Easter Baby

April 5, 2013

Sage was baptized on Easter morning at the 9 am mass. James is in a pre-school program two days a week that starts at 9 am and so far, since Sage has been born, we have arrived to preschool no earlier than 9:25. 9 am is not a time we are capable of arriving places. Sometimes we can be on route to places by 9 am. Sometimes. However, anything is possible with the Lord on your side, and we did make it to the church with minutes (not many. Only one, actually) to spare. Our children were not well groomed. Both James and Jasper woke up with the worst and most untamable hair I have ever seen on either of them. Also, I put Jasper in overalls and a nice shirt, but then he insisted on wearing his gum boots and it was hard to tell if we were heading to a baptism or a barn dance. Our friends Andrea and Michel were Sage’s Godparents, and they have four kids so there was a lot of “activity” up around the baptismal font. At one point, a hotwheels car came flying out of the mob of children. Sage slept through the whole thing despite having had an entire pitcher of cold (holy) water poured over his head. He probably thought one of his brothers was behind it and decided to play dead.

I was on it enough to bring the camera, not on it enough to have someone make use of it. Sorry grandparents. Thankfully, a friend snapped some proof of the event with her iphone. I think that’s what happens after the third child. You don’t lovingly document their milestones. You try, if possible, to collect proof that they existed.

As for the rest of Easter, J.D. set up a little Easter scene similar to the one I made last year – you know, the true meaning and all that. Four minutes after they woke up, Jasper had turned it into a car ramp and James had compiled a list of awesome places I should hide eggs.

    That line is sure to become a classic: after the third child one simply tries to collect proof that they existed! how true.

    gorgeous pictures
    just after the birth of our third we were discussing how on earth we could juggle scedules to get to mass. I decided to just stay home when our three year old came running out of his bedroom, still half asleep, yelling, “Jesus says COME!”
