A Lovely Day

Babyface2_3 It was Finley's 'Baby Blessing' at the weekend. I'd vowed not to leave it so long that he was capable of walking down the aisle and blessing himself, but here we are fifteen months later, and Finley not only walked up to the font, he also shouted "Hiya!" to half the congregation, and tugged at the poor Vicars beard as he blessed him. It was lovely and hilarious and oh so completely Finley, and I thought I was going to burst with pride for my little boy.  He looked absolutely gorgeous in pale blue trousers, the sweetest pale blue leather little boots and a Victorian style double breasted wool coat. While I had wanted him to wear something a little more traditional, he is such a proper little boy that the lovely vintage gown I had saved for his special day made him look like an overgrown baby in a girls dress. It breaks my heart to think that he's not a baby anymore, but I guess he will always be my little babba, and when the party was over and he collapsed on my knee covered in chocolate cake, he looked as precious and as little as ever...

If you are looking for a Vintage Christening Gown (worth it for both the quality of workmanship and fabric), then both CradleLace  and Christening Outfits are worth a look. Just remember to thoroughly check both size and condition.
