Hi everyone:)

I mentioned on another thread that my 5 month old grandson had a formal 'Naming Ceremony' last Saturday. Well I spoke to his mother (my DD) and she has given me permission to post his picture for you to enjoy! Doesnt he look absolutely dapper in his suit :hehe: Thats a real tie by the way!



Love
Joan

He looks absolutely adorable, Joan.

His little suit and tie are fab.

When they are litle like that I always want to bite their bum!

I promise I have never, ever actually done it. :rotfl:

Joan he is just adorable. He has the cutest cheeks I have ever seen.

I hope he brings you many years of happiness.

If you don't mind, please share what a formal name ceramony consists of.

Excuse my ignorance here but I have never heard of it.

He is just a love bug.

Hi Karol

Its a secular ceremony developed by Humanists to mark the rite of passage of a child into the world. It can be carried out by friends or an accredited official from the local Humanist Association. Basically its a celebration of birth and new life and it gives the parents an opportunity to say what they want to say in their own words. Quite a lovely ceremony actually - very warm and touching. I had never been to anything like it before and I was very pleased with it.

It can be held anywhere you like - from your own home to the top of a mountain!

Hope that explains it!

Luv n stuff
Joan:rose:

Joan he is so handsome and a wonderful clothes horse! Unusual to see such a young baby look so good in a suit, usually they are a bit too rounded for it to fit that well.

He is indeed absolutely gorgeous!!

My step-daughter had that kind of naming ceremony too and it was apparently lovely (I wasn't there of course). Unfortunately her brother never got that privilege, somehow wish we could correct that but he's going on for five!!

He's adorable Joan :) just delightful.

The naming ceremonies are such a good alternative. Nobody had the idea decades ago when mine were born although we did ask friends to have a special relationship with our kids, as godparents might.

Yes Joan, the explanation you gave was helpful. Sounds like a lovely way to celebrate the birth of a child and similar to our baptisim ceramonies here.

I think your grand baby is just adorable.
