Andrew's Baptism

"Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9

We had the wonderful opportunity to have Andrew baptized last week at Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis.  John grew up in this church, we spent our first years of marriage attending there, and his amazing father has been a Pastor there for many many years.   It was an incredibly special day, and we were so blessed to have our family and friends to support and encourage us.  

Andrew's grandmother (John's mother) made his beautiful gown.  
It was such a special gift, one we will be forever grateful for.

Handing Andrew over to his "Papa" to be baptized!  
This was such a memorable and sweet moment.

My dear friend, Aubrey, and her family made the drive from Nashville for the big day! 
Thank you Aubs for everything!
Love our little family!

And my wonderful and thoughtful parents!

John's lifelong best friend, Spencer, and his little boy, Max!  
This was the first meeting of the babies, a moment their dads have been looking forward to their whole lives!  They are just 2 months apart, and I know they will be the best of friends!
All the family..
and all the grandchildren.
Andrew was a little over the excessive picture-taking ;)
My Memphis besties/mamas!!

So thankful for this unforgettable moment in Andrew's life, and overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends. 
John and I are forever blessed and honored to be his parents!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above"
James 1:17
