Christening Day

It only took 6 months, but we finally had Joseph baptized on Sunday, January 27. It took quite a while to find an outfit that was big enough, since babies are usually baptized much earlier, and are generally not twice the size of their age.

Proud parents:

Catholicism in action:

We are thrilled to have 2 wonderful people to be Joseph's Godparents: Brent's brother Glenn, who is his "Parran" (French for Godfather), and my dear friend Missy, who is his "Fairy Godmother."

We are also thrilled so many important people could come - Carl's parents from NJ, Brent's Mom and Gran from Louisiana, and Glenn, Suthern, and Leyton from Houston.

JT is already trying to get his hands on Daddy's baked goods!

Thanks to our friends and family who came to share in this special day with us! And a special thanks also to Meredith and Suthern for being fantastic photographers and documenting this event for us - we wouldn't have this post without them!

Congratulations! Joseph is such a beautiful baby! I am so happy for you two. Gran told me all about the special event! Love to all, Susie

DANG THIS TECHNOLOGY! I posted a comment for the Christening on the flexibility post. I'm on the German's laptop and a pop up came in German but I decided it probable said "do you want to post" so I clicked OK (which is the same in German- curiously enough!) and it reset to the first post. Still boycotting the Christening!
