Oona’s baptism day

Last Sunday was a day full of blessings, family time, and one little baby who wasn’t sure what to make of it all. Baby Oona was baptized at Trinity Episcopal Church on April 15th in Ambler, PA in front of many family members, friends, and the Trinity congregation. She was one of three babies baptized that morning, and of course, the only one who cried! As my DH said, she was the only one with a normal reaction to having water poured on her head. 🙂

It was hard to get decent pictures of a moving baby, but my DH did manage to snap a few that were decent. Hopefully we will get more from the other camera-hounds in attendance soon. Oona’s dad, Mat, held her throughout the ceremony, and I just love this shot of the two of them.


Too bad this one is so blurry, but it was the only one we got of the actual baptism.  We should have told Father Dave to hold still for a Kodak moment!


After the ceremony was over Oona was happy to be the center of attention. Especially as long as Mommy held her!



She wasn’t quite as happy when Nana hold her, but at least one of us was thrilled!


Oona is telling me a secret. I promised not to tell Mommy and Daddy!


 It was a wonderful day and celebration, and I was relieved my DD loved how Oona’s dress turned out. I think Oona loved it too, since there were no expulsions of any kind. Whew!

Happy sewing!
