Baptism

Had a lovely day at baptism. Fionn was a wee Angel - sleeping all way through service - including the annointing on his head and holy water on his head as well. Then I put him in a sling for the party afterwards. That way folks didnt rush to go try and pass him around. He was awake and looking at folks and then fell asleep. I'm knackered but we had great craic - 44 friends joined us for the shindig. The church had coffee and cake after the service with a cake from us and then at Effies restaurant we toasted with beer and appetizers and lunch :-)

Photo here is my Dad, my Mum, Jan, Fionn, myself and Jan's dad from left. Jan's mum couldnt make it with her back being so bad but she was there with us in spirit and he was wrapped in the shawl and hat she knitted for him.

Congratulations! There's a tradition that goes like this, "never wake a baby after his/her baptism, because the he's in prayer." So the longer the sleep, the more prayer he's doing.
