Sophia's Baby Naming Ceremony

My very favorite teeny, tiny baby:
Sophia

Isn't she lovely?
David's Mom is a wonderful Grandma!
Sophia will grow up well loved and adored.

Kaishon loved her of course!
Who wouldn't love this sweet baby?
She is absolutely delicious!

I love her parents.
Tina's Dad cherishes his new grandaughter!

Could she be any more beautiful?


My question today
on ABC Wednesday is:
What is your favorite gift
to give new babies?
A bear? A bond? A bug?
Go check out the other S's today.
Wordful Wednesday is here.

I love this little baby girl. She is indeed very beautiful.

Maybe a photo book of the first few months with the baby?

mamamia said...

Run DMT said...

What beautiful pictures! That baby is just precious!!!

As for a gift, I like to give something that will hang in the nursery/bedroom. I once found a cross with an inscription on it that said, "I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me." That was my favorite gift.

photowannabe said...

She's incredibly beautiful. What a perfect choice for the letter S.
If the baby is a girl, I just can't seem to ignore the cute little frilly dresses. I know they just wear them once or twice but they are just so darn cute.

She is precious and what gorgeous pics you are taking!

I can totally tell I am now in "outdoor mode" because I am coveting the scenery in the grandma pic! Gorgeous : )

theArthurClan said...

I love to give children's literature or diapers. As a former teacher, I think children's lit is so important. And as a mom, I think diapers are so practical.

That baby is GORGEOUS. What a sweetie-pie!

Woman Interrupted said...

Cute! Monogrammed blanket & lovie set is my fave gift but plain ones are hard to find.
