She is His..

This past Sunday (February 17th) was a big day for sweet Hattie girl.  Before our family, friends and church body we dedicated her to the Lord.  We prayed over her little life and made proclamations that from a very young age, even now, that she would love Jesus and live to serve Him. That He would be present in her life and protect her.  That His will, not ours, would be done.  That God would be present in our home life, and that Dallas and I would seek His Will in raising her.  It was a special time, and I'm just so thankful that we have such an amazing group of people who care about us and our precious babies.  People who will keep us accountable.  People who are there for us, without judgment. People we treasure.  Thankfully Hattie saved her blow-out until just after the service:).

She was such a good girl and didn't make a peep.  She let pastor Jamie hold her and she just looked around the entire time.  

Jude and Rhett were also SO good.  Someone told me that during the prayer Rhett had his hands raised at one point..wish I could have seen that!  Our sweet friend Mary took these pictures (above) and I'm so thankful for them, she did a great job!  

We had to lose the tights and shoes due to the aforementioned blowout.

She is His, she always was. I love her so much and i'm so very blessed and thankful that God chose me to be her momma. 

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 139
