Yesterday we took Ethan to get baptized into the Catholic Church. The baptism took place at the Stanford Memorial Church. It was group baptism and there were 5 other children that joined Ethan in this rite. This was also the first time we attended mass as a family. Below is a video clip of part of the baptism where the priest poured consecrated water over Ethan's head. It was an amazing experience! Ethan was a bit overwhelmed however. He was the only baby in the group to cry and we had to take him outside for a bit during the mass. He was great during the actual ceremony however whenever it was his turn to be blessed, anointed, and baptized. =)

Mike came to attend the baptism with us. Afterwards Ethan enjoyed some major uncle/nephew bonding time.
