My parents have kept a box for each of their children filled with mementos from our childhoods. Mine is full to the brim with pictures, school work, birthday cards, treasured toys, and baby clothes. Years before Annie was born, I found this sweet blessing dress tucked in my box with my Pink Power Ranger and my Joy School diploma. I've kept it with me ever since, and last Sunday Annie wore it for her baby blessing just like I did nearly 30 years ago.
It was such a happy little occasion with family and friends and our sweet little baby. Just one of many moments that will make up her life and fill her own box with relics of her childood! We're so grateful she's ours- our little Annie Elizabeth :)
