Steven's Baptism 11.19.06

Steven was baptized yesterday by my Dad, or as we know him now, Pappa. It was so exciting and special to us that he performed the ceremony and introduced Steven into our covenant family. In true Wimberly style (wanting him to be as boyish as possible), we dressed him in his own white dress shirt, navy slacks, and tie. Steven was wonderful the whole service and very calm when Pappa sprinkled the water on his cute, hairy head.
Dad hands him off to Pappa.

Pappa introduces Steven to the congregation. He is reading a description of him that we wrote: "Steven is a happy, alert, and expressive little man with awesome hair."

I was going to ask you about the exact words of the description. I remember being extremely tickled when that was read in church.

Next time, I'll stick around and meet more of the family.
