A Child of God

Second Son was baptized last Monday. We were so pleased to be able to arrange everything all the grandparents (and one great-grandmother) could attend, even though it meant having the baptism in our old parish where the air-conditioning had not been on all day during a record-breaking heat wave. Father skipped a few of the optional sections so we wouldn't melt, but Second Son settled right down after the holy water and the chrism. That's what we like to see!

You can almost see all of his gown in this picture. I just love it! My sister's mother-in-law made it for First Son and all four children have worn it.

Special thanks to his wonderful godparents who not only suffered through the heat with us, but brought an amazing cake and wonderful home-made mints for the celebration!


  1. Congratulations! And may I say, you are looking great! I haven't been able to comment much lately as I am usually holding baby while at the computer.

  2. H of B, I have the same problem. It takes forever to type a comment with only one hand! (That's why I haven't been posting too much recently either.)

    Thanks for the compliment. I was just thinking today that I feel pretty great. It's amazing what two weeks without a baby in your belly can do for a woman!


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
