|She always keeps one hand on her food|
My brother in law and his wife are the godparents of Cordelia and they flew in from CA for the weekend. We all crashed at my in-law's new house in rural VA. Sleep was a little iffy for both Cordelia and Faith, but the baby has the advantage of sleeping whenever she wants during the day.
The church for the baptism was about an hour from my in-law's house (it's the church where my husband and I got married and where Faith was baptized), so we had to get up pretty early to make it on time. The star of the show wasn't pleased.

Cordelia's little booties were my favorite part of her outfit, but I guess she didn't like them.
|These feet can't be contained!|
Side note: check out her meaty little thighs! I love them so much.
The actual baptism was interesting, mostly because Cordelia is a quiet and agreeable baby...unless you're giving her a bath. Then she gets Hulk-level angry and screams like a banshee (like the imagery from that mixed metaphor? I sure do) until the bath is done. Then she glares at me for at least 30 minutes about the indignity of having water dumped on her head. As soon as I handed her to the pastor, her face scrunched up and she started screaming and didn't stop until the whole thing was over. Priceless memories.
She got worn out from screaming in front of a packed church of people and passed out just in time for family photos.
My husband's side of the family:

|Faith decided to redeem herself|
Did you go out for NYE or stay in? I went to a neighbor's party at 5:30pm, but left at 6:45pm to get home for toddler bedtime. I couldn't even drink because the baby was due to eat. Pretty wild and crazy stuff.
