Lainey's Baptism

Finally found a few minutes to post pictures from Lainey's baptism at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Keller, TX. Many thanks to Ryan for his photography.

Before the ceremony, we attended the 8:30 service. Carter was chosen from Children's Church to help present the offering during mass. It was a very special privelege for him and us to watch!

Sweet Lainey. I wish I could put a bonnet on her everyday.

During the ceremony.

Carter is such a doting big brother. Immediately after the priest poured holy water on Lainey, he ran up to hug and congratulate her.

Pa (honorary Godfather and proxy for my brother, Chris), Caroline (Godmother), Blake and baby.

Lainey loved the flame of her baptism candle.

Ryan and Caroline with Lainey. Such a great couple.

Caroline and Lainey. I think everyone knows by now how close Caroline and I are. It meant the world to me to finally have this special day with her present, holding our daughter and being the wonderful aunt she is. We are blessed!
