Caroline's Baby Dedication

Today was a very special day for our family. It was Baby Dedication Sunday at our church and Caroline's 6 month birthday! In the morning church service, Tripp and I dedicated Caroline to the Lord, and committed ourselves as her parents to raise her in a loving, Christian home and point her always toward Jesus. We are so thankful to God for the greatest blessing He has given us -- our sweet Caroline. We are also thankful for our wonderful family and close friends that helped make this day even more special.

This afternoon we had a party honoring Caroline and her dedication. We enjoyed visiting with family and friends, and Caroline had a great time, too!

Ready to party!

Sitting Up!

For the past week, Caroline has been sitting up by herself! It is amazing to us just how fast she is growing. Before we know it, she will be crawling and walking. We are having so much fun with her at this stage. Caroline is such a sweet and happy girl. When I picked her up from the nursery today at church, the ladies all commented on how happy she was. They said she just smiled and played the whole time! She has brought so much joy to our lives. I always tell Tripp that Caroline's love is "the sweetest love", and he agrees!

All dressed up for church (thanks to Jenni for the sweet dress and Miss Cindy for the warm, pretty cardigan)

Caroline loves playing with her Daddy! Tripp always makes her smile and laugh. I walked into the living room the other day to find that Tripp had made a tent for Caroline by throwing a blanket over her swing. He would lift up the blanket and say "peek-a-boo" and Caroline would start laughing! It was too cute!
