Hail the Conquering Hero!

Nehemiah was particularly chatty this morning during church. It was the high voltage babble of a delighted baby, which is great, when your pastor isn't in the middle of praying. ;) I thought that since he was in such an amiable mood I would try him out in the nursery. It is only the second time in 9 months that he has been out of his parents' care for more than 20 minutes!

When I arrived on the scene, I found one lady in the nursery, with 6 other kids, under the age of 4, without a helper. I was a little nervous, because no one would be able to run up and get me if Nehemiah lost it, and Cindy already had her hands full. But, bless her, she said to go ahead and leave him, and I promised to come back and check in. Twenty minutes later I peeked my head in, and there was NO screaming! I went back up for the rest of the service, and when I picked Nehemiah up, he was blissfully busy playing with "new" nursery toys and watching the other kiddos.

Success! What a blessing!
