I'm super late in blogging about this, but we held Preston's baptism back in September and it was a great day. We did it at J's families church and it was so special to be able to do it there - it's the same church that Jake was baptized in over 30 years ago! We had a small luncheon at my in-law's afterwards and everything came together nicely. I was sort of nervous of how P would do with sitting through an hour and half church service but he was seriously an angel! Luckily the actual baptism was at the very beginning of the service and then he literally fell asleep in my arms for the rest of church!

Pictures from the day... 
His Baptism Gown - it was made by J's mom and both Jake and his brother wore it for their baptisms! I love that it has so much history! I added the monogrammed bib to help with the massive amounts of drool that happen now.

This is the best picture we could get with P's godparents - he was in the middle of a breakdown!
