OK, enough of the logistics, lemme get to the good stuff, the pictures.
The day went swimmingly, likely due to the fact that we wanted it to be a mellow, low key kind of event. We only had the Grandparents, Aunt Heidi and the Godparents in attendance.
Nanny brought down the bib they used to baptize Nick, but as I'm showing here, it's way too small for Jenna's head. Apparently that's the difference between baptizing a preemie and baptizing an 11 month old.
Nanny & Jenna pre-ceremony. Jenna had a beautiful bracelet made by her Great-Aunt Reenie and a cross of her own (tucked inside the onesie) that was blessed after the ceremony. Both pieces are stunning.
Please ignore my 'I'm stressed, when are we getting out of here' face. My Mom and I, pre-Mass.
Awwww.... He's so wrapped around her finger, it's crazy.
She didn't cry. But that doesn't mean she wasn't questioning what kinds of shenanigans we were up to.
Taking a good look up above.
There was one other baby being baptized that day, too. He was 6 months old.
Our little family :)
Us, the priest, and Jenna's Godparents, Uncle Mike and Karin.

Back to the house for food... and CAKE!
All in all, everything came together beautifully.
