Girls in White Dresses with Blue Satin Sashes

Annie's first communion was last weekend, and despite my trepidation leading up to the event, it was sweet, appropriate, and meaningful. She was beautiful - angelic, even - and she seemed to like being the center of attention for the day, a flurry of cousins around her, cards and gifts being showered on her, and a fancy outfit to boot. I watched her reading a card aloud to the whole family after brunch, and then I watched her read the opening welcome to the entire church at the beginning of mass, and I thought: who is this poised, confident, charming little lady? We were understandably pretty proud of her, our little Anna Catherine.
