Stella Cate's Baptism

Stella Cate was baptized on March 28th at First United Methodist Church in Florence, AL. This is my church at home where Gere and I married. It was a very special day. She was so sweet in her beautiful christening gown (which I love!!!) and did not make a peep during the entire service. Our families and some very close friends came to share in the occasion. The service was very sweet and I could not help but cry during her baptism. The little children had a song to sing to her at the end. God has certainly blessed us with such a precious little girl.

Stella was surrounded by special people that love her. She was so so peaceful that day like she knew what it was all about. I really felt my mom's presence during the ceremony and I cannot begin to express my love for this little girl. I am very excited bc/I know that the lord has wonderful things planned for her.

I'm attaching the few pics I have and then I will add the pictures of her in her gown that the Jeanelle took when I place my order. I've seen the proofs and they are so so beautiful!

The Gown

Stella Cate's Christening gown. She was so so beautiful in her gown.

Sweet bonnet.

Beauty pin engraved with Stella Cate's name. I hope I will have other babies with their own engraved pins as keepsakes.

Stella Cate's Name and birthday hand embroidered on the slip. Each baby baptized in this gown will have their name and birthday added to the slip. So special

The slip and bloomers

Stella Cate's monogram hand embroidered on the bloomers. I love, love, love these bloomers. SC wears them with her dressy dresses.
