No joke, she might be harboring an otherworldly demon behind those chubby cheeks. Today was her Christening. We were very worried because it took place right smack dab in the middle of nap time and apparently the Catholic Church doesn't feel that my daughter's very delicate nap schedule warrants a time change for all the Baptisms in the congregation...whatever.

So we dress her up like a little princess bride and she looks sweet as pie, but about 30 seconds after we get into the church she starts wailing. She was so tired, but was so interested in everything around her that she wouldn't sleep...just cry and cry and cry. Andy had to walk around with her the entire ceremony until he finally got her to sleep.
About 5 minutes after she falls asleep we have to bring her to the font for them to pour water on her head. Yeah, that went over like a ton of bricks. Starts crying again. Andy got her back down, 5 minutes later they anoint her forehead with chrism...crying. Back to sleep. 5 minutes later some crazy bib thing we have to put over her head...crying. Such a nightmare.
So we drive around for an hour with her because she falls asleep in the car seat. We get into the restaurant and she sleeps about another 30 minutes, so I'm thinking "Sweet" she'll be in a good mood. Which she was for about an hour and a half and then she just got so annoyed of being passed around like a hot potato, that I just took her outside and walked with her. Then my mom came to relieve me and my aunt to relieve her until at 6:00 I finally admitted defeat and took her home missing the last hour of the party.
She was so tired. I put her in a quick bath, in her jammies, and then bottle. She usually falls asleep when drinking her bottle but she was so overtired at this point that it took about 15 minutes of rocking to get her down. Poor kid. So here are some shots of her special day.
