Jay got baptized this Sunday. We would have done it earlier but our pastor was on sabbatical for a while...in a lot of ways it worked out good to have him baptized at almost 4 months.
Normally Jay wakes up before 7am then takes at least an hour nap in the morning before 10am. Today he didn't nap at all until 10am and that only lasted about 20 min. I was thinking it was going to be bad news for church and that he would be screaming up there the whole time...but he woke up happy. At the last minute I used Velcro tabs to keep his cute little white shirt tucked into the pants and it totally worked!
I love our church so much because the people there understand what it means to help raise Jay in the faith and to support him. Pastor Don talked for a while about how baptism is kind of like an engagement ring, and that Jay will (God willing) profess his faith in God someday.
While we were up in the front of the church Jay did great. He sucked on his fingers and stared at all the people:)
While he was getting baptized he blinked a few times, but seemed to like it. I think he thought it was bath time.
Then we went home and had lunch with some friends.
I tried to make cupcakes with a "J" on them...but they didn't look near as fancy as I wanted them to, so I smeared them and put some sprinkles on top. They actually ended up looking good- kind of watery- which works for baptism:)
We took some pictures at home too:
