His eyebrows are so expressive!

Matching vests with Poppy
Will & I went out for our first date without Crew. It was hard leaving him! He stayed at my parents while we went to Texas Roadhouse and to see the movie Gravity (which we loved). We talked about Crew the entire time though and were anxious to get back to him!
Crew's first road trip was to Hardy, AR. This is where we always go camping every Fall and Spring. While we couldn't camp, it's a close enough drive to go for the day. Crew did so great in the car and slept the entire way there and back. We went antique shopping and Will did some fishing. It was my first time to wear my Moby wrap with Crew and we both loved it. It did feel like I was pregnant again carrying such a big baby (hello, back pain!), but it was much more convenient than pushing a stroller through cramped antique shops. It also kept us both pretty warm! Can't wait to wear him again!
Crew still loves being swaddled and held close. He likes sleeping on his daddy's chest, riding in the car, being outside and bath time. He doesn't like having his clothes changed or being strapped into his car seat!
Yesterday we celebrated several things. It was Crew's one month birthday. The past month has flown by. Our lives were changed for the better on October 3rd and we still look at Crew in complete awe that he is our son. I may be a little biased, but he is just the most handsome, sweet baby there is! It was also Crew's first day at church. I held him the entire time and he just snoozed in my arms. He did so good! There were several times I teared up during worship thinking about how just a few months ago I stood there pregnant and imagining holding our son in my arms. God has been so good in blessing our family with this precious baby.
Our church celebrated its 10 year anniversary yesterday as well as the grand opening of our new building and permanent church home. After meeting in homes, a school and a hotel the past 10 years, our church now has a home base for ministry within the city. This building has been prayed for and prayed over for years and it was amazing to see those prayers answered. The recurring theme for the morning at church was "God is faithful" and He is. Over and over again.
Crew is one month old. God is faithful.
We are free to raise our son loving God. God is faithful.
ICC celebrated 10 years serving downtown Memphis. God is faithful.
We were blessed with an amazing building to call our permanent church home. God is faithful.
My matching boys. I love them so much it hurts.
We are so looking forward to many more months to come with our sweet boy!
