This christening gown was made from my mother's wedding dress from 1988 and was made for me for my own christening twenty-six years ago. I love the fact that I wore this, as did my brother and now my two boys and I think Beau looked simply angelic in it on his special day.
The little details on the gown make is something truly special. It's got little lace embellishments, ribbons and a big bow detail on the back, it's so beautiful.
I took these photos of Beau myself on the morning of his christening. I'm really trying to get back into my photography - with life being so busy at the moment it's been hard to get out and about with the camera with two boys in tow - and Beau is the perfect little muse for me at the moment, he's so easy to photograph.
I think he looks like a little doll. As the lovely, kind old lady in the hospital called him after he was born - a little dolly dowse. Jacek and I both looked at each other and laughed when she said that because she didn't even know about the blog when she said it.
I feel so blessed to have to handsome, loving and wonderful sons. Thank Heaven for little boys.
