Infants and Infant Care at Church

Today during the part I’m church when new visitors may introduce themselves if they choose, Pastor Mariellen announced it was Kira’s first time visiting. Everyone turned to see Sean and Ashley’s seven week old daughter.

It was great to see them as work and parental obligations have made it so it has been months since we saw the new parents.

The serious expressions captured above are unusual for them, often they are laughing and smiling like the first picture and this one as well.

Mariellen made sure as she always does to ask how our baby and I are doing. I had a parishioner take a quick photo of us, unfortunately she took only one and my eyes were closed, still I love our smiles in it.

This was the first time I’d worn a dress to church. It was very comfortable for my bump. I got told I looked radiant and that my bumped had dropped down and also was asked was I sure I only had one kid inside, which I am.

Before church I checked our the daycare center they have for infants and up during services.

There are toys for each level of development.

Infants who are welcomed after they have had first vaccinations at week six, are usually held or set in a crib.

There are two caretakers at a time who are registered care givers. I look forward to bringing our child there someday soon.
