Back To Church

We all went to church yesterday for the first time since bringing the baby home. Whoa!!We attend a church which practices family worship. There is no children's church or nursery. We love that, but when you are out of practice, watch out! First, getting up and out the door by 8:00 with 7 people proved to be a little tricky. We thought we were doing good. We were not late, everyone was dressed, things were lookin' good(Even though I had to put my make-up on in the car.). We get to church and realized we forgot Jackson's blanket. That is the only thing that really keeps him quiet. He knows the routine. Get the blanket, sit on mom or dad's lap, suck my fingers, and have the occasional Goldfish or sip of water. He immediately starts looking for the blanket. He dumps out the diaper bag and starts crying. I am thinking, no problem, we have food and a cup. No cup. He whined or cried the entire service. On to the baby. He is a really good baby. Give him a pacifier and he will cuddle for hours. No pacifier and he is not so quiet. Guess what? We forgot it. It was rough, but we made it through. Any bets on if we pack the diaper bag the night before next week?
