Cohen's Baptism

This morning we were blessed to have Cohen baptized at Trinity Reformed Church. Well, technically at NWC's Christ Chapel since our new church building isn't finished, but the church is not the steeple, you know? Cohen did great and didn't fuss at all, being quiet the whole service for once! Ryan did okay for this being one of his first times ever sitting through an entire service. He got a little restless on stage but did fine and some books and a new sticker book (and who are we kidding, a Dum Dum lollipop) got him through the rest of the service.

Adam's dad was able to perform the baptism which was very special to us. I don't have any photos from the service, but we got plenty of family pictures afterwards.

 After the service, we had everyone over to our house for lunch.
 And, of course, there was cake.
 Ryan was baptized at about the same age and here's a link to his baptism.

We are blessed to have a healthy and happy baby and I am trying hard not to take for granted the precious time we've been given to help him grow to know the Lord and walk with Him. We dedicate Cohen to God and pray that He will guide his life and ours as we have the privilege to parent him and Ryan.
