We celebrated Nora's baptism yesterday. It was really special and we had a lot of family members who took a good chunk out of their Sundays to come celebrate our little girl.

First, we all attended regular Sunday Mass. Afterward, our family stayed behind while the chapel cleared out, and then our priest performed the private baptism. Nora was a little angel and was such a good girl throughout the whole thing. She didn't cry when the water was poured over her head--just had a very surprised look on her face! It was cute.

Some pics from church:

After church, we headed back to my mom's house for a party. It was just a really nice day. Of course, we were busy hosting so we didn't end up getting many pics at the party. Doesn't that always happen? Ugh. But after the crowd cleared out, we did get some pics of Nora smiling at her Aunt Cristina...

And this face is just hilarious:

And then one with Aunt Cristina:

The day was a success, and left us all exhausted. I was in bed by 9:00 and sleeping by 9:30, which is essentially unheard of for me!

It was really nice to have the opportunity to share the joy that Nora has brought to our lives with so many of our family members. We are so thankful for the gift of Nora's life!
