Amanda's Baptism

We had Amanda baptized in Dallas on May 17th. It was extra special because Bill Smith, the minister who visited my mother in the hosptial and did her services, baptized her and mentioned that she was named after my mom. The dress Amanda wore was something that my mom and I picked out in the Baylor hospital gift shop in August. My brother and I pushed her around the hospital in her wheelchair and of course, we had to stop in the gift shop. We saw the dress and talked about how cute it would be if only I knew if I was having a baby boy or girl. The next day Dr. Payne gave me my wish and did a sonogram to tell us that baby Amanda was a girl. So, off I went to buy the dress!!!
