Tallulah's dedication day

Tallulah had her Mormon baby blessing in South Carolina two summers ago, but when we started attending the Unitarian Church here, we wanted to do their version of "totally not a Christening" which in Unitarian terms is called a "Child Dedication." You can read a little bit more about it here. We had something of a debate about whether Atticus should participate too, but we felt he was a little old and might have misbehaved. We should have realized that Lulah would be at a prime age for acting up at the wrong times, while Atticus can at least be bribed. So, Atticus ended up being fairly sweet in participating, and sad that he didn't get a nice blanket. And Lulah, grumpy from getting done being sick, just wanted to explore the stage behind us. We still enjoyed it though, and it was so nice to have so many of our friends there.


Atticus gets ready by coming his hair:

Lulah prepares by putting a dirty rag on her face while riding her bike:

Let me back in!

Look at all those other well-behaved children. Sorry for disrupting guys.

Oh well, at least we've got each other


  1. love all the hyphenated names on that list. hahaha.

  2. Not just the hypenated names but the high-end names in general... Vivienne... Lucinda...Basil Sebastian. It reads like that chapter of Freakonomics. Not a Caden or Logan or Madison or Chloe on the list... :)

    Oh, and Atticus is getting super handsome. I can't wait to see him.

  3. Peter, Henry and Grant aren't so bad. Henry is a great kid, I teach him in our Children's Religious Education class.

    1. Oh, I don't think they are bad. I love the classic and "high-end" names. I just wish I had read Freakonomics before I started naming my kids. If I did it over today they would be Olivia Anne (Ollie), George Arthur, Benjamin Thomas (he gets to keep his), and Henry Christopher (because c'mon, the kid looks just like his dad).

      I really spent way too much time thinking about it. I'm going to offend my kids, whose names are actually pretty good.

  4. I love all the pictures of A brushing is hair. So cute.

  5. Some of these are pretty cool. If would respect the list more if it weren’t so mac centric however. Nice list either way… more info visit "Barcelona Corporate Flats "
