Ryder's Baptism

Ryder was Baptized on at the Easter vigil service. It started at 8pm and didn't end until 10pm. Not only did we have Ryder there, but Mason as well. I have to say I wasn't looking forward to it since it was so late in the evening. Both of the kids go to bed around 7. Ryder's Godparents live in North Carolina so it was the soonest date that worked for all of us (our Church only does a handful of Baptism's a year on certain dates). Despite being nervous and wondering why we picked this date on the way to the church everything went well. It was a beautiful service that started out in pitch black and was candlelit in the beginning. Mason loved looking at all the candles and only got burned twice. There was a couple iffy moments with Ryder but I just went to the back and helped him get to sleep. It was a very busy week for us with having Ryder's Godparents here, the Baptism and then hosting Easter the next day. I was happy to see Monday and get back into our routine.

The day before his Baptism we did a quick little photo shoot while Mason was napping. Ryder wore the same outfit Mason did. It was made out of my wedding gown!
