levi was dedicated at church today. it's always a sombering thought knowing that levi will learn of the Lord first through his mother's love, then as his father & mother teach him together. we are responsible for who he is. i know that some people might think that actually raising the children doesnt come into my consideration when i want to have another child, but that couldnt be farther from the truth. that weighs heavily on me - constantly. it is not a responsibility i take lightly. i realize raising my children is a high calling & a privilege & it is one i absolutely i love.
i am uploading video to my youtube account & hopefully will be able to attach it to this post later.
but for now...here is some pictures of levi in his bumbo, in the bath & a group shot of the dedication. sadly i didnt even get a single picture of levi by himself in his beautiful white sweater outfit. next time he wears it i will.
look at those kissable lips! he is such a doll. he was actually looking & watching intently his sisters who were standing over the tub watching him.
and yes his little ears are a bit elfish, but he's one of the cutest elves ever right?!
we are all up there...all 8 of us. the families to the right of us were dedicating their kids also. we tend to take care of the dedications rather quickly. i cant handle letting it go for too long.
pastor craig said he wanted to hold one of the "babies" being dedicated & levi was actually the only real baby up there so of course pastor grabbed him up. and levi was perfect for him. it is always humbling to think about God's great love for us that He came in the form of a vulnerable little baby to save us from an eternity separated from Him.
