happy father's day

Today was R's 1st father's day! He is a wonderful father. Before Eli, he hadn't spent much time at all around babies and didn't know anything about them. He had never changed a diaper. Now, he takes such great care of Eli. He is very loving and gentle and patient, and I am so proud of him.

Another first. We took Eli to church for the 1st time. It felt so good to be back. I had really missed going. His Aunt Gracie stayed in the nursery with him. I was glad she could sit in there with him. He did so well, even when another toddler hit him over a toy. I felt so very protective when I found that out. Don't hit my sweet baby! He's been through enough already!

Tomorrow we should find out the results of his chest x-ray and when he's supposed to start his TB medication. We'll spend the rest of the week getting ready for our first family vacation! We're going to the beach next week with my family, including my aunt, uncle, cousins, mom, sisters, brother-in-law, and nephew. I'm very excited!

I'm glad his first church experience went well (minus the toy incident!) I hope that his chest x-ray results come back okay tomorrow! Please keep us posted!

Have a great first family vacation together!
Hope all goes well with the xray results and praying that Eli does OK with the TB meds.
As for the toy incident...amazing how quickly we become "mama bears" and want to protect our little ones!

Glad that church went well. I'm a bit worried about going with the baby. Never done it before. Unfortunately we're waiting till she is sleeping better since that means daddy will be sleeping better so we haven't been yet with her. Anyhow, glad he did well in the nursery.
