Fancy baby's fancy day

My nephew, “Flapjack”, was christened last weekend!

One of us is paying no attention to the words being spoken.

He looked VERY fancy in his special outfit and was well-behaved — albeit a bit puzzled — during the service.

I was surprised at how difficult it was to find an outfit for him! Many of the stores that we checked don’t carry christening outfits in-store anymore. I guess that’s a testament to the role of organized religion in modern American life. Check out this 1997-era style-less HTML table!

Stores with in-stock christening outfits

Nope! Yep!
Babies R Us
Carters
Nordstrom
Macys
Burlington Coat Factory
JC Penney
Boscov’s
Sears
Buy Buy Baby

The stores that did have christening outfits in stock had racks and racks of cute dresses for girls, and two styles in one size (usually the wrong one) for boys. And the styles for boys either had gaudy embroidered doves on them or looked like a white satin ventriloquist’s dummy suit. Which, no. We ended up going online to Baby Beau and Belle (not a sponsor, I suck, etc) and were very pleased with the selection and the delivery. Etsy was out of the question because of the time constraint.

I don't know why I look so smug. I had nothing to do with bringing this child into the world. But he's pretty awesome.

Party!
