Cooper's Baptism

With friends and family gathered near, today we celebrated the Baptism of our son, Cooper Alton.

Big Sister Madison participated in the service by leading the congregation in a prayer.

 We (Rob and I) along with Cooper's godparents (Tyler and Heather and their daughters Gabbie and Alexandra, big brother Trey was not with them) joined Pa for the ceremony.
 Pa- asking for the commitment and support of the parents
 Cooper and Pa- sharing a moment (empathy for the cold water on his head)
 Celebrating the newest "lamb"
 So glad to have the support of our parents with us on this special day
 Cooper's great grandparents, Omi and Opi, were able to make the trip from Chicago
 Cooper's Godparents- Tyler and Heather
 Our son- what a blessing and gift from God
 Cooper wore the same baptism gown as his older sisters (and his mom)

After the ceremony we returned to our house to share a meal together.
