Dominic Alan was born on September 28th, 1993, our fifth son in a row. His was such a loooong, difficult labor (not typical for me) that we were especially glad to welcome him into the world. He was a soft, pudgy little guy (8lbs, 5oz or so), with brilliant blue eyes, fine blonde hair and the fattest, cutest little marshmallow feet you ever saw. He was a beautiful little boy. He looked like a doll. In fact, by the time he was two years old he looked almost exactly like this doll:
|White, in liturgical use, symbolizes purity, and is used in the Masses of Our Lady and Our Lord (except of the Passion), and the angels, among others. It's the color of the hooded tunic and long scapular that he was presented as a Novice.|
|After the ceremony, awesome Fr. Gregory gave Br. Pius some practical tips on the best way to attach the rosary that he wears to use and honor Our Blessed Mother, most especially because his is a Marian Seminary.|
|And last but not least. This picture. Because I love it. |
See that smile? His Momma misses it.
