Today was Mother's Day. It was also the day we had E baptized. S and I are both
lapsed Catholics so we decided to add saving the kid's soul to our ever-growing list of things to do before we move.
The day started out like any other Sunday with a quick run in the park, but it was followed up with a special Mother's Day picnic of bagels and coffee. After that, we chased E around the playground and pushed him in the swings for a bit before taking him home for a much-needed nap. Once he napped and we all got dressed in our Sunday best, we headed over to the church. E let us know he was not in the mood to be carried and insisted we let him walk instead. We happily obliged.
We arrived at the church, chatted with the priest for a few minutes, and let the little guy run around to burn some energy before the ceremony. Don't worry, the church was empty. He wasn't disturbing anyone but the Holy Spirit. He did, however, stop briefly to pose for this adorable pic.

All in all, it was a fun day. The weather was perfect, everyone was in a joyful mood, and best of all, no cranky toddler meltdowns. That's the best a mom can hope for on Mother's Day.
