New Family

Yesterday we finally met the newest member of the family. Vincent’s cousin Tobias was born in March, but we just made it there yesterday in time for Tobias christening. It was a small gathering, and that was probably a good thing. Vince is not so used to sitting still so as it was only close family he was OK, I think… There was no crying or screaming during the ceremony at least, even though he did explore pretty much the whole church.

The actual christening, Vince is out of focus as he is running at the speed of light.

BUT as a reward, Vince fell asleep right before the dinner, and slept through the whole meal. Mom and dad enjoyed 2.5 hours of uninterrupted eating, talking and hanging out with the others while Vince snoozed in his ride.

Of course, there was no end to his energy after that power nap. Here he is trying someone’s shoes on.
