God's Own Child...Delaney Fay Ward
Our littlest one was baptized on New Year's Day at our dear church, First Trinity. Like her sisters, Delaney wore the baptismal gown that Grandma Deni made her from the material of my confirmation dress. Laney's godparents are Matt & Erica Wilson who we originally met in Lutheran Student Fellowship at the same church. They (and their little sweetheart son Johnny and baby #2 expected this summer) now live in Hanover, PA which thankfully is close enough for a weekend trip to Pittsburgh. Jonathan is actually Matt's godfather as Matt was baptized and confirmed at First Trinity as an adult several years ago.
Big Sister Carrigan did not let a baptism distract her from the current task at hand--potty-training.
(Like any good Pittsburgh fan, Delaney then came home for naps and changed into her Steeler gear.)
Since the holiday, weather, and overall travel logistics made it too hard for most of our family to be there, we look forward to have a "Affirmation of Baptism" ceremony (and party!) for Delaney in Michigan in February. Details to come. We'd love to have you join us.
