Because both of our families live out of state, Virginia's baptism was a weekend affair with guests traveling to Connecticut from New York, Maryland and Florida. Heath's sister Nichole organized a dinner in a private room at a local restaurant the night before the baptism. We really enjoyed getting to spend some extra time with our family. We also loved getting to share Virginia with some of our family members that had either never met her or hadn't seen her since she was in the hospital.
Below are some more photos from Virginia's baptism day:
Lastly, we owe Heath's parents a huge thank you for all of their help for the last 2 weeks. They have been caring for Virginia while I have been at work and were also a huge help in preparing for Virginia's baptism brunch.
We don't say it enough, but the support of both of our parents in the past year has been unbelievably important to us. The good days, the bad days, the celebrations and the frustrations, they have been by our side through it all. Most people recognize that Heath and I went through alot in the past 9 months, but I'm not sure that people realize the countless hours that our parents spent at the hospital, the countless phone calls that they made, the miles that they drove, the meals that they made, the tears that they shed. Their love for Virginia is SO evident and we are so thankful for their support.
To Moma, Bob Bob, Neno and Papa, Virginia loves you very much!
