Babies, babies, everywhere….

So, yesterday was Father’s Day.

Techy’s first real Father’s day as a matter of fact.

Yesterday was also special because it was Baby Dedication Day at church.

It’s an exciting/daunting time for all of us knew parents.

We take vows in front of our whole church that we will raise our child up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord”. Then the church as a whole takes a vow to help us raise our children in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord”, and then each child is prayed over.

The ceremony, in and of itself, is beautiful. The idea that as parents, we are essentually vowing to the God of Heaven that we will do everything in our power to make sure that our children know and serve him is not something to be taken lightly.

I assume you know me well enough to know that it was everything I could do to hold back the tears the entire time.

Lucky for me, babies know nothing of religious traditions or sanctity and these kids decided to provide a little {adorable} comedic entertainment.
Here's how it went down...

Little Man: Wow...bright lights. All those people....

Little Girl: Hey! How are you?!

LM: Wait, Dad, No, she was talking to me!

LG: Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyy...

LG: Hey there, big boy! {batts eyes}

And that was the very first time Little Man got picked up by a girl in church.
