Everly will only be a few weeks old. The plan is for her to wear the Norris family baptism outfit. The outfit is about 90 years old and was originally worn by my mother's uncle, Father John. After him, my grandfather Nick Norris wore it. Then, all 6 of his children wore it, including my mother. Myself, and my 3 sisters also wore the same outfit. My mother's uncle, who originally wore the outfit, was a Catholic Priest and actually baptised my mother and all of her siblings as well as myself and all of my siblings. Although he has passed away, it will be very special to have Everly wear his outfit.
Everly will have 3 godparents. One will be announced later, because we haven't formally asked that person yet! The other two will be my sister-in-law Carly Dinslage and her husband Mark. We are very close to them and are so happy they accepted our request to be her godparents.
There are a lot of different feelings I have gone through while being pregnant but I have really not felt much of that pressure/nervousness that we are actually going to be parents! That is until now. Planning Everly's baptism really makes me feel like a parent and I hope I end up being a good one!
