Noah's Spiritual Birthday

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4

Noah has been asking us questions for a few weeks about wanting to make sure he was going to heaven and wanting to be baptized. After a few discussion about being baptized, we decided he was ready. The next step was for him talk to our youth pastor. After speaking with Noah, he too felt that Noah understood the commitment he was making.

He really wanted his daddy to baptism him so we had to wait another week for Mike to heal enough from his surgery. So today was the big day. Noah's favorite number is 4. Both times that he has played baseball his shirt number was #4. (without him picking that #) He realized this morning before we went to church that today's date is... you guessed it... the 4th! Cool huh?

So anyway let's get to the good stuff. Here is some video footage I took. It's very shaky at first (can't help it if mama was a little nervous... that is my baby up there ya'know!) but it does get better so keep watching cause it's a good one!

And here is my favorite picture... him coming out of the baptistery. Cold... wet... yet still beaming!
