Christening

My Little Planet was Christened on Saturday and what a party we had with friends and family! Doesn't she look older than 2 years and 8 months here?

She is adorable! What's the christening like in a Catholic church?

For a Catholic ceremony it was actually very straightforward and simple, with good humour. A lovely day. We had about 20 guests - ranging from athiests and agnostics to Hindus and Jews, so it was a very ecumenical day!

She's only 2 1/2? How funny that you waited that long - makes me feel much better about myself, as I am currently planning little L's Christening. She'll be 2 in April :)

Yes, most people sort out Christenings and naming ceremonies in the baby's first year. I was very late! The positive side was that she didn't cry at all when the priest put oil and water on her, and she was extremely intrigued by everything so I'm glad she was older. She's been telling all her little friends about it.

She does look older and very VERY pretty!

The general consensus in real life is that she looks a year older - so 3.5 years. It's not that she's tall or big (she's average height for a 2 year old and also very petite) it's just her face looks leaner and older and also her expressions and the way she talks (complex sentences, large vocabulary, very confident).

I agree that she looks pretty - she IS very pretty :-)
