I wish I could take credit for the idea! I think my sister had mentioned the idea first years ago, and I'm glad we were able to make it happen (plus there should be enough fabric leftover to make her son a baptism outfit, too! So it's double the special use).How wonderful that Baby J was baptized today. Her dress is beyond gorgeous. The tailor did a fantastic job and what a special sentimental thought to use your mom's wedding dress. You had great weather for the baptism too!
That made it worse for me. They could flop and get away! Like what is this kid? Wrestlemania!? I've got you by both feet in one hand and you are still trying some kind of octopus move on me. Keeping a toy for the changing table only helped a lot. At least until DS dropped a Rosita play figure on my foot. It literally hurt for the next 3 years if you pressed on that spot. No one warns you that parenting is dangerous!That dress is beautiful. When mine started getting good at rolling over and trying to crawl I gave up on the changing table. I started using a baby blanket on the floor.
I hope she is, too! Naperville is really big, so she might not be in that area. The tornado landed not too far from where I grew up and my parents live, but my dad let us know it missed them. I don't think we were ever quite in danger where we live, but we decided to be safe just in case.I just heard about the tornadoes in the Chicago area. Napierville was hit by a tornado. I think that is where DreamerRose lives, I hope she is okay.
I have to admit I think it was easier with the baby in their own room as well but everyone needs to do what is right for them. The important thing is that she is safer in the crib now.
Oh Lari, the dress is so beautiful!!! Congratulations on her baptism!!! Baptisms are so special.J got baptized today! They just opened up the state Friday so we didn't have to wear masks, which waa really weird. It waa just J and an 18 month old at the ceremony and she did so good. Some chattering and looking around, but no crying. I'm so happy she's baptized. And her head still smells good from the chrism.
We had a tailor make her dress out of my mom's wedding dress, so it was very special.

Her 16 year old cousin picked out this present for her. I kind of love it.
