We began our celebrations on Saturday with massages. I got a prenatal massage and Kyle got a deep tissue one. It was perfect. So perfect, that I think I'm going to have to schedule another one a few weeks before my due date. After we got done swooning over our massages, we went and got pedicures. Then, we picked up some fresh flowers on our way home.
On Sunday, our actual anniversary, we decided to have a casual day since we celebrated the night before. We started the morning off by going to church and dropping Kasen off in the church nursery. It was his first time, and it took a lot of persuading for me to finally feel comfortable with it. I know, I sound like "that" mom. The one that is attached to her child. But he is my first baby, and the thought of dropping him off with someone other than family was hard. When Kasen was a few months old we would take him to church, and he would sit with us, usually falling asleep. When he got to be 9 months old, it was harder. To the point that he was so mobile and loud that one of us would have to walk around outside the sanctuary with him. And maybe I should have put him in the nursery then, but I just couldn't handle it. So, we ended up taking a pretty long break from church, occasionally watching online. I know it probably sounds down right silly. That I was afraid to let my child go to the church nursery. But to me, my feelings were valid. And I had to reach the point of readiness. To let go just a little bit. To let him have some more independence. To stop worrying needlessly about things that hadn't happened. To take a deep breath, and know that he was going to be okay for an hour with loving workers that would take good care of him and children his age to play with.
All and all the weekend was great. I love taking Kasen new places and having family adventures. He had a pretty big weekend, getting to do lots of new things. And Kyle and I had a lovely anniversary. Cheers to two years!!!
