Nora's baptism

 Nora was baptized on Sunday. She wore the same special dress that Ella did (and I did!). It was sweet for many reasons, but one memorable detail was Ella holding her hand while we were waiting on stage--the second newest member of our family's part of the covenant community reaching out to welcome the very youngest (Ella is so deep, right?). Having our babies baptized is such a reminder to me of why God has given us these precious little girls. They are for us, in a sense, but ultimately they are for him. By putting them in our family, he has given us the responsibility and joy of bringing them into his family. What an amazing thing and a high calling!
