George's Baptism


This last week we baptized George! It was such a wonderful occasion for our family. I can't believe how teary-eyed I was over it. I was so happy that Mark's family and my family were able to come.
We all gathered together at the church and after my dad spoke about the savior and baptism, then George was baptized. I was surprised that my dad actually had pictures of my own baptism so many years ago. George was able to see me at that young age. Then after Dad was done speaking, George entered the baptism waters and was baptized. After he was baptized, then Mark's dad spoke about the importance of baptism. George's baptism was confirmed by a wonderful group of family and friends. (Fieldings, I love you!)
Even though my kids were running wild (Teddy), I could feel such a warming peace in the room. I am so proud of my oldest.

What a very important and life changing time. Doesn't it just make you feel like he's stepped into a part of manhood? My girls have not been baptised yet, but I always imagine that when they do that they'll seem older to me. Wiser, or something. I guess just more connected on that spiritual level.
(I really like your shirt, by the way.)

Holy cow, I can't believe he is that big already. What happened to that rolly-polly boy that couldn't crawl for the longest time. He is becoming a young man! CONGRATULATIONS from us. Sad that we missed it. Happy days.
