Y officially became “Christian” last Sunday, September 9. I placed “Christian” within quotation marks because I don’t really believe one becomes a Christian by being baptized as a baby. Babies don’t have any idea what it means to be a Christian. I believe that babies are born children of God and should be brought up by their parents as one. When they understand what it means to be a real Christian, that’s the time they should be baptized.
But because I’m living with my Catholic parents in their house, I abide to their desire, and their desire is for Y to be baptized as a baby. I figure there’s no harm in doing that, so I blew a portion of my salary for the celebration. No regrets because Y was such a dapper young man!
Here are a few photos from the event:
Y fell asleep shortly before we went home. My sister and I had so much fun opening the gifts. Thank you, everyone!
