Crazy! The bride even had little bags with things to do for the children at the reception. I was worried that our kids would be some of the only kids there, but there were tons. In fact, this was the most packed wedding I have ever been to.
Mistake #1 for me at this wedding is defying the laws of nursing and wearing a dress that zips up in the back. I've done it once before and I managed okay, but this time Judah was not nearly so patient.
Mistake #2 was thinking Judah would take a nap at the reception when he was already off schedule. He was great during the actual wedding, but he screamed a lot during the reception. Luckily, there was a big, clean bathroom with chairs. I spent a good amount of time in there during the quieter moments of the reception. Drew pretended to be different super heroes, entertaining people as they washed their hands, while I nursed, changed, or calmed Judah. Once the party got started and the noise level was high, I was able to push him in the stroller for a couple of minutes while he cried himself to sleep. He was overly tired for sure.

|This guy was so tired by the end he was just rolling around on the dance floor. He wouldn't let me hold him. I was afraid he was going to be stepped on by some high heels or something, so it was time to go.|
