First, Jacob stayed in the nursery at church for the FIRST time this past Sunday. How did he do? Great. How did we do? Better than expected. J's teachers are Joe and Karen. They are an older couple and are in there every week to provide consistency...we like this very much. There were about six babies for J to play with. They said he was very good and liked to lie on the floor and chew on toys. That boy sure loves to chew these days!! :) West End has such an amazing children's area. It is so bright and colorful. We feel so safe leaving our sweet boy there while we go and worship. What a blessing!!!
Second, we joined the Y. We have been wanting to for quite a while and just hadn't gotten around to it. However, with me trying to shed those last baby pounds before having to wear a swimsuit and wanting a pool to take J to this summer we decided to do it. It has been wonderful. The people in the nursery are sweet and J seems to have a good time. Jared and I have been enjoying our workouts. I even went to a step class this morning...what a workout. So fun!! We are hoping to take J for his first swim at the indoor pool sometime this week.
Speaking of bathing suit weather...here is our little man in his first suit. We know it's not quite swimming time but boy are we ready!!!
In other BIG news. J started rice cereal this week. What an experience!!! He did so well and I think he is quite enjoying it. At first he was confused and not sure what to do, but it only took a few bites before he started to get the hang of it. We were waiting to start him until we absolutely had to because we have some food allergies in our family, but J was ready. He was eating tons during the day and still waking up at night the past few days to eat more. So, we decided to jump on in. Here are some pics of J's first taste of solid food. What a BIG boy!!!!
