Leo's Baptism

Leo was baptized today. He was wearing the same baptismal gown that Dru wore, with just a few masculine alterations. Leo was such a good baby during the service. He even laughed while being blessed. When they ask the children of the congregation to come forward and greet the newly baptized it is really emotional. They are usually allowed to touch the babies but now can only say "Welcome" or "Jesus Loves You" because of the H1N1 flu. It is still really sweet. Julie's brother and wife, Mike and Vicki, are Leo's god parents.

Family and friends came to celebrate after the service for lunch and cake.

Though he won't remember today , I hope he will always know how much he is loved.

Goodbye to 3438

After only 19 days on the market, we sold our townhome (it was priced to sell). Julie and I moved in Labor Day weekend of 2000. We have had so many memories here, it will be sad to leave. Because it only has 2 bedrooms we have now outgrown the space and are excited to be moving. We have spent the last 9 years making this place our own. I can only hope the new owner will take good care of our house. We close on our new house October 30th. I don't plan to post pictures of the new house until after we close, just to be safe.

Leo's Adoption

Today was Julie's adoption of Leo. It went smoothly and now both kids have 2 "legal" parents! Though this was a momentous day our feelings of our family dynamics haven't changed. I am glad to finally have the adoption behind us and no longer have worries about whether or not it would be granted. We want to thank everyone for your kind thoughts and words.
