baiely's baptism

1. I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain

And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.

(I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.)

2. I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
And I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.

Chorus
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

bailey was baptized on saturday and it was great. we had the support of lots of family and friends. she definitely felt the love!

milestones are a crazy thing because they truly make you think about life, and your parenting.
i stood there at the baptism wondering how bailey grew to be eight so quickly. i felt a rush of
emotions as i saw her with her dad both dressed in white.
she looks beautiful, radiant.
i'm so thankful i have the honor of being her mother.
does she know how much i love her?
wasn't i just holding her as a newborn yesterday?
does she know how proud i am of her?
does she know how happy she makes me?
no, seriously, wasn't she just a baby?
i have so many hopes and dreams for this little girl.
she has come so far already and has grown into a little angel.
and then i started thinking this was a small scale
of how i will feel at her
graduation
wedding
baby shower
etc...
wow, life really creeps up on you, doesn't it?

(this picture was taken in colorado. i think this little ravine is so beautiful, peaceful, and surreal. and could the light be any better?)

I have to compose myself before commenting on this one. Let's just say the baptism was beautiful and perfect - just like Bailey Susie.

I was getting teary eyed myself and she isnt even my beautiful grandaughter. She is such a cute and sweet girl.

I was there, too. And I still cannot believe it. Bailey is 8 and baptized. My mind just does not want to wrap around that fact. I just want to go back to that summer when I was 14 and she was like 2. She was sooo cute, running around, playing with Melissa & I. Swimming with us and after five minutes her lips turning blue; and her refusing to get out of the pool.
Congratulations to Bailey and your family. I just cannot believe how mature and grown up she seems!

Wow, Amy! This post is absolutely beautiful (picture & words)!

We love you so much, Ms. Bailey! And we are so happy for you!

Okay Amy...you need to give me a photography lesson. That picture is breathtaking. I am in awe...I want to blow it up for my living room and I haven't even met Bailey. She is beautiful...I can see why you feel like you do. You are right on the money...life does creep up on you. I have been feeling that way...trying to feast on each moment and remember it like it is. Carter is probably my last little baby and I want to soak it all up as best I can. It all goes too fast. Congrats on her baptism.
