I think since you two have different religions that you should wait and let them decide when they are old enough to do so. In the mean time both of you should teach them about both religions.

You are promising your god that that child will be faithful and follow that path. But, that's not your choice to make. It's the childs. And let's face it, a child can't make that disition. SO why do it at all? Let them choose their path when they are grown.
Catholic Baptism is not promising God that the child will be faithful and remain Catholic, one person cannot make that promise for another. Catholic Baptism washes away original sin and gives the child grace necessary for salvation. The promise the parents and godparents are making is to instruct the child in the Catholic faith.
Catholics have 7 sacraments, three of those (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) are called the Sacraments of Initiation. An adult person is not fully initiated into the Catholic Church until they have received all three sacraments. Confirmation is when the 'adult' child makes the decision to live their life as a Catholic.
