pearson's dedication

I prayed for this child, and the lord has granted me what I asked of him.  So now I give him to the Lord For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.  
1 Samuel 1:27-28

Last Sunday was a special day for our family as we dedicated Pearson to the Lord.  
We actually skipped ABF so Pearson could take his morning nap and be a happy little guy while he was in front of the whole church.  He was so interested in the big screen.  
He literally couldn't take his eyes off of it. 
All of our family got their early to get front row seats to see our sweet boy!
Our sweet preschool minister had everything organized for us and ready to go before the service. 
We were first up on the agenda for the service.  Another little boy was also dedicated with Pearson.  He was born just the day after Pearson.

Our pastor talked about how Jesus was presented in the temple around the 40th day, and joked about how had waited a little bit longer than that.  But it wasn't technically my fault.  I called to get him on the schedule when he was a few months old and this was the first Sunday they had available!
Pearson was very content while we on stage, he especially loved looking at  the big screen while he was on it!!
Our pastor prayed that the Lord would bless our precious boy and that he would grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord so that one day when the Holy Spirit moves in his life he will call upon the name of Jesus.  
It was such a special prayer to pray over our son in front our family, friends, and church.  
But of course, being a Mom, I had to take a peek and see how my boy doing!  And our friend Jonathan caught me peeking on camera!!
We are so thankful that our friend Jonathan took all the pictures for us during his dedication so my family wouldn't have to worry about it.

Our family loves Pearson so much.  We are so glad they were all able to join us for this special occasion.

My little brother came, but I didn't get a picture with him.  And my big brother and his family were out of town, so they couldn't join us.
