Welcome to the Household of God

 That's what the cake the church made for Jack (and the other little girl Christened) said.  And it was so yummy.  That's because it was a Wegman's cake.

The Christening was beautiful.  Jack wore the same gown that my dad, his brother and sister, me, my sister, and all my cousins wore. 

During the service, Jack was getting a little fussy, so I took him out to feed him before the baptism.  After he ate, he passed out.  He slept through all of the ceremony until Father Bill took him to pour the water on his head.  Then he cried.  But you probably would too if you were sound asleep and wake up to some stranger pouring water on your head!  He was fine when it was over.  And since he had his little power nap, he smiled at everyone who would look at him. 

Jack's godparents are my sister Abbe, and Bobby's brothers Andrew and Jon.  Unfortunately, Jon was not able to make the Christening since he had to work.  He's an airline pilot and getting time off is tricky.

The weather was beautiful in NY.  We really enjoyed our time home.  I love that everyone gets to see Jack in person and snuggle him.  He gives the best snuggles.  And one more picture of all of us.  Of course there were a lot of paparazzi there, Jack's slightly famous.  In case you are curious about the shoes, my mom goes to China for work and she got these at an ancient Chinese village.  They were made by an 85 year old woman and by wearing them he will have a long life.
