"Mom! I just bath-tized myself!", he proudly exclaimed as the bubbles dripped off of his chubby cheeks.
In the weeks leading up to his baptism, he would ask me all kinds of questions, showing me that he was really thinking about his decision and what it would mean in his life. He asked me about repentance and exactly how one goes about repenting when you have done something wrong.
He was very ready for this day and he wanted to make sure that I was too. He kept asking me if I was going to cry at his baptism. I asked him, "Do you want me to?" "Yes", he would say with his cute little smile.
Now before we know it, he'll be preparing to leave on a mission!
Congratulations Ian! We love you!
