Before Hadlea was born, we found out how truly blessed and loved we were by the gifts we received while we awaited her arrival...after Hadlea was born and we were in the hospital, we found out how truly blessed we were by the amount of prayers we received for her to get better and get to go home with us...and this past Sunday was NO different! We had so many friends and family join us as we Baptized Hadlea. I have said so many times that I LOVE and look up to my Godparents in so many ways, and I hope the same for Hadlea too. Justin and I talked several times about who we would choose to be Hadlea's Godparents. It was not a choice we took lightly, but in the end, it was the right choice for Hadlea. I know my brother Alan and best friend Shannan will watch over her if anything EVER happens to Justin and I. I know they will provide the best for her and make sure she knows Jesus and follows Him with her heart, ALWAYS! Now, on to pictures...I have to say so many of these pictures will always have a special place in my heart!
My grandma, My dad's mom, & Hadlea's great-grandma
This picture just makes me smile! Hadlea gave her Great-Grandma so many great smiles!
Another picture that makes my heart smile! This is Katelyn, my Goddaughter, and Hadlea. Hadlea could NOT get enough of her!
Jake and Hadlea, my cousin's son...he is 4 months and a chunk! I wonder if Hadlea will EVER get this size! :)
Justin and Brynlee...she LOVES her Justin
Hadlea and her Pappy
Berkley's girlfriend, Mazie!
This picture makes me smile because that is MY dad...playing 'horsey' with my best friend, Shannan's daugher! Just think how much fun Hadlea and her Pappy will have when she is older!
My Granny...Hadlea's Great-Granny or Gigi!
Ms Brynlee and Hadlea
Hadlea and Kennedy
B and KK...these are two of the sweetest girls, but I have told Shannan that Hadlea is NOT allowed out of the house with Brynlee when they are older unless Kennedy is with them...KK will have a conscience! :) Brynlee is just ornery...I mean, look at the smile!
And here is Justin barried under blankets and pillows by B and KK!
