The Start of a Tradition

     Because I had three boys, I was absolutely convinced I would not have a baby girl.  But, by the grace of God, we were blessed with Adley Rose this past October.  I’m so thrilled to create memories with my baby girl and to hopefully start some traditions that will carry on to her children. Last Sunday was hopefully the start of a new tradition….
Adley was dedicated to the Lord wearing the same gown that I wore 33 years ago.  The gown was handmade  by my talented God Mother, Deb Heath, and had been hiding in my mother’s closet for this wonderful moment! If the Lord chooses to bless Adley one day with a daughter, I’m hoping she will want to carry on this tradition and have her wear it as well.  And I’m praying that one day, when I am long gone, my dress will still be worn by my beautiful great, great, great grandchildren at their dedication.

Here I am, slouched ever so wonderfully in my Grandma Webster’s couch
 and….here is Adley in my gown and bonnet (and gold ring I wore as well)…
isn’t she precious?! ….or is it just my mommy goggles?!

 My God mother put so much detail into the dress…so talented!
