Baptized in the Water of Life

Zachary had a very BIG weekend. Saturday was his Baptism at Immaculate Conception. Fr. Don was so gracious to come down and perform the ceremony. It was wonderful to have our family and friends there to welcome Zachary into our faith community. Uncle Dana and Aunt Jodee were kind enough to agree to be Zachary's Godfather and Godmother. Fr. Don did a great job during the ceremony (as he always does), and we were very pleased to have him baptize our first child after marrying us five years ago. We had everyone over to the house afterward for some wonderful food that Mommy, Grandma, and Mimi all worked very hard to prepare. All-in-all, it was a wonderful day, and Zachary was great throughout. He was amazingly calm and not fussy at all even though he missed out on his afternoon nap. He must have known it was a special day, and did his best to entertain all who attended!
Mimi and Papa arrived on Monday, and Grandma arrived Thursday. Uncle Dana arrived Friday, and the house was full for most of the weekend. Zachary was a wonderful host, and enjoyed all the new faces to laugh and play with. He even learned a few new tricks from Grandma while she was here! Friday was Mommy's birthday, and she opened her presents and had cake yesterday to celebrate.
Uncle Dana had to head back home yesterday, and Grandma left for the airport a few hours ago. Zachary had a wonderful time with them while they were here and can't wait to see them again soon! Tomorrow, we are all off to Zachary's spinal defects clinic for his three month visit and a thorough examination. We are excited to see Zach's progress, and are optimistic his results will all be wonderful. We hope you enjoy the pictures, and we thank everyone for all their well wishes and support over Zach's big weekend. We welcome our "Little Fighter" into a life of Faith and Love with open arms and open hearts. Much Love and Blessings to you All - Brian + Kimmie
