The Blessing

"Hurray for getting my blessing!" That's what I imagined he was thinking, either that or thank goodness for a clean diaper. Little Tristan was blessed on Sunday the 9th of March and was a real champ. He had quite the cool outfit on(Paul wouldn't allow me to dress him in one of those traditional blessing gowns-he had a real issue with our SON wearing a gown, blessing or not). We had found this quilted little outfit at a cute little shop in NY, and Paul thought it was great b/s it looked like a cross between a chef's coat and a space suit. To most people this wouldn't be a good thing, but Paul was very excited about it.








Here I am with the little man. This picture actually isn't one of my favorites of him (I don't think it really looks like him), but I thought I'd put one in that had someone in our family other than him. I usually stay away from the camera, but that day I had taken a shower and wore something other than sweats-it was definitely a momentous occasion!

He's beautiful Holly! I think that first picture makes him look like he's in karate class saying "hi-ya!". Very cute.
