One of the best parts of talking William to the nursery in church is that there is usually at least one other child to play with him. Today in service a mom and dad were there with their three kids, two of whom went to children’s ministry classes and one of whom was a baby in a stroller. At one point the baby was crying and would not stop and I remember thinking how cool it would be if they found their way over the nursery. To my delight, when I went to pick up William, it turns out they had indeed found the nursery.
Ilea, whose parents are visiting, is eight months old and was born only a few weeks before William. They had a great time babbling and hanging out together, each one on a lap. They were both fans of William’s music box.
In a rush to take photos and pick him up, I didn’t realize at first that his Sophie was missing. He’s a huge fan of the toy and spends many happy hours using it as a teether. So, I had to go back and get it.
After teething with it for a moment, he threw the toy down, a favorite trick of his to get attention as it’s picked up. By coincidence, the blanket caught Sophie, which made for an adorable photo.
