A baby dedication is a ceremony where parents and family members commit before witnesses to submit a child to God's will and raise that child according to God's word and ways.
For Mason's graduation, family came from near and far. There were aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and great-grandparents. My dad, the Pastor of our church, took a seat for the ceremony to be the Pop-Pop. A close family friend and Pastor at our church officiated the ceremony. With the eyes of his family and friends on him, my nephew couldn't resist the time to make eye contact with each family member around the room and wave. It was so cute.
The ceremony was short and sweet. The cuteness was too much for my soul. The love was real. It was a great day. Afterward, lunch was served. On the cake, there was a message.
2 fingers. Oh, 2 FINGERS!!! Does this mean what I think it means? Yep, dos... as in two. TWO babies... that are *like* mine. Islanders, my brother will have another little one and I am going to love that baby like it's my own. It was real. Then, it was public information.
