Ben, In Drag

Today is my baptism. I'm not sure what it is, but Mommy tells me that it officially makes me a member of the Catholic Church. I don't know what kind of benefits I get as a member because everyone seems pretty cool with me going to church right now, I don't see how things would change if I was a member. Maybe they'll let me go in line and get one of those wafer things...they look yummy.

I got this outfit from a granduncle from far away. I guess it's really nice, but I think it's for girls, because it's a dress. Grandma tells me that in the old days all babies wore something like that, and even showed me a picture of Papa wearing a similar thing. I dunno, I prefer pants. When I have the dress on my feet get stuck in it when I'm kicking around.

I'm really excited for today, I guess a lot of people are coming out to see me! Also, Mommy says that I get to take a bath in the church, and that if I stay quiet and don't cry she'll be really happy. I'll try my best, but if it has to happen, I'll make myself heard!

Anyway, here's me in my dress.

Those baptism gowns are very British Royal Family!
