Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes indeed, I do love me a list post. Anyway, so I see I've got some new visitors from Faith & Family Live! today (Hey, y'all! Crack open a beer if you're not pregnant! Although if you're here because of that thread then you probably are. So, um, have some super exciting water, then? Yay! Water!), and since you came because of lists, I'll take that as a sign that another list is in order.

Top 10 Photos from Mary's Baptism on Sunday (TTPMBS for short)
|Don't be fooled by the size of those cheeks and forearms- the enormous child is barely 2 months old|
|"Focus, focus. Pay no attention to the screaming toddlers fighting over sippy cups. MY screaming toddlers.|
|One of the screaming toddlers. Right after she was foiled in her attempts to knock over the baptismal candle.|
|The big moment- and approximately exactly when Cecilia started yelling "WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY BABY????"|
|Parents, godparents, priests, baby, toddlers and that electrocuted badger on top of my head.|
|"That was really hard work, guys."|
|3 slow cookers of delicious, delicious glorious food. "Pull here for sandwiches"|
|My screamer changed and got her key-ring of awesomeness- then was quite hospitable to sweet Ben, son of Rhonda of A Naptime Novelist. That faker.|
|She was also QUITE fond of the baby's gifts. Including the size 6-12 month jacket that she forced me to put on her. It was 90 degrees out.|
|Yay! Baptism! Delicious and gorgeous cake, handmade by Mary's sweet godmother.|
It was a great day, full of love and joy, food and drink. And 2 priests who stayed at our house until 11 p.m. discussing subtle nuances of liturgical music and Greek translations of the New Testament with a certain husband of mine who was very, very happy.
