‘Godparents’

We’ve now asked four people to be godparents to Leo – and we are very happy they have all said yes. Richard, Alison, Anna and Jag are all fabulous people, and all know us well while being quite different in many ways. I had always wondered what i’d looked like when Judith asked me to be Felix’s godparent – seeing Jag’s face, i now know.
I wish there was a better name for it; but they all understand our request has nothing to do with Christianity; rather, supporting our boy, and us, as he grows into the world.
We have the magnum of champagne that Madame Lefevre gave us when we got the wedding champagne, which she said was pour le premier bebi. We’re going to plan for everyone to get together in one place to open it, wet Leo’s head and toast the extended family.
It’s going to be lovely.
