National Night Out Set Up

Today William and I arrived at Almaden Hills United Methodist Church early to help with the set up for the backpack stuffing for National Night Out. We ended up being so early that we were there before the set up, so we went to visit with Children’s Ministry Director Peggy Joy. Peggy even had a had for him as he was too young to attend Vacation Bible School a few weeks ago and get his own hat. Peggy admired the quilt I brought with him, which had been made by the Quilting Group of my church.

A Visit to J. Lohr

Matt and I had not been to J. Lohr Winery in a long time. The last time I had been was when my mother had come to town two years ago for Mother’s Day and she, Candy and I all went together. As I was pregnant with William at the time I could not drink, yet we still had a good time. Matt’s last visit had even been longer than that. So we looked forward to going now as I would be able to enjoy the tasting with Matt.

Two Infants in Church Nursery

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.

A Bit Better Already

When we took William to the doctor, yesterday, she had told us that not only was he through the worst of his cold, but she expected him to be through it quickly. We were all looking forward to him being back to healthy soon. Mirabel gave him extra love knowing he was still feeling a bit under the weather.

William’s Doctor Visit for Diagnosis

Even though William has been very healthy so far, for which we are, of course, grateful, we did expect him to get sick from time to time. Over the last few days he’d had a stuffy nose and was even hitting himself on the side of his head. We didn’t know if he was teething, sick or was having something else going on, however, we decided it was a good idea for him to see a doctor.

Babies and Adult Focussed Parties

A few weeks ago we’d been invited to a birthday party for a dear friend and his wife. The invitation had originally read adults only. However, as it got closer to the event, the hosts decided to open it up to children as well, so we decided to go and take William. We had thought he would be the only child younger than a toddler, however, soon after we arrived I was told to have him go say hello to the other baby there.

Messy Mealtimes

It’s not surprising that we were given so many bibs at my baby shower. Mealtime is definitely one of the most messy parts of William’s day. As he’s learning about food tastes and textures and getting more involved in the process, his food tends to go all over the place. Here he is trying to feed himself directly with the spoon.
