Bradley's Best Baptism Birthday

How is that for alliteration?  I love it.

So, yes, Bradley turned 8 today.  For his birthday he wanted to get baptized.  As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe age eight is the age of accountability and the age when a person is first eligible for baptism.  Basically children are innocent before they reach this age which can be a confusing concept for a parent because children of all ages can be quite naughty and annoying.  However, there is something about eight year olds that changes.  I think it's an age when the mind matures and is able to make more conscious decisions between right and wrong.  I noticed it with Emily.

Bradley had a great day.  I have to say, having a boy baptism is so much easier than a girl one because you don't have to worry about a white dress and what to do with the wet hair after.  Here are some pictures:
