Nathan's First Time at Church

Since Nathan was doing so well and since the minimum of the 3-6 month moratorium of not taking Nathan to public places had passed, we decided to go ahead and take him to church for the first time.  However, we decided to only keep him there for part of the services and to keep him away from as many people as possible -- just in case.

Just for fun, I got Nathan and I matching pants and ties for church:


  1. How cute is that. You two look so good together with your matching ties. Your smile in that last picture shows so much joy in your son, what a great picture.

    On the side: where did you get the little baby tie? I have been looking for baby ties and the only one I found was at a yard sale and he is almost grown out of it. I would love to get him a new tie.

  2. Shelly, you can make them :) But you can also find them online ;)

    You guys are SO STINK'N CUTE matching and all. I don't know if I've seen anything cuter. Daddy and son matching :)

  3. Shelly, I picked them up at the tie store in University Mall. I don't think they were very expesive because I bought 4 of them.
