When the child is old enough to make the decision for themselves and know why they want to be baptized then they can be baptized. It's a different age for every person since not everyone is ready for it at the same time.
Us too. Although I am not attending church now so my daughter wasn't even dedicated. But I was when I was a baby. I was baptized when i was 13 and made the personal choice to do it.

My MIL keeps bugging me to get our daughter baptized as well. I don't think she realizes she can keep bugging me and bugging me and it's not gonna happen!!
