For an exciting Sunday...

The best way to attend church: lots of little escorts! This morning 9 CDA babies and little people were at Cochabamba International Church. It also just happened to be our 2nd annual missions weekend so we had a booth (thanks to the Alseth family of Casa de Amor III, who set it up and ran it for us!).

CDA's Baby Row (and hardly a peep the whole service, I might add):
Twins G & G, Baby V

Baby wearing!! Also lots of fun. Here I am with girl twin G and the fellow missionary/children's home director who sews baby slings:

I'd like to say our "glow" is our joy in our babies (although could be!), but I believe we're glistening with SWEAT. We guessed it was a good 85 degrees F inside church today AND it was a packed house with not even elbow room. No AC in Cochabamba! I'm thinking baby wearing will be cooler in the winter.

Note: Turns out that at the time of this picture, we were in "International Babywearing Week", haha. We're still in it actually, so better go find a baby to wear...

You know, I was thinking of my Dad as I wrote that ("Girls don't sweat, they perspire").

Edgar is doing amazingly well!! I am so impressed that the 3 year old is taking surgery so much better than the 3 month old did. The challenge is more for the tias to keep him down and occupied. Yesterday he was crying from frustration, not pain...which although difficult, I suppose is the better. =)
