During those years of yearning I would dream and imagine what our kids would like like, how they would be and who they would become. I imagined what all of their milestone would be like. Like the first day of school, riding a bike and getting married. One of the first milestones of our family's life is getting baptized. As a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, we believe the appropriate age to get baptized (if your family are already members) is eight years old.
Okay, back to the baptism. About two weeks before I took Liam to a nearby field and did a mini photo shoot with him in new suit. He wasn't too happy that I was pulling him away from playing and pouted halfway there. I was getting frustrated inside. Didn't he know that I dreamed about this moment for so many years. No, he didn't. I took the long walk to share with him my feelings about what was about to happen to him in his life. I told him that it was him that made me a mom and I couldn't be happier about that. We bonded and took some great pictures! Downfall is that I've recently lost most of them so I'm cherishing these few that I do have.
We invited friends and family to come. I was really sad that I was unable to have any of my family come, but most of Ian's side were there.
Afterwards we celebrated with lunch at a great restaurant and just enjoyed each other for the rest of their visit.
Liam thought since he was old enough to be baptized, he was now old enough to tie his own tie. He didn't wan't to be "baby" anymore (his words) and wear a snap on tie anymore to church. His dad showed him twice how to do it and now he is an expert! Here is a video I took shortly after he learned.
