Hello, friends. BabyJoe turned 2 months on September 30th. I cannot believe where the time has gone. It feels like this man has been in my life forever, but I am also scratching my head, wondering how two months have flown by in such a short amount of time. Babies do weird things to time.
They do even stranger things to your heart. I wish I could put into words the love I have for this boy. He stops my heart and makes it sing all at once. This month has brought smiles, and I just about die at every one. I would do anything for that smile, which often leaves me looking like an asshole to the naked eye as I dance and sing and make faces at my baby in public places. True story.
Just as I started to feel like I had the reigns on this motherhood thing, I had to go back to work. Part of me was excited to see my friends and talk to adults, but the larger part of me was so sad to say good bye that morning. I do feel a little less over worked at work (you SAHM bust your rears more than I ever will at work!) and I am super confident in the care he is getting while I'm gone, so overall, for now, I'm happy with our situation. I would love to stay at home, but its definitely not in the cards for us at this stage in the game. Luckily, we don't need to put Orion in daycare. I work from home on Mondays so I hang out with my son all day. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Mr. Joe's grandmother comes to watch him. On Thursdays, my bff comes up and on Fridays, Mr. Joe's sister takes a turn. He loves all the ladies in his life :-)
There is so much I want to write about. Did I say that last month? I wish that I had tons of time to blog about breastfeeding, the struggle I had to let go of it, the crazy first days home where I thought I was losing my mind, Mr. Joe's ideas about number two, and a whole ton of pictures of BabyJoe in silly hats. I will try my best. I know you're all at the edge of your seats. Stay tuned!
