Luke's first day in nursery

Tuesday Luke turns 18 months, so today was Luke's long awaited first day in the nursery at church.  We've learned that when we leave him with babysitters that rather than try to sneak out when he's distracted, the best thing to do is actually wave goodbye to him until he finally waves back.  That's his way of coming to accept our departure, and he always agrees, although sometimes it takes a minute or two.

But today in primary we did not have to do even that.  I dropped him off and he took a few steps, just wondered at the many other children and stared.  He never turned around at all to see his mom and dad leave.  And two hours later a very happy toddler was returned to us.  Luke is truly a darling.  We anticipate many more easy drop-offs at nursery in the future.
