Ryan's Baptism

I can't believe my little boy is 8 already! It seems like just yesterday he was making his hurried entrance into the world. (He was a very speedy 45 minute labour, born on the bedroom floor, delivered by Jonathan and Mum).

Ryan was so excited for his big day to arrive. When it finally he did got really nervous - mainly because Elle teased him that the Bishop was going to ask him hard questions in his interview!

The service was short and sweet. Grandpa conducted and talks were given by Ma, Mum, Uncle Laugharne and Uncle Paul. Elle was bribed with $5 to sing a song and did a lovely job. While Ryan and Jonathan were getting changed we played a little slide show of his life so far which was really cute.

It was a lovely night shared by family and friends and hopefully one which Ryan will remember for the rest of his life.

He looks soooooooo grown up!!! I can't believe it! Sounds like you had a wonderful day. What song did Elle sing? She's a great singer! I would love to see the slide show when we get to New Zealand. That would just be awesome :D

someone has forgotten to mention that I was also at the delivery...getting towels. The slideshow was really cute. That's a good pic in the font.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that you were the number 1 towel getter at Ryan's birth. Hey, does anyone know what it feels like to stand in a pool of amniotic fluid???
