It was a very special day for all of us and Frankie cooperated so well during the little service. Although, he gave the Pastor quite a look when he started to pour water on his head, he didn't fuss or cry.
We have found a church that we are excited to attend and we were thrilled to have little Francis baptized there. The church we attend is quite large so there was the possibility of up to two others being baptized during the same service but thankfully it ended up only being us. The baptism service was after the Saturday night church service and it was a very intimate and special baptism service for Frankie.
All of Frankie's grandparents were able to be there as well as his Aunt Christy, Uncle Matt, and cousins Madison and Ava, his "Uncle" Andrew, and, of course, his godparents: Kevin & Ann and Heather & Dan. His godparents are individuals that are very near and dear to both Steve and I; we are excited for them to forever be a part of Frankie's journey through life.
After the baptism service, we had everyone over to our house for some delicious food that Mama Herrmann made. It was such a great evening celebrating this wonderful event and enjoying the company of wonderful family and friends.
