Baby's 1st Thanksgiving

The Little Man's 1st Thanksgiving
2011
Oh my gosh, the breast milk is going to taste like turkey!

Uncle Sam and his favorite little guy

Snoozing on Daddy for just a little bit

Mamie snuggling with the baby

Awake and ready to go

Preparing for the thanksgiving meal

Hanging out at Mamie and Pops' house

Such a cutie

A house full of family

I don't know why he is tasting Aunt Kelly's bracelet

Wide awake and happy, a rarity for the little guy

In his cute blue outfit

A half smile

Pops holding the little one

I could post pictures of him all day

Holding the little bear

So cute!

All nice and warm

Sleeping on Mommy

Uncle Kamerin and Sebastian in his Thanksgiving outfit, the front of the shirt says "I'm Stuffed," it was very cute.

Aunt Kelly had a lot of holding time :)

Christmas decorating here we come...

Sebastian's Baptism

Sebastian Henri Dean was baptized on November 17, 2011 at St. Luke Catholic Church, by Fr. Paul Gary :) We had an intimate small ceremony with just family present. Fr. Paul was wonderful to make such special accommodations for us, we wanted to make sure the germs were limited since Sebastian was a preemie.

Fr. Paul was the same priest that married Jonathan and I on October 22, 2010 and then baptized our son on November 17, 2011. We just love him, he is always so full of life and so wonderful at making sure everyone understands how and why the church does what it does.

Ok, unfortunately Kristyn and Patrick couldn't make it to the ceremony but let me point out the rest of my fabulous family who showed up for the ceremony.
Mamie, Samuel, Kamerin (Godfather), my handsome husband, little Sebastian, Me, Lilly, Kelly (Godmother), Katelynn, Emma, Pierce, and Pops.

Jonathan and I are very lucky to have Kamerin and Kelly as Sebastian's godparents, we know they will help him understand all there is to know about God and our part in this world.
The holy water, he is blessed :)

Such a great picture!

Lilly, she did so well during the ceremony, such a BIG girl!

The head of hair all soaked in oil, those blond locks were light and fluffy for days afterwards.

Kelly and I

Almost 5 weeks and counting :)

Sebastian is almost 5 weeks old! OMG time is flying...He is getting baptized today, so exciting! We are dressing him in the family baptismal gown, nothing like tradition.

For now, here are some pictures from the last 4 weeks:

The very beginning...Daddy got to visit in the NICU

Jonathan holding Sebastian for the first time, it makes me so sad that I missed all of it. When they tell you to prepare for anything during delivery, you never think you will miss it altogether cause you are in the ICU. I am glad that Jonathan got to see him and enjoy all those first moments!

Getting used to early life outside the womb

Welcome Home Little Man!

Home getting dressed in the morning, this is probably the first time he hasn't been screaming his head off during a simple diaper change.

All dressed in our cute outfit!

Sleeping on Daddy!

With Uncle Kamerin

Snug like a bug in the car

Not too happy but cuddling with Uncle Pierce

Meeting his cousin Lilly for the first time on Halloween

Daddy with the little guy

Trying the swing...that face lasted a whole five minutes

His eyes are open, this is not a sight we see often

I think they look alike :)

So cuddly and cute!

Love him in hats

Smile, dreams are nice

Such a cutie Pie

Goodbye for now...time to go get Baptized :)
