We get back from the diaper change, and he's squirming and fussing, and Paul has to leave to get ready for church (he plays guitar for the main service). As soon as he leaves, Charlie starts fussing unconsolably, so I leave class early and go ahead to "big" church too. Once in the sanctuary, I get him out of the carseat and put him in the sling. This is great, he's up looking around, and as soon as we stand up to sing the first song, he's out, asleep. I tuck him in the sling a little more and he is fast asleep...
Well crazy paranoid mommy me, thinks he's a little too deep in the sling and may not be able to breathe fresh air, so I take him out. Here's my second mistake... fuss fuss fuss... right in the middle of the sermon. Oh and did I mention, we took off his cute jeans and socks so he wouldn't get too hot in the sling? So now he's wearing his polo shirt with no pants and no socks (something I thought I would never let my baby do). So, I have to leave the service and go sit in the foyer... again sweating and now covered in spit up.
At this point, I'm thinking, why, why did we even come today? We would have been better off to just stay home... and then I was reminded...
It may have been the fact that my baby was snuggled so close and I remembered all those Sundays feeling him kick in my belly, wondering if this blessing was really real...
It may have been the fact that our dear dear friends that are about to move because the Lord has called them into ministry were sitting right next to me and I am so proud and so sad at the same time...
And then I was also reminded of feeling so self conscious walking out of the service and then being greeted with smiles from other church members and mommies (and daddies) with their babies in the foyer...
We are so blessed, beyond belief, to have this church family. I am so thankful that the Lord continues to meet me at the moment of my weakness and allow me to truly feel His presence even though I left church feeling not so grateful with a pantsless, sockless, crying baby, and spit up down my shirt and I'm still so sleep deprived that I feel like I can't get myself together sometimes... His grace is enough. We live a beautiful life and I am so thankful. Thank you Lord.

As for now, its my first break of the day! Somehow, they both wore themselves out and Charlie is taking a pretty long nap!
Maggie conked out by the couch
Sweet Charlie, not even aware of the chaos that awaits him when he wakes up!
(in the process of uploading these pictures, Maggie woke up and peed on the floor! Gotta go!)

Oh well, baby, learn those spatial skills early!!! I can't keep that little Mario Kart on the road to save my life! Maybe I should have played video games a little more...
