Last week I announced baby J's baptismal and I'd like to update you all about it. The baptismal went well and our attendees were just the family members of hubs. As you all know my family is not here so that leaves me "alone" on this special occasion. We sent out invitation to my godfather and godmother there in LA but due to work schedule they didn't make it. I was hoping they could come so I can have them as my parents' representative. Oh well, can't blame them because I know how busy it is here.

Here are some photos for last Sunday's event, with our little prince who looked so cute in his baptismal outfit given by his godmother. I am not posting anymore any of those "not so happy looking" photos which were criticized by my bestfriend after seeing it. Don't get me wrong about not being so happy, I was very happy that finally our son's being baptized. Just the thought that I don't have any of my family members with me to celebrate our very special family occasion made me feel a bit empty. I know if this is just as near as other Asian countries then my family will be back and forth visiting us here, unfortunately we're on the opposite side of the globe.

The three of us woke up early that day to prepare ahead so we won't be late. Since baby came I've been late to most of our appointments. I used to be the on-time and early bird but now it all changed, baby's dictating our time. It was harder when he was younger but so far it's getting better. Schedule wise he's keeping up with us little by little. I had a last minute change of blouse because the one I originally chose didn't work out so good when I practice feed baby. Baby also had to omit the bow tie, it was too snug on his neck and I fear that he might end up crying once he gets irritated.

The ceremony wasn't that long and 2 other babies were also baptized together with Jariel. He's very behaved and didn't even cry when the priest poured water on his head and later on oil. Mommy and daddy were so so so proud!! After the ceremony we had some picture taking then off to the reception place. We changed venue from the buffet restaurant to the Korean BBQ Restaurant hubs' aunt suggested. The foods were great and it was definitely a feast! Too bad blogger mommy didn't have any chance to take pictures because I had to nurse baby right away after being seated there. I had to ask hubs to get foods for me, all I can do was to use my right hand with the chopsticks as baby and mommy were both eating the same time. After eating everybody went home and that concluded our Sunday.
