A special day...

Yesterday we had Liam baptised.

It was such a beautiful day. It was something we did for Richard's parents as they won't be here in Australia to see Liam grow up, and we thought this was a special thing to do for them while they were here on holidays.

It was such a big day and poor little Liam was soooo tired at the end of it.

We had his christening with four other kids at a church in Coogee and there was another little boy called Liam who sat behind us. He was a twin and his sister was so cute.

Liam decided to lose it during the ceremony. His silk suit was a bit restrictive and he's a wriggly little man, so I had to race down the aisle and get a bottle for him.

It was such a special day. Saying that though, if Liam wants to shave his head and become a monk one day, I won't be offended. Religion and faith are such important beliefs and his may be different to his parents.

It just seemed to cement our little family and create another beautiful memory. I admit, we did shed a few tears.

Happy Christening Day Liam, we love you so so much.
