January 5th Was Ella's baptism and Maxwell's blessing. Earlier in the year I had volunteered to make Ella a dress and do the blessing outfit. It came fast right after Christmas. But all turned out well.
Ella is the first of three baptisms this year, I can't believe they are all getting so grownup.
She wanted the dress pink and I found this pretty fabric several months ago and knew it would be perfect. She looked so pretty.
My smocking teacher suggested this fun pattern, I love the nautical look. I found the waffle type fabric as a scrap on a sale table and so glad I picked it up long ago. It made the outfit turn out like I wanted it to.
Maxwell is such a fun baby, he loves his Mom. By mid week after the blessing he was in the hospital with RSV, but now is all better. So fun to have a baby around.
