Fairy Godmother

Heh. I couldn't think of a title for this post. However, I was completely honored to become a Godmother twice over on Sunday with the baptism of Miss Matilyn Rebecca!

The second reading during Mass was from Romans 8. Verse 26 states, "We do not know how to pray as we ought. But the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words." This means a lot to me in my journey with God right now, but I had to laugh when Matilyn chose that moment to start moaning and groaning about wanting her bottle!

After Mass, we took some pictures and then headed to my cousin's house for BBQ.

Ross and me with my maternal grandparents. We didn't match on purpose...
Loved seeing family and snuggling with the sweet baby. Thanks, Matt and Heather, for letting us be a part of Matilyn's special day!

Nap time! I handed her over to Ross once she fell asleep.
When she woke up, she stared at him with such a confused look: "Who are you?!"
But she was okay with it. Kids love Ross!
