Baptism (Grandma's Brag Book)

Today our little grandson Gavin was baptized. There were four other babies baptized at the same Mass so although there was some competition in the cuteness department, Gavin clearly won because as you can see, he is indeed the cutest baby that ever lived. And since his head size ranks in the 99th percentile, we're fairly certain he's going to be a genius. Look at the noggin on this kid! I caught him here in a reflective moment of prayer so we're thinking that he's already contemplating the priesthood.

Everything went well until it was actually time for Gavin to be baptized. He decided to pooh his diaper right before heading up to the altar and he started screaming as Father dipped his head in the holy water and continued to scream throughout all the other babies baptisms. Of course, everyone in the congregation was chuckling at his wailing but I could tell that my son was sweating bullets. Welcome to the family of God Gavin!

The lovely family:

The Godparents:

Grandpa:

And last but certainly not least, Grandma:
