Last Sunday my little nephew Max Evan was blessed. In my church it is very similar to a christening.
I love how my family supports each other at such events. This was just a portion of our big family. Whoever could make it was there.
Growing up it was getting up early to go watch my brothers wrestle all day. As we got older there were tennis matches, choir and band concerts, football games, school plays, and graduations. Now as grown ups it's baptisms and baby blessings. I love it!
I just love this little guy. I know he was meant to come to our family at this time. I so hope that my little guy will come soon so that Max has a buddy to grow up with. With all the girls in our family he is totally outnumbered. He will need a buddy to play cars with and wrestle with. Dress ups just aren't gonna cut it.
Maya and Eden just love little Max. We are all about nick names in our family and Eden decided that "Maxy" was to girlish so she calls him Max-o.
During the meeting Maya was busy drawing one-eyed monsters. So this is her after church showing me the picture while Eden acted like a one-eyed monster. Papa Joe doesn't look too scared.
I am so glad that we have family that lives close enough that they can make these special occasions. It makes them even that more special. I'm still basking in the togetherness of Maya's baptism. To those of you who weren't here...yeah Tia Ana, I'm talking about you and the others...you were definitely missed. But don't worry I gave Max lots of extra kisses just for you!
And a very special acknowledgment to my ever funny husband, Aric. Who no matter what, can find some way to be obnoxious and make us all laugh....even at a baby blessing.
