Noah's Big Day

Today was Noah's baptism. Since it was a day that required fancy dress, I decided the best course of action was to hang out in our jammies until the absolute last minute. In Noah's case, he hung out in his diaper.
Matthew LOVES hanging out in his jammies so he was more than happy to comply.
Noah's little suit hung in our bedroom, ready to be worn.
Once I got all the boys dressed, I forced them into a short photo shoot.

And I even agreed to be photographed.
Then it was off to the church. Noah was one of six babies being baptized today.
We set Matthew up with his "busy toys" - a magnetic Toy Story set that we bought at the church tag sale.
Noah took a cat nap before the action started.
Noah was very well behaved during the ceremony. I'm not gonna lie, I have been nervous for weeks worrying about this!
After the ceremony we took a few pics in the church.
We attempted to get all the cousins together. This is the best shot I have.
After leaving the church it was off to the restaurant to continue the celebration with good friends and family.

Mare Mare took the opportunity to take a short snooze in between courses.
I'm sure she was having daydreams about this cake!
Noah cooperated for pictures throughout the day - including this one with his Godparents.
Matthew spent his time with his best bud Alex.
And at the end of the day, we were all stuffed with good food, good cake and good times. Noah was spent!!
And now Matthew and Noah are in dreamland for the night. May God bless all my boys!
