Our baby boy Leo got baptised this past weekend! We waited until my sister and her husband and new baby were in town so we had some more family there and could all celebrate together. Plus my sister and her husband are Ivy’s godparents, so it was nice having them there for this baptism too :) John and I chose my longtime friend since middle school, Shannon, and John’s brother Jeff as Leo’s godparents. Shannon is also Ivy and Leo’s pediatrician, so she’ll be a lifer in this family! And she’s sooooo good with kids, it was the perfect fit!
John’s Mom Betsy had found this christening gown at a flea market for Ivy when she got baptised, so only fitting for Leo to wear it too :) Haha, he looked funny in a gown, but it was pretty cute! We topped it off with a hand knit sweater that Betsy also gave us. It was over 40 years old and all of the 4 Koch kids wore it at once. So pretty neat to have Leo in something his Dad AND godfather wore when they were a baby!
Also, it was so nice for my sister Jillian, her husband Brian, and their new baby Alexandra to be there. Nice to have the most of the family there to celebrate Leo receiving his first sacrament!
And the Koch side wouldn’t miss it! Love their grandkids!
