Baptism, WALKING and plans for Birthday

Our “little” monkey is going to be 10 months old tomorrow, Can you believe that??

He is growing up so fast, it’s unbelievable.

My little brother was able to make it to the US and we baptized our sweet boy on June 18th at Saint Martin’s Church.

It was a very simple and just family type of thing. When I say just family I really mean it. It was the three of us, my parents and the Godparents and my little brother’s girlfriend.

Patryck got to wear the infamous 60 years old gown. This gown has a lot of tradition behind it. My father wore it for his baptism, all of his brothers did as well and then my mom decided to make it a tradition and baptize us with it as well.

My happy Boy !!

Well, Patryck is the first great-grand baby and he got to wear it as well. Of course I had to buy something for him to wear before and after. I was not going to let him run around with such delicate gown.

He did great at the church. He kept “singing” to the priest and just looking around and wanting to play with everyone. He did not like the cold water in his head but he did stop crying shortly after.

Patryck had been standing and taking a couple of steps here and there but he walked, with ease, over 7 feet on June 22nd. He did this multiple times. It’s been amazing watching him challenge himself and go further and further.

Needless to say he’s walking all over the house now. We have to be really careful with him because sometimes he gets excited and just takes off too fast and you know that such combination is not a good idea.

I just can’t believe that he’s so big already. Where did time go??

I can’t even believe what I’m about to say. We are planning his first birthday ! WHAT???

Tom and I talked about this and I could not forgive myself if my grandmother did not get to meet Patryck and since she can’t fly then we have to go to her.

So, with that being said, we are going to celebrate his birthday in Brazil.

We got the tickets and we are ready to go. I’m very excited and a bit scared at the same time.

I haven’t been there in a while and there’s SO MUCH to plan and get done all the way from here. I’m sure it will all come together but it’s just nerve wracking to say the least.

I better get to bed, It’s late and I have work pretty early tomorrow morning.

I’ll post some pics later.
