Meghan's Baptism

Holding Meghan

My sister had a daughter, Meghan, in June 2007.  I have many nephews and nieces, and I love them all and have a special bond with each of them.  But I felt a close connection with Meghan, right from the first time I saw her, when she was only a few hours old.  Perhaps it's because I'm older and (hopefully) more mature than I was when my other nephews and nieces were born, perhaps it's because I knew I'd miss 18 months of her life while I'm away, or perhaps it's because now I'm next in line to have a child (gasp) ... I don't know why.  Anyway, my sister recognized this too, and honored me by asking if I'd be Meghan's Godfather.  To which I agreed, happily.  My sister and (probably more so) her husband are great procrastinators, and had not yet even had a Baptism for Meghan's older brother (Braedon, he just turned three) so I was once again surprised when they had the Baptism (for both Braedon and Meghan) before I left - 4 days before, to be exact.

There is also a picture in here of Matthew, my Godson (one of my brother's sons).  I was 16 when he was born. :D
