First Communion Dress!

Little Miss Chatterbox is going to receive her first Holy Communion this year on Easter!!! We are beyond excited and it has been so much fun preparing her for this huge event. She is so smart and so deep. She understands concepts quickly and is growing more in love with our Lord everyday. She is also very excited and marks off each day on her calendar as we get closer and closer. She just picked out her dress. It's beautiful, just like she is. It's not the one I wanted to get (did I really think she would want the one Mom wanted?) and was actually going to pick the one I liked because she was afraid of hurting my feelings. :) I thought that was very sweet but told her this is HER big day and which dress did she want to wear when she receives Jesus for the first time. And it was this one:

I really do love it and I can't wait to see her in it. What got me really excited was that after I bought it, I realized it reminded me of her baptismal dress. So I looked through my pictures and sure enough! Look!

Did I mention that Easter is on her Baptismal Anniversary this year? She will be getting her first Holy Communion on her Baptismal day, in a dress that looks like the dress she was baptized in. It's just too much joy! I can't wait!
Tomorrow is her first time going to the Sacrament of Penance (confession). Could you say a prayer for her, please? That it all goes smoothly? Thank you!

*Update: This is the dress I had picked out:


  1. It is beautiful! Can't wait to see it on her.
    Where did you get it? It does look like her baptism dress, how nice.

  2. Beautiful dress! She is going to look lovely. Will say a pray that he first Penance goes well tomorrow! I'm curious about the dress you had picked out... :)

  3. Oh, and I love your updated blog design. Very Spring-like! :)

  4. Look how lovely that little girl was with that communion dress, I wish I had a baby girl too.
