Our blessed boy

Well, baptism went far better than we expected!

The night before was a little tough since Cayden decided he just didn't want to sleep from 12:30 until about 2 a.m., but if a rough night was the trade-off for an angel baby today, we'll take it.

Brian and I both got moving around 8 a.m., and somehow we both got gussied up and prepared Cayden in two hours. Brian shaved, I straightened my hair for the first time in two months and Cayden ate a couple of times before getting putting on his Sunday best. Unbelievably, we left right at 10 a.m., our target time to get out of the house!

And the dear, dear boy slept the whole way through the church service, except for a few grunts when Pastor Wetzel passed the water over his head. Apparently he tooted while in Pastor Wetzel's arms, though. Mama and Dad got a little emotional during the walk of blessing, but baby slept the whole time. A quick dipey change and small bottle during the last hymn, and we were off to brunch with family and friends.

Where Cayden continued to sleep! In fact, he only had one diaper change and two small bottles (he didn't finish four ounces either time) between 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Lots of cameras were out, so everyone who got good shots during church and the brunch needs to upload them to Cayden's Corner! Here are a couple of shots of our handsome blessed boy.

Thanks again, Max (and Jess & Dave), for letting our little guy borrow your suit. It couldn't have been more perfect.

Without the jacket, as he was for the church service:

And with, just for some photos:

And a shot with Max, who wore the same suit two years ago this October for his own baptism.
