We had the pleasure of celebrating Nathan's baptism at our church at the beginning of January. My whole family flew down for a long weekend and hung out at our new house while we prepped for the big day. Ryan's immediate family and aunt, uncle and grandmother also came to be with the monkey, so it was quite the crew at church!
The service was at 11 am so I was nervous how the bubs would behave since we had to interrupt his nap but he was so good the entire time! The church made it so special - we went up to the baptismal font with Kelly and Lincoln, Nathan's godparents, and after the pastors baptized him and prayed for him they walked him around the entire sanctuary while we sang a song just for Nathan. It was all very sweet and Nathan loved seeing the congregation.
After a round of photos (of course) we headed back to our house for lunch and cake. Nathan didn't last too long once we got back and slept for most of the afternoon but we enjoyed celebrating him anyway.
My mom sewed Nathan's christening gown and did such an amazing job putting it together. He looked so angelic! It was such a special day and so nice to be surrounded by so much family to celebrate our little one and the start of his relationship with God. I only hope we can continue to foster that bond so that he sees God in our house every day!
