preston's baptism

It was a brilliant and blessed day!
I mean minus the mild virus that Preston developed late last week and his first tooth breaking through (no big deal, right?) it was a perfect day and he was the sweetest baby (although certainly not the happiest) before, during, and after his baptism.

As much as I hate for him to be sick and to think about the discomfort of teething he completely melted my heart this weekend.  He preferred to be held and would just lay his head on my shoulder.  He wasn't shy about still sharing those smiles though.

Oh yeah about that baptism.

Here are a few (ha!) pictures from the day.


Definitely P's biggest fan.

We had family and a few friends over afterwards.  Here's a few of the decorations from lunch.

I found an old piece of trim left over from our remodel to display Preston's baptism pics. 

And the guests...
P's great grandfather and the best-brisket-smoker ever. Isn't he cute in his red, white, and blue?
taking a break from it all in his nursery with his Gr (pronounced grrr and short for Grandpa Randal) 
Ryan (a good friend's son) and Hunter (our nephew) were fast friends.

We hated to see such a sweet day come to an end. We spent the rest of the evening just hanging out longing for the daylight to continue and savoring the sweet memories of the day.  I love this picture and how the rays of sunlight are coming through the window.  I like to think it's his Mimi (my mom) letting us know she's watching from above.

What a beautiful day! Teething turns happy babies into whiny ones, but once you see that tooth sticking all the way up, it's hilarious!

Great pictures, Preston is sooo adorable! I'm so happy it turned out to be such a beautiful day...you can't even tell that P was fighting a virus and teething in any of the pictures. :)

Looks like such a wonderful day! You mentioned the teething and wanted to share a product I found for my son (10 mos). It's NOT a paid post...just one mom telling another!
