Since Rory's birthday was on a Sunday, Duncan and I decided that we would dedicate him on that day. It was fitting that we celebrate with our church family who have helped us so much. It was great that other family and friends could journey there to celebrate with us and pray for us and we publicly declared that we wish to raise Rory in a Christian home, knowing that any faith he possesses in the future is a work of God.
Thank you God for our little scallywag who is soon turning from bubba to toddler (he has just started 'cruising', his tottery little legs moving along as he clung to the coffee table and couch).
What a difference a year makes!
Those of you who read this blog regularly may remember this post I did just before Rory was born, declaring that I don't do cakes! Well, I gave it a shot - not to compete with other mums, but just for fun (knowing I could always just make a round chocolate cake with smarties on it if it didn't work out). I loved this book as a kid and spent many hours flicking through it. My poor mum was probably quaking in her boots, wondering which cake she'd be asked to make! Now the book has been passed down to me for the next generation.
|Tada! A joint effort from me and Duncan. It says 'Leonard|
the Lion' in the book, but we called him 'ROARY the Lion'.
