Auckland Baby Naming Ceremonies, Celebrant Alexa Bartlett

Welcome to you !
Who came through the door of the soul...
You are a radiant dreamer..
Bless this child with:
True love, angels, rainbows and surprises
Amazing faith and pure laughter...
You're so beautiful and everybody loves you!
You are so deeply wanted.
We're so glad you're here.
Bless you.
How do you like earth?
A glorious welcome to this spirit born.  ....SARK.
Namegivings  are a rite of passage which marks a new arrival into a family. Traditional christenings were held and are still held in churches to celebrate the arrival and bless a child.
Celebrants offer namegivings to families as a welcome into the world.  Family relationships are deepened and parents become fully aware of their responsibilities.  The child may be blessed and God Parents or Mentors can be chosen.  The ceremony is an excellent occassion for families to express their culture and celebrate the birth of their child.

These little darlings have brought much joy into the lives of those parents, grandparents and all those who know them.

" A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on".....Carl Sandburg.

This delightful wee boy Louis smiled through out his naming ceremony and looked delightful in  the gown he wore which had been worn throughout the generations for over 100 years. 
A Mothers Wish
I hope one day my child looks back on today
And sees a mother who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking
But children grow up when they are not looking.
Tomorrow I'll do all the chores you can mention
But today, my baby needs time and attention.
So settle down cobwebs: dust go to sleep.
I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep.
