Out and About--Sunday, May 1
The mass was quite interesting, though very long. Having grown up Catholic, everything was familiar but I no longer had the responses, prayers, and Nicene Creed memorized. (Of course, most of our family didn't know them either.) Jackson got hungry during the service, so Jesse gave him a bottle that I had pumped. He ate 2 oz and was still fussy. I took him to the "cry room" and the boy acted like he was starving. He ate 10 minutes from both sides and never even spit up! He was still acting hungry so I went back to the service and made Jesse change his diaper (he had the diaper bag) and give him a pacifer.
After a nearly 2 hour long service, we went out to lunch with the family to celebrate my niece's communion. She chose to go to Logan's. Jesse and I were both a bit nervous about our first real public outing (besides church and doctor's office), but Jackson was great. He slept through half of lunch, then my oldest sister gave him the rest of the bottle. I still ended up having to nurse in the car before we left.
