Avery's Baptism Dress

Luke and I are so excited to have Avery welcomed into the covenant community this Sunday. She will be baptized at our home church in Austin, where we'll be returning to in January; we are so grateful for the care they gave us after she was born, for the sweet friends we've made. We look forward to finally being able to really get involved, and to see Avery grow up knowing that there are so many out there looking out for her.

So - here is the debut of her baptism dress. This was definitely a labor of love, in which I spent the past week learning how to sew while trying to achieve perfection at the same time. With help from both grandmas, Avery's dress is complete.
