Sophie's naming day!

marissa writes a blog on sunday...

So tonight is a bit of a sentimental blog... today was Sophie's naming day.

What a fantastic day! We had our extended family and some of our close friends over to celebrate with us and it was just lovely :)

The ceremony was just beautiful! We had Melodie Johnston (of Melodie's Magic Moments ) do the ceremony for us and it was perfect - everything was exactly how we pictured it!

Sophie was so good - happy, smiley, and looked gorgeous in her naming day outfit! I'll be posting some pics on my personal Facebook page tomorrow for you to take a look at, she's so pretty...

The only worries leading up to the day (luckily they worked out!) for me were:

How Sophie would go: With 60 people and a very busy day, we were hoping it would go smoothly for her. But Sophie's a dream baby, and it turns out we had nothing to worry about! The party was an afternoon one, so Sophie woke up from her lunchtime nap, had the ceremony with us and then went back down for another nap after photos and a bottle. Perfect!

The weather: The forecast was cold and showers.... and it was cold, but only a light shower at party time - and it was at the start of the ceremony, which was under cover, so perfect timing! Everyone was able to fit under the sheltered area and the result was a very cosy ceremony. Plus we had wine, beer and coffee to keep us all warm...

And that was it! Everything else was a breeze - our friends and family are lovely, they helped us with setting up, packing up, keeping Sophie amused, taking photos, and a few even stayed for the football afterwards :)

I have to give a huge thanks to our families, Sophie's Godparents, our friends, and especially to Ben (and Soph!) for making it such a happy occasion :) It's days like these that you realise how lucky are...

See you next time,

xo Marissa.
