At our church, Christ the King, we have had a baby boom it seems. The anatomy of CKC right now seems to be mature families with grown or teenage children (and still some young ones down there somewhere) and then us beginners with one or two babies. Quite at polar ends of the spectrum, but that is what makes it work soooo well.
I just want to say thank you to all those that have held our babies so we could finish our lunch, thrown them in the air over and over, let them chew on your shoulder, droll on your arm, for reading stories to them, for taking them on the play ground, and for just loving them! It is really sweet when Ellie starts singing "no more monkeys jumping on the bed" and informs me that "Mr. Luke"taught it to her. Thank you all for helping and encouraging us.
And to all the single, young adults (which are really my age or older :) We can't wait to bless you by holding your babies one day!
