This bank holiday weekend has been a busy one for us, we finally got round to having our Christening! We umm-ed and ahhh-ed over having one for a long time as we’ve not really religious people but in the end tradition won out. So this weekend has been spent frantically sorting space and food for 60+ family members and then spending Sunday enjoying the fruits of our labour!
Unfortunately, for the first time in weeks the heavens opened on Sunday which meant our celebrations were confined to inside but that didn’t dampen the celebratory atmosphere. I’m a big believer that religion, whatever form it takes, is more about bringing people together and this weekend has certainly done that. We went back to the church where we got married which brought back so many memories of it’s own! It was wonderful to see all of the people who care most about our son in one place and, whilst we don’t think he really knew what was happening, he had a great time running up and down the aisle of the church and around my parents house afterwards. Never has a little boy been so spoilt!!
I found myself quite emotional about the whole thing last night. At times like this it strikes me just how lucky we are as a family to have so many people around us who care about us. I can’t believe our son gets to grow up with this many people to love him!! With the christening done, we roll pretty quickly in to the next big event… he turns ONE a fortnight today… I’m not sure I can cope with how quickly he’s growing up!
Soppy post over!
