HEV's Baptism

We baptized Hadley on Mother's Day. Sweet girl was 7 months and 1 week old. This was also the two year anniversary of my sweet MawMaw's passing.  So this day meant a lot to me --- and was perfect for Hadley's baptism and our vows to do everything possible to always point her to Christ. 

Just like every other day (ha!), Hadley was so chill and relaxed.  Preston wanted to go to Sunday School so we arrived early for that which gave Tony and I to hang out with Hadley for a bit by ourselves.  Here are the pics ... 

And our first family photo where we are ALL smiling.  Maybe one of these days we will all be smiling at the SAME camera.  Ha!

You'll never be a perfect parent, but you can be a praying parent.
You don't have to do everything right as a parent, but there is one thing you cannot afford to get wrong. That one thing is prayer.  It covers a multitude of sins, it turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destiny of generations to come, and it's the most lasting legacy you can leave.  Your prayers live on, long after you die, in the lives of those you leave behind.
Mark Batterson, in one of my favorite books.  

Matthew 19:14
