Until Deuce was about 9 months old, we would all sit in the sanctuary every Sunday during church. He would either sleep or sit on my lap just looking around. But once he hit 9 months he decided he wanted to yell & coo and jump around in church. So off to the nursery it was. At our church there are no nursery "workers." You have to stay with your child in the nursery. But I'm totally cool with that! There is children's church (the equivalent to Sunday School) that goes on during the worship service but I think you have to be 4 to go. The church nursery is really nice. It's equipped with several recliners, a changing station, a crib, and a flat screen TV for all of the parents to watch the service. That way we don't miss a thing...except for all of the time that we spend making sure our child doesn't steal another kids toy. There are several other babies that are Deuce's age that are in the nursery every Sunday so I enjoy sitting with the other parents and listening to the service while the kids play. Ed & TJ sit in the sanctuary and they come down to get us after the service is over.
This is one of Deuce's favorite things to do. He is very close to walking, he just doesn't realize it. He loves for daddy to swing him around and he giggles and cackles so hard & loud. It's like the best noise I've ever heard in my life! I could watch these two for hours!
After we got home and watched that terrible basketball game, we went out to play. It was so nice and warm. Deuce had a great time playing in the dirt. He was crawling everywhere, eating grass and digging his hands in the mud. I wasn't bothered by it the least. That's what baths are for right? And this kid loves his bath so why not let him get dirty?
