While Mary Kate did not particularly enjoy the Mass prior to her baptism, or Fr. Tim pouring water over her head, and while she made sure that the entire Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the surrounding Savannah squares heard her voice, it was still a very special day. To have the two priests who celebrated mine and Ross's wedding turn around
Thank you to Aunt Roo/Godmother for making a beautiful cake

After a special day, we went spent a few days in Hilton Head with Ross's family and are really thankful for the vacation away. We had great time with family and great time in prayer and reflection. It was wonderful. MK has a little bit of a rough time adjusting to all the newness but thankfully the Ninnesses were very patient and loving to our little pain in the neck!
This new mama doesn't take beach photos but here is a sweet one from a delicious seafood dinner at Skull's boathouse.
After a 7.5 hour trek home from Hilton Head (someone thinks that her carseat is filled with nails), we made it home. We finished the week with MK's two months shots, two weeks late and then some awful football with good friends. And exactly one week from MK's baptism day, Ross and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We ate our weight in Italian at Alfredo's (please please gift yourself with dining here!) and talked about where we hope to be September 26th 2020. We shared a bottle of amazing wine and I sat, staring at this man, and wondered how my kid and I got so lucky. Sorry for the cheesiness, but one year in and I am smart enough to know how truly blessed I am.
So excited to wear makeup and go out without a nursing cover in tow!
All in all, this week has been about celebrating the life God so inexpicably gifted us with. It has not been without its stress (it's my life, after all) but it has been full of grace and goodness. I am so, so thankful!
