Baptism

Ah little miss Violet, she might have to get her own category! Today was her baptism and Brett and Michele had me be a special part in it which was so amazing. I was 13 when I was baptized (my parent’s had me like committed to Christ when I was a baby so I could choose later when/if I wanted to be baptized). So I do really remember my baptism and how I felt. It was neat to be a part of this and have those feeling come over me again. Some pictures from the event:

I’m smiling because she just looked so sweet and calm.

There’s a little water in my eye here people. But she just barely cried, then back to happy baby.

Proud parent’s look on. Pictures are a little blurry because Bj didn’t use the flash, which I think was a good call.

Pants were lost towards the end, which prompted a wardrobe change at the after party. And yes that is

Apparently the traditional godparent gift to baby at baptism is a silver cup. But who wants to put that kind of pressure on a kid still on the boob? And I’m all about instant gratification so I went with a teething rattle (it’s a combo of this and this, but I can’t find it on the site anymore, weird). It was a huge hit. This thing is the perfect size for baby hands and she managed to hold on to it until she drifted off to the land of nod.
