Easter baptism/picture bonanza

Good morning! Rainbow is still gorgeous and delightful, in case you were wondering:

March - April 2009 047

The Fishmaster enjoys holding him fairly well, except when he cuts loose with a noisy bm.

March - April 2009 024

He’s very smiley and happy and is making those irresistible, funny faces and chuckles.

March - April 2009 067

In fact, he’s pretty much a total treat. He is so very cuddly and funny, and he’s a gazer. When he wakes up at night for a feeding, he likes to just lay in bed and stare at me for awhile after, making funny little chuckles. heh heh heh uh uh uhhh huhuhuhuhuh… So far, there has been ZERO holding the baby while singing and pacing at night, which I seem to remember doing with the other boys. We’ve had a Fussy Baby before, and of course we loved him while he was going through that stage, but it sure is more pleasant to have a happy baby. He’s very, very easy to love.

****blissed out sigh****

On to the baptism!

Ladies outside the church on the way in. C, right beside me, is an adult adoptee and Rainbow’s godmother.

(Where’s Daddy J, you ask? Behind the camera, of course. I badly need to get him in front of the camera for some pics with his new son. He’s such a proud daddy.)

    Beautiful Christening! I loved watching his daddy gazing at him during the service.

    He is possibly the prettiest newborn I’ve ever seen.
