Meet baby Damien!
You know, Aunt Katie, you’re not supposed to drop me, right?? Right? RIGHT??????
From the look on his face, he clearly senses my lack of baby experience. Kids pick up on these things, you know.
Dave’s brother, Joe, and his wife, Anne Marie, recently welcomed their first child into the family. We traveled out to hot and smokey California last week for a family visit and for Damien’s Baptism. It was an honor for Dave to be asked to be Damien’s Godfather.
We both took Thursday and Friday off of work, and spent the extra time with Dave’s parents in Los Angeles. The last several times we have visited with them have revolved around whirlwind family events. While this visit included the Baptism, of course, it was nice to have a couple extra days to visit without too much chaos.
And now we are back in cool and lovely Chicago, with a whole extra vacation day!
