Our Baptized Baby and a Beautiful Baptismal Blanket

After our little man's baptism this past Friday, I snapped a few pictures of him on his beautiful baptismal blanket, a gift from his Godparents.  I realized prior to the baptism, that I didn't really have any close up pictures of the baptismal outfit, which was also worn by two of his older brothers.   I don't generally like the little "suit" outfits for boys, but I think this one is darling!

And isn't the blanket perfect?! I think I have a new favorite baptism gift for Godchildren!  Even though the blankets had been on back order, it arrived just in time for the baptism, thanks to Catholic Embroidery who embroidered it as soon as the blankets were back in stop and shipped it express mail.  (Thank you Mary!)  The blanket is embroidered with the Ave Maria Symbol in dark blue and the baby's name and baptismal date in green. (I really had no idea that I had chosen the colors of his Godfather's favorite football team! lol!)  It turned out so pretty!

Can you believe that Bud is a month old already?!  This past month has gone by so fast!


  1. That´s beautiful, Jessica! Stupid me thought that AM stands for his first name and your maiden name, which kind of kept me wondering, lol! I love his suit, it´s really cute and not too adult looking like some other baptism suits for boys. Where have you bought it?

  2. Oh, that is funny. Nope, the AM is for Our Lady! Back when I was pregnant with Rascal I was working (still owned my phone directory at that time) and traded an ad for some baby items at a little specialty baby shop called "Oh, Baby!" - including this baptismal outfit, a diaper bag, and a toddler bed for Captain. :)

  3. I agree, too wonderful for words! +JMJ+

  4. So beautiful! God bless your baby! I love love love the pics!

  5. Jessica, your baby is stunningly handsome! Congratulations and God Bless!
