Being baptized was exhausting for North West.

Kim Kardashian marked the start of daughter North West's second birthday on Monday by sharing photos of the fashionable tot's recent baptism. The sacrament took place when Kim and Kanye West were in Israel in April — and, as expected, North is adorable in the shots.

"Baptizing North in Jerusalem in an Armenian church with our new baby in my belly was so special," Kim, who announced her pregnancy earlier this month, wrote on Instagram. According to Israeli news reports, the ceremony took place at St. James Cathedral in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.

In a photo sure to show up in our Shameless Photo Gallery of North West, Kim is holding a snoozing North in her arms as Kanye looks on. "Sleeping beauty," Kim captioned the precious pic.

While Kanye wore all white (including jeans with a hole in the knee), Kim sported a beige dress that hugged her famous figure. She also wore a white veil for the religious ceremony. (So did Khloé, who was present to witness the blessed event as she is the child's godmother.)

Kim also shared a family shot of the trio, writing, "This was where Mary took Jesus to wash him off after he died on the cross."

As the couple's family grows, they have their work cut out for them in the baby name department. After picking North for their first (remember the story behind that?), there is already a lot of interest in what their second child's name will be — and speculation that it will be South.

"I don't like South West, though, because that's like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and be more... She has a better direction," Kim said during an interview with NPR that ran on Sunday. "So I wouldn't do that. I don't think we'll go with another direction. I mean, everyone keeps on saying South and I think it's so stupid. Stupidest thing ever and just ridiculous."

Though let's remember how she denied she'd be naming her first child North.

As for rumors she's having a boy, she isn't saying one way or the other.

"We actually haven't told anyone the sex," she said during the interview. "So I heard that we're having a boy. I heard that we're having twins. I heard that I'm not even carrying my own baby. I've heard so many things and most of that information is not true."

One thing is true: The sleeping North West is a precious sight.
