Special Day



We baptized the children today. It was an amazingly beautiful and special event. We were surrounded by our dearest friends and the godparents for all 4 of our kids were present (see pic). It took an awful lot of coordinating and so much love to pull this together. So many special moments. Tortuga and Corazon were the only two who understood a little of what it meant and they were both so excited about the ceremony. They were very serious in listening to the minister as she spoke and when she baptized them their expressions were pricessless. Tortuga said it was his "best day ever!" His behavior was awesome. Pollito seemed to be taking it all in and got very quiet and serious. Milagro listened attentively as she was baptized and when I picked her up to hug her she excitedly said "agua" and pointed to her head. Then at the end of the prayer she shouted "AMEN!" :-) The most moving was Corazon. As she was baptized her eyes filled with tears and when she came to hug me she just held on tight and the tears were streaming down her face. She was clearly touched in a way we have not seen too often. My little girl has come such a long way!

What a beautiful memory. You two and your children have come a long way. I love moments like this!
Question-I am trying to get a blog going for my daughter like you did for yours. How did you set it up so that it didn't change your profile, etc. Did she make a separate google acct or ????
Thanks-
