I LOVE your baptism dress!!!
In my family we have an heirloom Christening gown that's made out of extra material from my mom's wedding gown. I'd originally planned on using that... but I may cut up my wedding gown and use it instead... I want SOMETHING good to come out of that dress
I actually belong to the same church as Rachel, and in our faith, babies are given a special blessing instead of a baptism. Baptism in our faith is a choice that you make when you're older.
Honestly, I grew up in a VERY Catholic small town. Well, it was 48% Catholic, 48% Lutheran and 4% other... I was an "other".
There are some things that the Catholic church does that I don't agree with. Other things make sense... but some things are difficult. I think if you can find a more progressive priest (they DO exist) you have a better chance of having her baptized in the church, if that's what your husband wants to do.
Good luck, no matter what!
Thanks to tasha_mae for my BEAUTIFUL siggie!
