The Christening Gown

My maternal grandmother made this precious christening gown in the early 1900's. Four generations have worn it.

My mother wore it (and possibly her sister, Bernice, wore it),
I wore it,
My daughter wore it,
Her first two sons have worn it,
And tomorrow her third child, sweet baby Donovan, will wear it.

I've embroidered each name on the bottom of the gown.....a history of this special dress.

I miss my grandmother....I miss my mother.....
