It was Baby Dedication Day today at our church. In most Baptist churches, it is a very simple, but meaningful ceremony. The parents promise to raise their children in a Christian home and provide guidance by keeping them in a loving, supportive church home. The church commits to helping the parents raise the child by supporting the parents and providing Christian guidance to the child. We were very lucky to have most of our family join us for the service this morning. It was a very special time as we prayed for God to guide Hudson through every step of his life.
We decided to have Hudson just sit with us during the service instead of sending him to the nursery and he did very well! Right at the very end he finally got sick of sitting there and Rusty took him out. Despite a very nasty cold and teething, he did great!
After the service and a small photo shoot in the lobby, we headed to our house for some food and fellowship! It's not very often that both sides of our family get together. We had a great time catching up and of course spoiling Hudson with lots of hugs and kisses!
Hudson finally went down for a nap about 2:30. Shortly after everyone left, Rusty and I crashed as well. We all woke up just in time for the Super Bowl! It was a great Sunday and I look forward to giving Hudson his letter from our Pastor the day he accepts Jesus into his heart!
