Our beautiful daughter was baptized this past weekend! (Actually the week before… took me longer to get this posted than I was hoping
We planned her baptism to be after the morning Mass on Saturday, normally our parish has baptisms all together one Sunday a month, right in the middle of the afternoon (naptime – all the meltdowns!) so we hoped this would be a little bit better. We made it even a little early for Saturday daily 9 am mass, and after Mass Fr. William our associate pastor celebrated the baptism for Tessa and 2 other babies.
My sister Emma and her husband Jeff are Tessa’s Godparents, (in the picture below Emma is holding their son Gabriel, who is exactly 1 week older than Hugh). It took some counting but I think Tessa is their 7th? Godchild (so far) and if you know them you’ll agree they are a “easy pick” for Godparents because they are so loving and faithful and will surely help us in our responsibility as parents to help little Tessa reach her ultimate goal of Heaven one day!
I did finish the Baptism Gown in time (I won’t even say the last minute since it was at least 24 hours before the actual event) and although it was a little big for her, it worked perfectly and I am glad we have this keepsake for any future babies, and maybe even future generations of babies.
I just had to include this adorable picture of Clara and my youngest sister Meagan because it captures her personality (Clara’s).
Thanks for all the prayers!
