April 14-20, 3 weeks oldIssac's 3rd week marked Holy Week and Easter for us... another busy time in the Nelli household. We didn't manage to attend Holy Thursday services but did make it to Good Friday where everyone could kiss the cross and give thanks. It is a long mass but so visual for the kids in the way the priests and altar servers slowly process in to the beating "drum", the way they lay prostrate at the beginning of mass symbolizing Jesus's death, the sheer numbers of people who attend, and the enormous cross that everyone is able to touch or kiss. You've got to give yourself a pat on the back if you attended with your whole family and a newborn!

Another diaper video... it is just so fascinating for me to see him fattening up!
