My goodness. The last few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind- thus my lack of blogging.
On January 4th, we celebrated Jack’s Holy Baptism. For the most part, it really was an absolutely fabulous day. Our families (extended) were there and a handful of friends. I just couldn’t get over all the love for my little boy. He’s so incredibly lucky and blessed to be surrounded by so many people that love him.
Well, Jack is officially in daycare now and I am back to work. It is strange- my heart aches to be with my baby, but at the same time, it is nice to be back to using my brain for something other than perfecting my Elmo impersonation. Jack is really having a blast there though- he has more toys and attention than he knows what to do with and is exhausted at the end of the day. Unfortunately with daycare though comes daycare germs. Jack came home a week and a half ago with diarrhea. BAD diarrhea 🙁 I felt so bad for the little guy. Only yesterday did we FINALLY feel like we had our baby back and he was good ol’ happy, smiling sweet Jack. He had his 4 month checkup a week ago and his pedi says he is a happy, healthy baby (minus the little stomach bug). He’s tiny- in only the 1oth percentile for his weight @ 12lbs 13oz. He’s grown though- he’s now 23 inches long and growing out of a lot of his 3 month clothes pretty quickly. His head is in the 50th percentile. Thanks daddy! LOL! DH and I both caught Jack’s tummy bug and had to take a day off from work to rest. It was HORRIBLE so I can’t even imagine how our little baby felt! I really do miss Jack all day though and when I get home, I admittedly spoil him rotten with all the cuddling. Just when I thought my heart couldn’t hold anymore love for him…
On this extended MLK weekend, we are finally ALONE. It is literally our first weekend without guests or plans since THANKSGIVING and we are absolutely soaking it up. We’ve been sick, just had a crazy holiday schedule and wanted some family alone time. Is that too much to ask? I’m just tired of it. Tired of catering to everyone else. It is time DH and I put our family first.
