Zane is growing like a weed: 23 3/4 inches long now and 11.7 pounds. He is just the right size for snuggling, just like his cousin Maggie I guess there isn't a wrong size for that. Maggie was very gentle with Zane, giving him lots of gentle pats and commandeering his swing for her own chaise lounge. It was a perfect fit and she could get in and out if it by herself.Here is the beautiful boy.
The Baptism ceremony was very nice; Zane wore a white satin gown (I sound like the Times)that was hand made by his Great Grandmother Baker years ago. Yes, it was a little bit feminine for the likes of his godfather and father but the women in the group (myself happily included) thought he looked beautiful. The Deacon who baptised him also gave a special blessing for protection and care during his upcoming surgery. The whole service was a blessing to all of us, not just to Zane (which was the point, after all); Blessings on his fair head. By the end of the day he was badly in need of a bath due to all the passing around from hand to hand and kiss to kiss on top of the Holy Oil used to anoint his head, chest and hands. Enough! Dunk that boy in the bathtub, the final baptism before bed..
