Jonas got baptized on Easter Sunday at our church, Most Precious Blood, in Denver. We are really grateful that Father Pat was willing to perform the baptism on this special day and before Jonas's big surgery. We're also grateful that our families were able to come out and join us for the celebration. Several students, friends, and other acquaintances were also in attendance.
Jonas looked adorable in his white outfit and cap. He wasn't quite sure what to make of all the people and commotion. He basically went into shutdown mode, sucked on his thumb, and clung close to us. So to everyone else, it looked like he behaved like a perfect little angel. But we knew he was pretty freaked out, and it was kind of sad. Only near the very end of Mass did he start acting more like himself, smiling and wanting to explore. He even tried to dunk his head back in the water when we took some pictures near the baptismal font after church, so I guess he didn't mind that part too much!
