My Little Elf Goes To Church


Last Sunday pastor had little Caleb Joseph dedicated at church. I was super nervous having to go up by ourselves in front of everyone but we did it! Yes! It was hard. This is our sixth time having a baby dedicated and I still get nervous. You know what it more retarded? I sing on the platform for song service and for a wedding(s). Yet, it freaks me out to go up to have my baby dedicated in front of everyone. When we walked up to the stage, pastor said "Looks like Caleb is all dressed up for church looking like a... a.. well, like a little elf." We all laughed! It was true! He had little pants on with monkeys on the booties and a striped long sleeve shirt with a hat. So he's my little elf now.

I always envision this scenario where as I am walking down off the stage, I trip and fall, the crowd gasps, and I drop my little baby. It's like a nightmare I have all the way up till the baby is dedicated.
So after the dedication was actually over, not only was I happy he was dedicated to the Lord, I was relieved (and Caleb I'm sure) that I didn't fall and trip on my face. Hoot, hoot!

You should ask Patti Rice about her husband's sermon called "Dropping the Baby" in which my mom was asked to bring Abigail when she was a baby - up to the pulpit - and she tripped on the way up there. Maybe she'll tell the whole story on her blog! (: Your baby is so beautiful!!!

Well, I'm a special-needs mom and I really hate the use of the word "retarded" as a pejorative.

Caleb does look very sweet, though! I read the post thinking you would reveal that he IS an Elf like my kid. :P

My sister tripped on the way up to have her baby blessed at church several years back, but she didn't fall. It's funny the things that we dread, they don't always have rhyme or reason. I am glad you made it back to your seat all safe with dignity intact! And Caleb is so sweet...
