Charlotte got baptized in April and I'm just now sitting down to blog about it. We waited way too long again for her to be baptized. She had an opinion and she wasn't afraid to share it! Tiny little newborns are a lot sleepier and less combative. Oh well. It made for an eventful baptism.
So Father Cassian asked us first thing where we thought he was before he came to St. Tom's. We had no clue. I guessed New York. No, he was looking for Indiana University. Bad start, Father. Ha! But he was great! He then continued to quiz us on the bible, Catholicism, church traditions, the sacraments, etc, throughout the baptism. Boy, did I realize how much I really did not know off the top of my head. But it was extremely informative... and sweat-inducing!
During the ceremony, Tommy didn't sit still. He made use of the space at the front of the church.
The one key moment I definitely have to document is that when Father Cassian announced she was baptized and everyone could give her a hand, Charlotte turned around and looked at everyone clapping... and started clapping herself. After whining, crying or screaming through the ceremony, she was clapping all excited. Father Cassian thought this was the funniest thing ever! He laughed so hard! My Aunt captured the moment perfectly!! Love this picture!
Here's Charlotte with her Godparents, Uncles Brandon and Adam and Aunts Erin and Cait. Aww!
It was seriously a lovely day to get family together to celebrate this important event.
Happy Baptism, Charlotte!
