Welcome to Emily Therese!

Welcome to Emily Therese!


Blogger Petrus became a Dad for the 4th time at 13.57 on 5th February, when beautiful little Emily Therese weighed in at 9 lbs 6.

Petrus remembered that we’d had a thread to mark the birth of his baby son, Patrick, and his other two sons were also welcomed into the world on this blog so we decided to launch this thread in order to allow us all to offer our warmest congratulations to Petrus, his wife and sons, as well as giving a huge and loving welcome to baby Emily Therese. God bless Emily Therese!

    I forgot two things:

    firstly, to ask Petrus whether or not the baby will get both names all the time or just “Emily”

    secondly, to say that baby jokes (nice ones only of course) would be welcome on this thread. But only once you’ve said…

    Congratulations, Petrus, and welcome baby Emily Therese! 😀 😀 😀

      Thank you for this lovely thread. She will simply be known as Emily (except when she’s in trouble!)

      Thanks be to God, Our Lady and St Gerard that all went well!

      Thank you. My wife has been wearing the blessed St Gerard medal that you sent us some years ago. It has been a source of grace and comfort.

    All the best, Petrus. Congrats to you and your wife and prayers for Emily Therese. With a name that cuts down to ET, shouldn’t these congratulations be on the extra-terrestrial thread? 😀

    Great news indeed! Congratulations to you, Petrus and your wife on producing a bouncing baby girl. A daughter! You know what they say: “a son’s a son till he marries a wife, a daughter’s a daughter the whole of her life!”

    Prayers and very best wishes for a happy life for baby Emily.

    Great news. Welcome to the world Emily and love to all your family.

    (Poor wee soul, with three big brothers watching out for her she is never going to be allowed to get up to any mschief!!)

    Just think. Emily is going to be congratulating herself on having three brothers, whilst each of those brothers is going to be asking himself why he has only two brothers!

    I forgot to say the other day when offering congratulations to both you and your dear wife, if it is likely that Emily Therese will rule the roost where her older brothers are concerned. You never know.

    Many congratulations to both you and your wife on the arrival of your baby daughter.

    Little Emily Therese is certainly amongst those lucky children with the best possible start in life, being born into a family holding the Faith, the pearl of great price.

    Emily Therese was baptised today. She is a gorgeous baby and didn’t utter a sound during the beautiful traditional Baptism, which was clearly explained throughout by the SSPX priest who administered the Sacrament. Afterwards, Emily was consecrated to Our Lady – which is customary at the end of baptisms in Society chapels.

    Welcome to the fold, Emily Therese !
