To say the least Jakob was so excited for this day. we have been preparing him for this day for a while and he had told everybody that his Uncle Brett was baptizing him. We waited one month after his birthday so everybody from out of town would be there and his Uncle Brett would be home from his mission. I took some extra time to memorize the sign for the baptismal prayer so Jakob would understand what was being said. As soon as it was time for Brett to "dunk" Jakob, Jakob knew just what to do and then proceded to go swimming! it was so funny. he is quite the entertainer. it was a very spiritual day.
after the baptism, we all went back to our house for some food and fun. Rob and Alex battled it out on guitar hero and we all got to watch! poor melanie took a spill on the basketball court and spent the rest of the day resting.
