Holy, holy, holy!

Yesterday the Divine Ms. K was christened, and I attended (and the walls of the church did not come tumbling down!) the ceremony. She was such a good little girl. She didn't cry or fuss one little bit when she was sprinkled with the holy water. Then the minister carried her all over the church to show her off to the congregation and she giggled, laughed and smiled the whole time. What a ham! Five months old and already loving all the eyes on her.

And she looked perfectly adorable in her little while velvet dress and making satin bloomers. And she had one of those elastic headband things on, with a bow. And after the ceremony, she laid in her mama's arms and fell asleep. And in her sleep she rubbed her little head and caught her fingers in her headband and snapped her own elastic and woke herself up! She made this little yell and a terrible face but never let loose with a wail but we all thought she would. She shot daggers at her mama, I'm sure thinking it was all her fault!

It was a lovely day and she was such a star!

A star is born,
Maggie

The church didn't come tumbling down? Then you weren't kicking the walls hard enough!

Farrago- kicking the walls? Now that would just be asking for trouble.
