There isn't really much new going on here, it doesn't seem, but we've been busy. I think it's been a week of firsts.
Monday morning I took Luke to my Body and Soul aerobics class (we went when class was over...I'm not attending yet!) to show him off. He was a hit of course. The ladies were so sweet, there were several gifts there waiting for us and they'd prepared and frozen soups and goodies for us to stock our freezer. We've been getting meals from people at church 3-4 times per week, with the last one scheduled for November 14, and then mom is coming down on the 16th, plus my frozen goodies....I may not have to cook until NEXT YEAR! It's terrific!!!
Tuesday, we went to the mall, our first trip. I got Luke a new outfit from Baby Gap for New Baby Dedication at church this coming Sunday. I had a gift card, and while paying, was reminded why I don't shop at Baby Gap! Too many Rachel dollars for me!! BUT! Luke will be one cute little baby boy Sunday morning.
We went to church for the first time Wednesday night and ran into Larry Schwab, one of our elders, who happened to have a camera on him (I didn't ask him why, but am wondering about that now!!) and he took a picture of our Luke First Church visit. He slept the whole time. We went a little early and interrupted the Precept class and I showed him off there. He was a big hit. Then we went to our class together and then it was home again, home again! Below is the picture Larry took.
Yesterday I went to the grocery store with Luke in the morning. He ate and as soon as he was done, I put on sweats and we headed out (without showering) and I was nervous the whole trip that he would wake up and get hungry before we made it back home. I felt rushed the whole time. Never again will I forget to wear my watch! I can't handle the stress. hahah.
And tonight (Friday) Kyle and I are going to go out to eat. We're going right after Luke eats again. He is one hungry child. I don't think there will be any firsts tomorrow, but who knows!!
Sunday will be our first trip to church. We've been staying away because pneumonia has been going around the city and church and I don't want Luke to get sick. We will go this Sunday, because as I mentioned, it's New Baby Dedication. There are going to be 16 new babies this Sunday!! A huge group. Kyle and I will be taking the camera and camcorder to record the festivities. One of the couples with a new baby are professional photographers, and they're going to take pictures after worship and give each family 1 8X10, and we can order more if we like. Kyle and I are going to do that as well.
Our baby announcements came in the mail today. I stuffed all my pre-addressed envelopes this morning and they will go out in tomorrow's mail, so one could be showing up to a mail box near you soon. Not to brag....but they turned out WONDERFUL!! I chose one of the pictures that Johnny took. I'm so happy with them.
I'll post sometime next week with pictures from this Sunday hopefully. We'll see. 'Til then!!
