One small step for Little Elvis, one giant leap for Mommy

Actually, Little Elvis had a few small steps this weekend.

The biggie? Mommy took him to the nursery during big church. My church spoils me with a crying room, and I've been delaying the inevitable for weeks. Little Elvis had a great time! He poopied (yay! Mommy didn't have to change it!) and he apparently ran for the door everytime it was opened. The pastor was so proud of me, although she did tell me that I looked like a deer in headlights for the entire service. I honestly can't tell you what it was about.

Yes, my son is 15 months old and this was his first time in a nursery. I am nuts.

He also rode in the car in front of the shopping cart for the first time. Little Elvis even gave Mommy his model smile -- he hasn't broken that one out for the camera in a while.
Usually, I get this face when I pull out the camera. It's definitely his new squinchy face, but I think he's also prepping for the flash from the camera.
He's just plain cute in this one. I like his little expression, and love all the little bites he's taken out of the apple. He's started a fun, new trick with his apples. He apparently doesn't like the skin. So he eats the skin off, chews it for a bit and then puts it in my mouth. And the little stinker stands there until I chew and swallow! The things you do for love.
This one is also just super, super cute.
He was so taken with the apple that he took it outside. The rock that he's showing off eventually replaced the apple. But only after he dropped it and I refused to give it back to him until I rinsed it off.

Please don't forget to enter the contest!

geez, he's only a week older than Zachary but he seems like so much older! I wouldn't dare give Zach an apple because he'd bite off a huge chunk - and with no back teeth yet, he'd just choke. And I've been there, done that with a CAN'T BREATHE, LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS baby... can't do that again... nuhhuh no way.

I love Little Elvis' difference faces. He's too cute!

Why are you nuts because it's the first time he's been in a nursery?

Those are some great shots! My daughter makes the same squinty-faced one when I pull out the camera.

PS: Isabella is 20 months old and I have yet to put her in my church's nursery!

Thanks for stopping by. He's a cutie! You aren't nuts..In our Sunday School class there are two couples that still bring their toddlers in because they don't wanna take them to the nursery yet. You know...I don't know how I forgot about Alton, he's pretty good looking too! : )

Yay for Elvis. He is ADORABLE!!!

I can't lie. The very thought of the nursery petrifies me. PETRIFIES me.

The look on your face--I so know that look!

Good for you! Leaving M in the care of qualified others has never been hard for me. I am always so ready for being around adults! Enjoy that time! You deserve it and I bet Elvis will have a lot more fun in the nursery than the boring old cry room,;)
