The End of an Era

Things here have been hectic with my return to work. But, things are good.

Highlight: Both kids are going to bed between 7:30 and 8:00
Lowlight: Both kids need bedtime rituals at the same time (we had one-at-a-time before).

Highlight: Bobo is taking bottles and napping at day care.
Lowlight: Chuckles is not napping and is a raging terror by 6:30. A cute terror, but a terror.

Highlight: Bobo is learning all about other babies and sharing.
Lowlight: One of the other babies shared her cough with Bobo (he seems fine except for a hack...must tell him to quit smoking....Mr. Long-Suffering calls it the "kennel cough").

Highlight: Bobo rolled over tummy-to-back twice yesterday.
Lowlight: We only got 6,512 photos of it. Would have preferred 7,000 photos.

Highlight: Chuckles had an unprompted, spontaneous outburst of love for us. "I love you, Mommy and Daddy...and Bobo and Lisa too."
Lowlight: Bobo had an unprompted, spontaneous outburst of poop for us that caused emergency laundry.

So, all-in-all, a good time. Hectic but good. Dinner has turned into something of a circus, but we'll probably hit our stride in a week or two. Hope you're all doing well.

  1. Oh good. I've been wondering how the transition back to work has gone. I go back a week from today. Baby will be nearly 11 weeks old. Sad, but that's all the time I had to take. Glad Bobo is taking the bottle and you are surviving.
