We've got a full-fledged sinless baby in our midst!
We finally had Nora baptized yesterday, the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, and now I feel as if a large burden of parental duty has finally been released and I can rest safely knowing my baby is "in"! But honestly, I couldn't help but feel good knowing that my baby is now part of our huge, crazy yet beyond interesting, holy yet complex Church while at the same time receiving the very personal graces through the sacrament. I love knowing that she's in God's hands and not just mine, phew we're all thankful for that!
Here she is pre-washed-clean-from sin, although she doesn't look it does she!
Is there anything cuter than a baby in a knitted bonnet? I think not.
This is the best family shot we could muster. I'm pretty happy we got all of us together in a photo to be honest.
And heres the rest of me familia. Can you get over the range of bizarro expressed we make?
I won't go into behavioural grades because lets just say I failed. Emotional breakdown was I! And I wore a sleeveless dress!
We partied and barbecued and drank margaritas all day yesterday with family! A fun party celebrating a beautiful sacrament and a beautiful baby! And today and completely exhausted and have barely moved from the couch. We're about to have a dinner consisting of popcorn and raspberries.
