and yet... how could I not be proud of my little girl... for so many reasons really - but this photo was taken on the occasion of her baptism (just over two weeks ago now... I know, I'm slow to post)
you see, in our church a child is given the opportunity at age eight to be baptized into the religion. I have met people who think that this is far too old... and others who think it is far too young. Me? I think it's just right - because my eight year old little wonder knows so much about the tenets of our religion and she certainly knows how to choose between good and evil (and only occasionally does she opt for the later... evil grins mostly).
See the pride in my eyes? See my little H just reveling in all of the attention. See ManOfTheHouse (who just celebrated a birthday this week!) trying to give a "natural" smile? I'm proud of us all. Proud of me because I didn't fall apart too much. Proud of H because she's an amazing little person. and Proud of M.O.T.H. because he is a great Dad who was able to baptize his princess...
