Sophia's Baptism

Sunday was a very special day for Sophia and her entire family. In addition to my first Mother's Day it was the day of Sophia's Baptism! Sophia was baptised at our church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Cleveland Hts.

Here is our little lady all dressed up for the big day.

The big moment, being baptised.

I have to take a moment to sing Sophia's praises. She was amazing on Sunday! Of course she is wonderful every day ;) but Sunday we were anticipating some fussiness. Who would have blamed her there were lots of new faces, she missed her 11 o'clock nap (since mom doesn't consider dozing in and out during church a nap), she was up in front of a huge crowd of people, had her picture taken a hundred times... well, she barely fussed at all! She was so calm and happy. While being baptised she just sucked on her pacifier and stared up at the minister. She went down for a nap at her Nana and Pappy's after church, got up and joined the party.... The only time she fussed was when mom tried to let others hold her. I think all the new people were just a little too overwhelming for her so she needed something familiar.

We love you sweet girl. You amaze us every day with all you are learning and doing. We hope and pray you always have faith in Jesus and know his abiding love for you.

More details from the big day to come!
