Addison's Baptism

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day for a wonderful occasion.  We couldn't have planned this any better even if we could.

After taking a nap and eating, I dressed Addi in her white outfit and put a bib on top because she's a big fan of ruining outfits with her spit up or poop.  There wasn't much I could do about the poop except pack a spare white outfit.

This is us, waiting to go in to Church.  Addison fell asleep in her car seat on the way over, which was just fine by us!  I don't know why Jonathan has a poop-eating grin on his face; maybe he's just really excited.

In the middle of the service, we were invited up for Peanut's Baptism.  Our Church is very modern and easy-going so the whole thing was very low key, but incredibly nice. 

Surprisingly, Peanut did super well.  She slept until it was time for us to go up.  Then she made faces at the kids in front of us.  She didn't flinch when the Reverend put water on her face and she didn't cry when he took her from us for a couple of minutes.

She even stayed up for about 15 minutes afterwards, just hanging out in my lap and listening to the service.

Of course, that didn't last and she promptly fell asleep in my arms.

We stuck around for a little while to take some pictures since this was a pretty big deal.

And since we travel with paparazzo, there were a lot of cameras so there are pretty much no pictures of everyone looking in the same direction.

Then we headed home for some Brunch.  Like a true Diva, Peanut had a change of outfits.

Okay, okay; that's because the perfectly white outfit would have been ruined in seconds.

All in all, the day couldn't have been any more perfect with amazing weather, amazing company, and a perfectly well-behaved little girl.
