58: First Beach Trip | June 12th - 19th Seagrove Beach, Florida
59: You had a GREAT time on your first trip to the beach. Your favorites included playing in your baby pool on the sand, the big pool, letting the waves hit you, and most of all...eating sand.
60: We got there and went straight down to the beach... | Not sure what to think about the sand... | Hmm...this feels pretty good... | Mommy...what do you think?
61: I think it looks....YUMMY! | First steps in the ocean... | First nap on the beach... | Already a great beach baby!
62: Most mornings, you would eat breakfast on the porch, play, then take a nap inside. When you woke up, we went to the beach and you sat on the shore line and ate sand and played in the water. Next, you played in your baby pool, chewing on every toy and splashing around. You ate your lunch on the beach and took a nap under the tent. After napping we went to the big pool and then went inside to bathe and get ready to eat again! What a life!
63: David, you are such a happy and laid back baby. Everyone enjoyed you being on this trip. On the way to and the way home from the beach...you slept the entire trip! You slept in a pack n play and slept all night each night. You still have never met a stranger and whether it was a trip to the outlets to shop or to Seaside for ice cream, you were happy and content. We were so glad that you were able to spend time with your great aunts, uncle, and cousins. We love that you love the beach!

72: Baptism June 26th, 2011
73: Your baptism was a very special morning. Your Sassy made you a beautiful gown to wear. You fell asleep before the ceremony and slept through it, only raising your head a little when Mr. Robbie placed the water on your head. Mrs. Carmela did a special children's sermon and you woke up and smiled and laughed. She talked about how even though waiting for you was so hard, we never stopped talking to God. We are all so blessed.
74: Sassy stitched your name and baptism date in the slip of your gown | The Sacrament of Baptism The covenant promise made to Abraham is made to all believers and their children who not only have an interest in the covenant, but a right to the seal of it, and to the outward privileges of the church under the gospel. It is through infant baptism that we receive children into the life of the visible church, distinguished from the world, and united with believers into the covenant family. As with circumcision in the Old Testament, baptism marks a child as set apart to God and engaged to Christ. We agreed to these questions:
75: Do you claim God's covenant promises on David's behalf, and do you look in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ for his salvation as you do for your own? Do you understand that baptism is not a magical ceremony, in itself gaining for David the grace of Christ, but do you acknowledge his need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ and the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit. Do you at this moment declare before our covenant-keeping God that, relying on his faithfulness, you will raise David, by example and word, to trust in Christ alone, live for Christ first and love Christ's church? | The congregation agreed to undertake the responsibility of assisting us in the Christian nurturing of you. | DPH
76: July 4th 2011
77: First Independence Day
