Baptism/3 months old
Somerset is 3 months old today. What a blessing she has been! She is still pretty demanding and loves to be held all the time, but she loves to smile and coo and that makes uo for all the rough patches. I still maintain that she is easier than Leo, but unlike Leo, she is very sensitive to any changes in her environment and will cry at the drop of a hat and she likes being held even more than he did. She is also a bit less active, but her legs are always in motion. She still doesn't give me long stretches of sleep at night and gets up twice (12:30-1:30 a.m. and 3:30-4:30 a.m.) Luckily she usually is up a short time and then goes back to bed (with us still....ugggg!).
Leo and Somerset were baptized on December 19th and it was a wonderful event. Pastor Scott had some very meaningful words and welcomed our children into our church. Both Leo and Somerset were as well behaved as I could have hoped for. Leo saw Grandma in the congregation and yelled, "Grandma," which made everyone laugh. He also held tight to his toy car and Pastor Scott joked that Leo's car was going to be baptized too. Summer was asleep most of the time , but woke up just in time for Pastor Scott to gently wash her head with water. At the end, Pastor Scott held both kids , one in each arm, and walked them up and down the aisle for the congregation to see. It was so beautiful.
After the baptism, Leo went back to the nursery and he declared, "my baptism is almost gone," meaning the water had almost dried. He's a funny little guy.
