My Sunday Best - Annika's Baptism and Name Pronounciation

Linking up with Rosie for My Sunday Best!

Annika got baptized today, so naturally we have lots of pictures!

I always find baptisms hard to know what to wear for.  After all, I am certainly not looking my best, nor my skinniest at only 1 month or so post-partum.   And you KNOW there will be lots of pictures!

Times like this, you just have to get over yourself and find something to wear!

So, that's what I did.

My eyes look so odd in this photo.  Oh well.  Humility. 

And here's a whole family picture with the godparents.  Don't you just love Greta and John's matching crossed arms?  They just LOVE posting for pictures...can't you tell?

And one more, during the actual baptism.


If you were wondering how to pronounce Annika....we pronounce it Ah-nik-A (so it rhymes with Monica)  I realize that different people will say it differently, and we were expecting a few people to say Anne-nika, but what I was NOT expecting was for people to pronounce it  Ah-----Nika with a BIG PAUSE between the Ah and Nika sound.  To me, that just seems odd, but I did some research and apparently it is another pronunciation.  Who knew?

Anyway, that's all for now.
