After church

After church today, I'm thankful that..

...Adalyn is doing better in the nursery each Sunday. She only cries (a terrible, loud, super sad) cry when we hand her over, and then she does pretty well! Today she even got down out of the lady's lap twice and played! Success!! I'm so proud of her and thankful for the nice nursery workers that work so patiently with her!

...We have a pastor who says what needs to be said to the men and women of our congregation. I've never, ever had a pastor like that, and he absolutely rocks. He isn't concerned about pleasing people, but rather speaking what pleases God. Love. It.

...I found out today that our church is #15 in the nation for young adult baptisms! and #20 for total adult baptisms! Again, love my church. LOVE IT.

...We ate at Chipotle for lunch. Found out that Adalyn loves guacamole (!?!) and slurps it off a tortilla chip like nobody's business. Definitely our child. Guacamole is one of our most favorite things!

...I fell in love with my husband all over again today. It's the best thing ever to be married to your best friend, I tell you what.

...Adalyn fell asleep so easily and is now taking a (super long, thank you, Jesus) nap with Daddy. Melt my little heart - are they cute or what!?

...She has a new-found sense of security in her Daddy, and I'm so, so thankful for it!

...During this super long nap, I've gotten ALL my house work done! Does anything feel better than having a perfectly clean house, a sleeping baby, and propping your feet up to blog a little? I think not.

...We're heading to our friend's house for a super bowl party tonight! We don't watch sports (like, at all) and I didn't even know who was playing until a few days ago :) We're going to socialize and let Adalyn play with the other kids. I made cupcakes, hamburgers, and chips & cokes. It should be a blast!

:) Happy Sunday! And just for fun, I think I'll root for the Giants. Because all my friends are telling me to! :)


  1. Precious!! Nothing more to be said...those photos speak for themselves!

  2. Enjoy yalls time at your friends house! I'm making cheese dip and putting Matthew out on the grill to grill hotdogs! Lol! I wish I could have a coke.. but it doesn't sound good though. I want a Welches grape soda lol!
    I love watching Elijah sleep with Matthew, its not a lot, but when it does happen I feel the same you do, it melts my heart!
    We have the same kind of Pastor! He's not afraid what others think, only what God what's him to say! I love it! :-)

    I'm glad you're getting back to blogging. I love to read them!
