Poppy's baptism was on Sunday and everything went really well. She was great during the unusually long mass before the baptism and although she didn't seem to appreciate having water poured over her head (see picture below), she did great for the baptism too. For the ceremony, she wore my family's christening gown that was made from my great-grandmother's wedding dress, as well as a garment Marc wore during his baptism. There was one other baby being baptized at the same time and her name was Lola. So the priest kept addressing "Poppy and Lola", which made everyone on our side of the church giggle each time.
...Godparents, Jeff and Andrea...
...definitely did not like having water poured on her head...
After church, everyone came over for a "Korean" celebration. We served our favorite Korean dishes; kimbap (korean sushi), chicken bulgogi, jap chae (noodles), fish cakes and kimchee. It was everyone's first time having Korean food and it seemed like just about everyone liked it. We tried to keep the party as small as possible so that Poppy wouldn't be too overwhelmed, but apparently it was inevitable. The fact that she didn't sleep well the night before and then the baptism was during her nap-time didn't help put her in the greatest of moods. So for most of the afternoon she clung to my chest and looked at everyone like, "why are you eating my fish cakes? why are you playing with my toys? why are eating my cake? when are you all going to leave?".
