A Baptism

A couple Saturday's ago we had Quinn baptized.

Baptism's at our church involve being in front of a lot of people the entire time (and I'm not a big fan).

First, we baptized the baby in the common area by the fountain, where the entire church stood around us and watched.

Then we had to walk down the aisle after everyone was seated to "show off" the newly baptized baby, where we then we had to sit in the front of the church through the entire service. 

I was the leader of the pack so of course, I sat in the second row instead of the first because who sits in the front row? People who like to kiss ass for life, that's who.

My sister then proceeded to give me evil eyes and/or said something to me in the form of a whisper about how I'm supposed to sit in the front row.  Or maybe it was my mom?  Whatev.  I do what I want.

During the last part of the service, we had to stand in front of the altar where we received mother and father prayers.  Again, in front of everyone. 

Then we followed the cross back up the aisle where we were bombarded by people and congratulations. 

It was actually very nice.

Quinn was a perfect angel the entire time.  She didn't cry at all.  During the actual church service, she took a bottle and then said "peace out, I'll see you bitches after this business is done" and asleep she went.

Also, when we arrived to the church, a man gave us instructions on where were to sit and other things.  Then he said, "you don't look old enough to be a mom."   Umm thanks?  Should that be taken as an insult or a compliment because it really could go either way.  I am a mom, I know I look 16 and no thank you, I do not want to be featured on Teen Mom...oh?  I get paid, then yes please, sign me up. 
No, sorry I don't live in a double wide.

Finally, my favorite part came.  We went to eat where I proceeded to stuff my self with prime rib, grease fried shrimp dipped in butter and Mountain Dew.  I didn't even have a swip of alcohol.  What has motherhood turned me in to?

I actually think the best part of the day was having my family together...AWW!  We haven't all been together since my sister's wedding back in May so it was long overdue. 

Also, did I mention that my sister-in-law is preggers which means Barney & I get another niece/nephew and Quinn gets another cousin.  She's due in March.
