Not really, but that's a far more interesting reason for not posting since Saturday than the truth, which is that I just haven't had a spare moment.
On second thought, I really have run away and joined the circus. It's called the Renaissance Festival. But that's beside the point entirely.
Because the point is: My baby is baptized!!!
Sunday morning, after Mass, in front of 31 (seriously) of our closest friends and family, our Priest poured water over the head of my precious little boy. He anointed him with the oils. He blessed him. Miles' godmother, Stacey, held his baptism candle, lit from the Easter candle on Pentecost. His godfather, Chris, put the white tabbard over his head. And dozens of pictures were taken.*
And the entire time, Miles was calm. Serene. Happy.
My little angel baby has now been welcomed into our Church, and has received the gift of the Holy Spirit. On the day the Church celebrates the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The day could not have been more perfect.**
*I don't have a single one, by the way. My camera died, and no one has sent me their copies, yet. (Hint, hint)
**Except, of course, if I had pictures of it. (HINT, HINT) :)
