Nursery and the Bumbo

Yesterday was Torilynn's first day in Nursery by herself. She is a few weeks shy of 18 months but she is a little monster in Sunday School and Relief Society so I usually end up sitting with her in Nursery anyways. When I took her in yesterday one of the leaders told me that I could just leave as she thought Tori would do just fine without having me in there with her. I was so excited! I have been waiting for this day for a long time! When I walked into Sunday school without her a lady in my ward asked if Tori got to go to Nursery now and I told her that she did and she said "We figured that was the case by the smile on your face when you walked in here." She then said "When your kids start nursery it is kind of like when your kids graduate from college, you feel free." Now I love Tori, she is usually a great little girl but it sure was nice not to have to control her during church yesterday, and apparently she was just as thrilled to not have to stay with me, the Nursery leaders said that she did great!
In other news we got Ella a Bumbo seat the other day. I resisted the urge to get one when Landon and Tori were babies, but Ella's head seems to be getting a little flat in the back so I figured the Bumbo might help. This baby seat is awesome, I highly recommend it to any of you moms with little babies (if you don't already have one).

I can't believe Tori is old enough to be in nursery!! Seriously, the last time I saw her, she was only a month or so old!! She is looking so big (and SO cute with her pigtails)!

I've heard those Bumbo seats are amazing. Do Tori and Landon try to sit in it? I could see Clayton and Noah doing that...

her dress is beautiful. that's nice that they let you leave her in there. So she gets to go now regularly? sweet. What is a bumbo anyway,.. I've heard about them but don't really get it.

Ariane- Landon and Tori do try to sit in the Bumbo. But they try to steal all of Ella's toys so....
Theresa- A bumbo is the little seat that Ella is sitting in in that last picture, it is a chair that helps babies who aren't old enough to sit up on their own sit up
Mom- Nope, not the matching dresses I told you about, but I did get this dress off of ebay!

Can I please hire you to dress my child? Your scrapbooking skill translates over into your fashion sense-so ADORABLE! We got a bumbo for our little guy. I didn't know how functional they were, but I did know how cute babies looked while sitting in them and thus it made the registry :) Congrats to Tori on graduating to nursery too!
