These were all taken after the service. SYT did very well for the actual baptism part. He looked a little frightened when we tipped him backwards over the font, but didn't fuss at all. He also seem confused when just his hair got wet- he's used to the full body bath :) MCW asked if he wore a gown or an outfit. Neither Blair nor I had a "family outfit" per se, so I bought him a light blue, very traditional looking outfit from Petit Ami. I was going to have it monogrammed, but I thought if we had another baby boy in the future, I would use the same outfit again, so I left it plain.

Our teeny fam (excuse the really bad pic of me and SYT- B's the only cute one here)
After the brunch, my parents and my gram, B's parents, the Godparents, and B's cousin and her husband all went out for brunch at the country club close to our house. It was delish!!! We debated hosting at home, but after having 5 guests in our house all weekend and planning meals for all the other times of the weekend, I'm glad we went with a restaurant. It ended up being much more reasonable than we expected and it really took the stress off us!
It was very nice having our families around to celebrate the occasion, and, while I love them all dearly, I'm so glad we have our house back!! We have been go, go, go since Thanksgiving, and I'm so thankful we'll have a few weeks of quite ahead of us to just get back into our routine. Spencer was a horrible napper this weekend due to the commotion around the house, and, while he remains happy, he gets really clingy if he doesn't sleep and that can be hard when you are also trying to cook meals, make sure guests are happy, and clean the kitchen constantly!!!!
So, here's to SYT's baptism and a restful week ahead for all of us!! Hope you all had a great weekend!
