Baby Dedication

As mentioned below, we had Joshua and Emma dedicated at our church today. A baby dedication, for those not familiar with it, is done in place of a baptism and represents my and Dan's commitment to raise our children in a Christian home. Dan was dedicated as a baby and I was baptized (Catholic) so we are happy to be able to do something to solidify this choice for our children. We had such a great day- both of our families were there and E&J were on their best behavior at church. We had everyone to our house after for lunch- what a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!

What a beautiful moment!

Love the pics, Josh looks like he is going to be a little flirt with the hand behind his head. Liam does the same thing and gives us a little look when he does it. So cute!!

We dedicated our little guy when he was a month old and he was NOT into it :P He kicked and whined the entire time!
