Back at work and other stuff

I am back at work this week. I got a small reprieve - we had snow days Monday and Tuesday so this is really only my second day back. I miss little man like crazy - but it does feel pretty good to start being productive again. Even though I was only gone for 8 weeks - it feels like forever. There is so much to catch up on. And maybe I can keep up with my blogging...

T is being Mr. Mom for now. We will see how that goes. I hope it works because we really can't afford day care right now. But I do have to admit that I'm a little jealous, even though it is tough to be at home with a baby all day.

We are still trying to figure out a routine. Every time I think we've got something good worked out little man decides he needs to change it up. He has gotten so cute and interactive now too. He responds to each of us in different ways. He just lights up when YaYa is around. His favorite amusement right now is the ceiling fan in the bedroom. He will lay on the bed and watch it spin with a big grin on his face the whole time.

Belatedly - I wanted to share a couple of pictures...

This was my Christmas / anniversary gift from Truett... Tina @ Living without Sophia and Ellie made this beautiful necklace! I LOVE IT!!!


And then in a very special box all the way from Germany - Alice sent little man the most adorable sweater! And a hat for me too!!! (sorry, no pictures yet...)

Isn't going back to work hard? I dread it, and I haven't even had my children yet. Ha.

And that is such a beautiful necklace you received. :-D

I can only imagine how rough it must be to be away from him! I just absolutely love the necklace and sweater - and look at all that hair!
