Modest Monday and a Link Up (Baby Blessing Edition!)

Sunday was a special day for our family as Sophia had her baby blessing at our church! I’m always nervous, hoping the baby will not cry the whole time but she did awesome!

Baby blessing of Sophia at our church! Such a special day!

All of the other girl’s blessing dresses have been homemade. This was the first dress that we actually bought, and I hope she will forgive me later in life. 😉 It’s important to me that they each have a special dress of their own, so they can pass it down to their daughters one day if they want (I don’t have a special dress, being the youngest child I don’t have any special clothes saved back).

A sweet baby blessing dress!

I found her dress on Zulily and it was a great deal! Baby bonnets are a favorite of mine, so I loved that it came with one. 🙂

Sean and I couldn’t love this girl any more. I don’t worry about not having enough love for all my children, every one is so different and unique. Thankfully we have never had issues with sibling jealously towards a new baby. They are loved and kissed on all the time!

Family love! I love having a large family and think of every child as a blessing!

I found this maxi dress at Costco and realized I’d be able to nurse in it using a halftee! They really have been such a blessing for the pregnant and breastfeeding years, and the normal seasons of life as well. 🙂

What I Wore

Maxi Dress – Costco (They are around $18 there!)

Halftee – I wore the ¾ sleeve just because my short sleeve one was dirty. 🙂

Sandals – Wedges from Kohls

Flexi Clip – Mini clip from Lilla Rose (Don’t forget about the free shipping special going on for new consultants, and the informational Facebook party I’m doing Thursday night!)

Makeup – L’BRI Pure and Natural

  12. Your baby is so sweet and your family is precious. What is a baby blessing? Basically the same as Baby Baptism?

    • Caroline says:

      Thank you! No a baby blessing is where we bring our baby to the elders in our church and they just pray a blessing over her/him. The idea is taken from where Jesus took the little children in his arms and blessed them. We don’t believe in infant baptism. 🙂
