Happy Baptism Day, Sebastian!

We had the great blessing of celebrating Sebastian's baptism today with family and friends. What a great joy! Deacon David celebrated for us, and Patrick and Sarah Williams are his Godparents.

Our newly baptized boy in his gown with his rosary Daddy made him. He sure smells good!

His cake

These two were looking forward to being relieved of their Lenten sacrifice of desserts for the day. Can you tell?

 A little Lita time afterwards
 I will have many more photos to come soon. A sweet friend of ours usually photographs the baptisms for us, the only hard part is that we have to wait for all the beautiful photos. It is sure worth it though!

2 weeks

Sebastian turned two weeks yesterday evening, and he had his checkup this morning. He weighed 8 lbs 12oz (8 oz more than birth weight) and was in the 65 percentile for height and weight and the 98th percentile for head size. Typical baby of ours...they all have big heads! It was quite a morning. Apparently he has exceptional clotting abilities because he had his heel pricked for the newborn screen, but it clotted before she could get enough blood. So we had to wait 15 minutes and do it again. Then he still had to be pricked a third time! Poor little guy was so worn out by all the poking and prodding that as soon as the last one was finished he fell right to sleep and didn't even wake up when I buckled him in the car seat! Here he is, glad to be home...

There is always a waiting list for holding time around here! This boy is well-loved!

Oldest and youngest

Allia certainly has a way with Sebastian. She has a knack for calming him down that only Mommy can beat. ;) Aunt Karen took this cute photo of him yawning and Allia laughing, open-mouthed, at him.

One week old!

This guy sure likes to sleep so far. It has made our first week with him very peaceful. I am trying not to get spoiled, but it sure would be nice if he keeps this up!

Look alikes

Throughout my pregnancy, Allia kept saying how she wanted this baby to look like her. Each of the other children has a match - two redheads, two blondes. One of the first things I said after Sebastian was born was, "Allia will be so happy." He looks so much like her as a newborn! It is funny after 10 years to have a baby that looks so much like the one I gave birth to so long ago. Of course, Allia is thrilled!
