Thanks to Thomas sleeping great last night, we were up and able to get ready for church this morning. We had made it for the Mother’s Day service when mom and Heather were in town and watching him, but this would be the first trip with Thomas. The only difference in the normal Sunday routine was that I had pop-tarts for breakfast instead of the usual blueberry pancakes, but hey – being a parent is all about flexibility!
He did remarkably well for his first time. I had him in the Baby Bjorn and he napped almost a full hour before he woke up and wanted to eat. Luckily I saw the hunger coming and found the mother’s room at our church before he got fussy. The Mother’s room is really nice! It has padded gliders, cribs, a changing table and a TV so you can stills watch the sermon. Now I’m even more confused about why there are always so many crying babies in our church on a regular basis… “/
He finished his mid-morning meal about the time the service ended, so we even got to go back so everyone could meet him while he was awake. Look how bright-eyed he was:
We even braved a lunch outing to Jason’s Deli with the life group and he did great there too. No doubt because he had his pacifier to keep him occupied. I don’t know what I would do without that thing sometimes. :)
