Pour Some Sugar (or Holy Water) on Me

So I'm finally getting around to posting the pictures from the actual baptism. It was actually quite an interesting morning. On our way to church, I realized I had forgotten both Joey's sippy cup as well as the little puffed snacks I normally bring with me to church. When all else fails, he's usually hungry. Instead of sending Daddy back to get them (the church is less than 5 minutes away from our house), I opted to go commando, so to speak, and hope for the best. BIG MISTAKE!! He slept through church, but then cried almost the entire baptism ceremony.

We got him to quiet down just long enough to snap this picture before it all started.

Oh, and did I mention the only time he wasn't crying was when they poured the water on his head?!?! I think he was ready to jump in the baptismal font and go swimming!

We were able to get one parting shot of the whole group. (Yes, my parents are Joey's God-parents.) Of course nobody is looking at the same camera, but whatevs.
