"I Am A Child of God"

 At last, this little love bug of ours is baptized and we could not be happier! After planning the baptism for September and having to postpone it due to the Rubberducks winning, this day was so special. Although D.J. did not grow up in the Catholic church, having HC baptized in the same church I grew up going to and the same church we were married in.  Harrison was baptized with six other little babies by Deacon Derek, who could not have been more appreciative of us continuing the faith alive in Harrison.

Not to brag or anything, but Harrison has some pretty amazing Godparents.  Two people who serve and love the Lord - people that practice the Catholic faith in their daily lives - people who I know will love and teach Harrison the way of the Lord as he continues to grow in his faith.  Thank you, Wyatt and Maria, for being there already and in the future for us and for Harrison. 

To have Harrison's Godfather be someone I've know since elementary school is so special.  We have grown up in the church together and sat through lots of CCD classes together.  And Maria is nothing short of amazing.  She packed up her family of four (including an 8 week old little nursling and wild-child 2 1/2 year old) and drove from Michigan to be here for Harrison's special day. Maria and I have been best of friends for the past four baseball seasons.  I can not imagine going through this baseball life without your family.  Life is coming full circle as we have seen Sonny be born, talk about more babies, find out Harrison was in my belly, add little Francesca to the mix and now have you in our life forever as Harrison's Godmother. I can't say enough good things about these two special people.

We are so fortunate to have so many family members that live close to us, but to have so many people that love us to drive in town for this was so sweet. We had people come from Washington, D.C., Fredericksburg, VA and as far away as Michigan.  Gosh, we love our friends and family!

We are so honored, blessed and thankful for all the love and support our friends and family have shown us since Harrison has been born and especially on this special day of his life.
