Today was really nice. We took Lexi to church and were part of a group of 4 parents taking part in the Baby Dedication ceremony. I was worried that I would cry as I usually do at events that really touch my heart but that was not much of a problem! Once we went to the pulpit and the preacher starting introducing the babies and their families, Lexi came alive! She really put on a show for the congregation. She wanted down and then started playing the "throw my stuffed animal down and you pick it up game". She waved at the choir. It was a short ceremony but seemed to last forever! We got a nice certificate and she got a pink bible from the church. It was really sweet. Afterwards we took her to the nursery and she played with Emma (the birthday girl from a few weeks ago). Then we went to eat with my parents and Sara and her family. Lexi was really great. She did well in the restaurant even though she was way off her schedule.
Honestly, this was the least stressful weekend we have had since we returned. It is a nice feeling. I got my Mother's Day present on Friday ... a Pajama Gram and it included a pair of pj's for Lexi that say "I love Mom" on them. She also got a toy puppy in a little dog house. She was pretty much unimpressed. LOL!
Today also begins a local contest called Cutest Kid Contest. I need all of our readers to go vote for Lexi! I have no idea what the prizes are but of course, we think we have the cutest kid... the hard part is she is in the same category with Brennen. It's all good though. It's fun.
