On Saturday our baby turned 8.
I can't believe it!
How time flies.
We will be getting her baptised on 3rd March (hopefully).
She was a little apprehensive about getting baptised in the lead up to her 8th birthday so our bishop suggested we have a "wet run" for her. So last weekend they filled the font and she went dressed in her swimmers to do a practice run. They had the font filled for another little boy in Lauren's class, Levi McCormack as he is very sick and has only been given a few weeks to live but he really wanted to get baptised (his birthday is the day before Lauren's) but they had to do a practice run for him as he is very frail.
Lauren did so well. In fact, she enjoyed it and now can't wait to get baptised!
After the practice she didn't walk back to the stairs to get out - she swam! I hope she doesn't do that on the day - dressed in her white dress and all!
We got some photos taken of Lauren in her baptism dress as a momento of the day.
Here are some of the photos:
We had the family over for lunch on Saturday for her birthday and she had such a good time.
She loves it when the family gets together! Here are some photos:
Of course she had to taste the icing to see if it was OK!!
Happy Birthday my little angel!
