Leonid’s Christening

Last sunday we celebrated Leo’s Christening. He was perfect all day long only letting out a little wimpier when the minister gave him his little bath.

At home before the christening
 
Macedonian Orthodox ceremony involves giving the baby a dunk in holy water, a little hair snip, blessing the cross given to Leo by his god parents and a visit to the private alter with the minister.
 
Then there was cake and dancing.

  1. I’ve been waiting for these photos all week!! It looks like it was such a special occasion, both boys looked gorgeous and I especially love the photo of the two of them on the bed. So precious. You look absolutely fantastic in that white dress too :)

  2. I’m Russian Orthodox so we have very similar traditions and ceremonies except that mostly our Christenings take place when our babies are still very little! Congratulations to your family and little Leonid!

    Beautiful photos.

    • Oh yes Sophie, I have heard it is done at 6 weeks probably better that way Leo didn’t cry but all the other babies that were there screamed the place down.

  3. Hi Julia, what beautiful photos of the boys on the bed. Their little outfits look very snazzy too :) Congratulations to little Leo and a very big welcome to the Christian world!
