Dedicating Greta

We dedicated our sweet Greta girl on Mother's Day at church. She wore the same dress that Harper wore, a gown handmade by my great grandmother. My great grandmother died giving birth to my Grandma Hollywood and her twin brother (who also died). Though Grandma Hollywood never wore it (my great grandfather's grief prevented him from ever seeing the dress on my grandmother), all of the baby girls (and a couple of the baby boys) have since worn it, beginning with my Auntie Kay. What a precious legacy that dress holds.

This is the third baby we've dedicated at Vista Community Church (see Harper's dedication here and Henry's dedication here). It is an honor and privilege to dedicate our babies among such an incredible church body. We are so so grateful for the precious blessings of children and faith community.

When you give a girl a tutu.

This spring Harper took ballet classes through Columbus Rec & Parks. I could go on and on about what a wonderful experience it was, not to mention it only cost $24 for 8 classes. She loved it, and I am eager for the fall when I will register her for tap lessons through the same program.

Oh my heavens, I could eat.her.up.

Love you, my sweet ballerina, Harper Lynn.
