Motherhood Monday :: The Baby Was Christened (Family Pictures)

Happy Monday All! How was your weekend? Ours was jammed packed but today’s post is about Sunday Morning. My baby was Christened yesterday. My 3rd and final baby!!Emory in suit

Baby E was christened yesterday wearing his big brothers Christening outfit, who wore it 7 years earlier. Right now Baby E is doing some major bathroom action after he eats and ended up messing up this outfit after church while we were at lunch. Thank God for a change of clothes. So after we wash it, I would love to frame it with a picture of both my boys. emory christMy Bishop Keith Young, Sr. has christened all three of my children. He has seen me come to his church as a 22 year “young” lady and has watched me marry and become a mother of 3. He has prayed over and for my family on many occasions. We are grateful for such a wonderful man of God in our lives! Family emory

These family pictures didn’t come out well, so I apologize. I asked someone to take pictures for me and they didn’t get close enough or seem to even try to focus!! [Insert SAD FACE] I am sure they didn’t know that my pictures go on my blog! My mother came to our church for this occasion and the Godparents are also on stage with us. I didn’t get a good picture of all of us, and I regret that. Baby E has two set of Godparents, but the other couple was not able to attend the service. B in red

Yes! That’s me in Red Baby! I bought this dress Pre-Baby E and was so excited to fit back into it. This dress is a size 6 luvs!! And it fit great. I am going to keep it real, I did have a smoother on so you won’t see lines but other than that …. it’s all me! I felt so good in the dress, I must admit it. I have been on my grind with my workouts and I can see that my hard work is starting to show. It’s not about losing a gang a weight anymore, but now I am focused on my shape. I want everything TONED and DEFINED.

Funny Story: Over the weekend I told my two older children that their baby brother was getting christened. They asked, “What does that mean?” I explained that, “We are giving him back to God.” So my oldest son says, “Mommy, so will he still be alive?” I laughed and said, “Ummm, we gave you two back to God as well and your still here, so yep. He’s not going anywhere!” I went on to explain it to them the best way I could.  Gotta love the kids!!
