Gabriel still smells like chrism from his baptism, and I love it! Too bad that Michael thinks the chrism makes Gabriel smell like body odor. 🙁
We had a beautiful baptism on Sunday. We bought Gabriel a little white outfit and little shoes with embroidered crosses on them. He looked absolutely angelic–and tan. I would describe my skin as an uncommonly fair, white porcelain color. Gabriel looks like a little Italian beach boy!
We prayed so hard that Gabriel would behave during the baptism–and guess what? Despite 5:30pm (the time of the baptism) being his most fussy time of day, he didn’t cry at all during the baptism! Talk about the hand of God being present! 🙂
