Cutest and most awkward pictures ever all in one post.

by Elizabeth on August 5, 2013

Saturday evening we celebrated my niece, Claire’s, baptism. I realize this picture isn’t of Claire or anyone being baptized for that matter but I really like it.

The best part of this adorable picture below is that it wasn’t staged. Robby is one of Noah’s two favorite people in the world. His other favorite person is a little red-headed three year old whose name starts with “A” and ends with “bigail”.

Happy baptism day to Claire! According to the priest we should celebrate baptism days just like birthdays? I think I can handle more cake in my life.

Anna and Connor! Because I really like them. I told Connor to take notes because he’s up next but he chose to sleep instead. Babies…

Claire’s turn!

This was our first and only godparent duty of the ceremony: putting on her bib.


We celebrated with lots of food (recipes coming soon) at my in-laws’ house afterwards.

I am fully aware that this is the most awkward photo ever. I promise this is not my first time holding a baby.

The night ended with a pajama party and some more cupcakes :-) Robby was a little perturbed it was taking so long for the second round of cupcakes to be delivered. Don’t know who he learned that from!

Have a great Monday!


What’s the best part of your upcoming week?!

Best part of my upcoming week: We are running a race that ends at a seafood festival at the lighthouse that Matt proposed to me. I can’t wait!

Those cupcakes look amazing…!

It’s hard to choose my favorite/best part of the upcoming week, because this week is super exciting! Dinner and margaritas with the girls tonight for Margarita Monday, watching The Bachelorette finale with dinner and wine tomorrow night with my friend Holly, and then this weekend my sister comes home from a summer in Texas- we’re celebrating her birthday early before she goes to Europe this semester. So much family and friends stuff going on, so I’m excited!

Looking forward to a long run with a friend this coming weekend-much needed!

Best part of the upcoming week – relaxing. Haha, that’s so boring. I got to go home last weekend and it was so fun, so I think that was the highlight of the week!

I can’t believe how many adorable kids you have in your extended family. It’s kind of a joke! Must be good genes ;).

Love your dress! You look beautiful! My summer classes ended on Friday, so I plan on thoroughly enjoying myself these next 3 weeks until Fall semester starts (my last one!). I plan on doing lots of working out without time restraints, organizing the house a bit, laying out and reading non-school related material, and shopping/browsing. Hope you have a great week!

Such adorable photos!
And I can’t get enough of the babies hand holding. So darn precious.
I also love your dress.

Okay you’re right… that seriously is one of the most adorable pictures ever. I’m talking frame-worthy here :P And does it make me horribly geeky to admit that I’m most looking forward to studying new material this week? I can’t help it! I love what I’m learning :D

Aww cute babies- love the holding hands pic. You look lovely, not awkward. Now me holding a baby is something I typically refuse- too much responsibility! so I couldn’t imagine how I’d look!

The best part of this week is that I’m on vacation on the Outer Banks!

The best part of this week….. I am not sure I can pick one best thing. Although today is my husbands first day of his General Surgery Rotation and I am so excited to hear how it went because this is the area he wants to go into. I hope he likes it as much as he thinks he is going to!

Umm, so how did your family end up with so many cute little babies?! The picture of Noah and Robby is precious. Totally frame worthy!
