Mr. H’s Big Day

We had Mr. H baptized over the weekend. I was worried when we first arrived at church because he was a little fussy. We had to wake him to leave and I don’t think he was quite ready for the big event. Luckily he fell asleep in his godfather’s arms, and stayed asleep even through the water being poured on his head.

As with several of my kids, Mr. H shared his Baptism with his cousin. My sister-in-law also had a baby boy just about a month after I did. The boys looked so peaceful sleeping through the ceremony together.

My niece was only 4 months old when Mr. H was born. Then he was the youngest grandchild for exactly 32 days before #21 arrived. That’s right. There are twenty-one grandchildren on my husband’s side of the family…aged 13 and under. We were actually able to get a picture of all of them together at church on Saturday (with a daddy and a couple of uncles too).

I have written here before about how absolutely wonderful I think it is that my kids all have cousins to grow up with. I look forward watching this next group of kiddos and all the adventures they will have together.
