Will is 12 weeks today! He’ll be 3 months next week. Crazy. Also crazy? His hairdo here – I washed his hair last night and when it’s wet, it’s curly. It dries straight, but sometimes sticking up all over the place. I just put a hat on him to go for a walk and that flattened it down a bit.
Will is starting to “talk” to us more – he makes “goo” and “kee” sounds and is figuring out what his voice sounds like. He still loves to kick his rattles hanging on his bouncy seat and above him on the play mat and is working on rolling over from back to front when he lays on his back. He’s still sleeping in his bassinet in our room and when he does wake up to eat in the night he goes right back to sleep. He’s also had a couple nights going to bed around 10:30, so maybe we’ll be able to back it off from midnight after all.
This is the week I’m going back to working full time hours – part time from home, so our part time nanny started yesterday. Pray for us all as we make this transition! It’ll be an adjustment, but I’m sure it’ll work out just fine. I woke up to pump in the middle of the night before Will woke up last night to help build up the stock in the freezer so that we can keep nursing even when I’m away – it hasn’t been an easy process so far. I think my schedule for the next few months will be consist of sleeping, feeding Will, and working (not necessarily in that order) and that my craft supplies should just get packed away, sad as I’ll be to temporarily part with them. I was surprised to be able to keep up with laundry and dishes on an almost daily basis on maternity leave (for the first time ever) so hopefully they don’t start piling up now and we can keep eating semi-healthful meals. Carl still has 1.5 classes to finish up for his MBA, but we’re counting down the days til graduation now!
