderful to have 3 of my sisters with their families, plus my parents and inlaws there to support us in this special event.
I spent weeks looking for a dress for little Hollyn – a special one that she could pass on to her own some day – but had a lot of trouble finding something in the right size. I finally settled on something online but it didn’t arrive in time. Before heading to the beach Saturday morning, I ran over to a local new/consignment kid shop and settled on a used dress in size 12m as a backup. Turns out I needed it, but as you can see in the pictures, she looks awfully sweet in it anyway and I’m very pleased with it. Plus, if Hollyn has a fatso baby of her own she can still pass it on .
