Here is a close-up of William. He looks just like his Mum at the same age here.

Williams Christening

My 6 month old grandson William Riley Close was christened on the 20th December at St. Brigids church in Mordialloc. Father Michael made the stole and the candle.
William wore his Mum's (my daughter Fiona's) christening gown, originally made by my Mother. I had to "boy" it a bit by making a false panel to cover the lace front and replaced the yellowed ribbon with a pale blue ribbon. It was a lovely day.
All this in the same church my daughter was christened in, had her 1st communion, confirmation then married in.
