Who am I fooling? I anxiously await every weekend. Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy the week, but I enjoy the weekends so much more.
However, this coming weekend is different. This weekend is different because we will be going out of town to my parent's house. We will be celebrating my brother's birthday and Mother's Day, my first as a mommy. We will get to spend good quality time with many family members. And just being at my parent's house is exciting enough.
But, this weekend will also be different than most weekends because we will be dedicating our baby girl. We have decided to have her dedicated at the church where I grew up. As of Sunday three generations of women will have been dedicated at that church. It may even be four generations, but I am not a 100% sure. My mom was dedicated there as a baby, I was dedicated there and now Morgan Kate will be dedicated there. It is also the church in which my grandparents were married, my parents were married and where Travis and I were married. It is a beautiful church that holds a very special place in my heart. I have many, many memories in that church. Travis and I are both excited about this special day!
Now, don't sit there and think that I am not a little nervous. I am. I have played the events in my head numerous times. I am not really sure how the service will play out, but I do know that Travis will be carrying a bottle of hand sanitizer with him. I remember watching dedications as a child and the preacher taking the baby and walking them up and down the aisle. Ummmm. Not so sure we will be doing that. I am still super nervous about germs and big crowds. But, I feel confident that things will go smoothly and I don't plan to pass Morgan Kate around. And if the terrific preacher there wants to hold her then I will kindly ask him to get a squirt of hand sanitizer.
