Sophie's Christening

Today you were Christened. It was such a big day for you, apart from a small hiccup you were the same little angel that we have grown to love.

You wore the same dress your Great Aunty Trudy wore and you were Christened in the same church that your Grandpa was Christened in.

You looked BEAUTIFUL.

You had gorgeous tights on and the tiniest of shoes with a hint of sparkle. Mummy found a headband which matched perfectly just days prior and when it all came together I couldn’t believe that you were the same little baby that I gave birth to just four months ago. Your personality evolves each in and every day, your Daddy and I have so much fun with you, we both would like you to slow down the pace in which you are growing though.

You received some beautiful presents today, you were utterly spoilt. The most beautiful white gold cross to treasure forever from Grandma, Grandpa, Aunty Claire & Uncle Ronan and you beat Mummy to owning a little blue box, Aunty Katie, Uncle Darien, Lilli, Annabelle & Thomas gave you a gorgeous Tiffany’s necklace, another piece which will be treasured for a lifetime.

You had the most devine cake. Mummy's friend made it who also made my baby shower cake.

There were five other children being baptised today, it was slightly mayhem inside the church, you decided that you were hungry half an hour earlier than normal and proceeded to scream, cry and scream some more. Nothing I could do would settle you; I ended up feeding you whilst standing at the altar. We think you may be starting your teething journey; you have been so unsettled ever since your 4 month needles on Monday and teething I think may be adding to your unsettledness.

Thank you for being the most amazing part of my life. I think about how lucky I am each and every day. I hope you had a wonderful day.


  1. You have a beautiful little girl - but looks like you most definitely know that already. Her dress is beautiful and that cake!

  2. Oh your little lady is just beautiful! What precious memories to record for her to one day look back on. Looks like it was a delightful event... love the cake... and the family photo is gorgeous xo
