Only one week left......

Next Monday, I have to leave this face. I cannot believe it's already been 12 weeks since his (very terrifying) birth. I'm glad that I've gotten to spend 12.5 weeks home with him, but I'm wishing for a few more months of strictly mom time!!

He has grown and changed so much in the past 12 weeks. He's already over 14 lbs, has grown more than 4 inches since birth, his head control is amazing lately (tummy time IS worth it!), and he is cooing and talking all the time. He loves to be on a schedule and his cues are really easy to read. God has certainly blessed B and I with this boy!

Hi Mommy!!!

We do love our daycare, and I was more than happy about our infant room, so I can't complain about the care he is going to get. I know his teachers will love him to death- they're already SO excited to have him full time.  It's just hard to know that the first time he rolls over will probably be there and that we'll miss some of his wonderful milestones. I love, love, love that SYT has great friends at daycare and is learning so much more than I would have taught him at this point, but the baby stage has been so wonderful with Peter that I'm definitely going to miss every day with him.

I have asked my work if going to part time is a possibility but I haven't gotten an answer on that yet. I know it wouldn't happen for a few months (due to scheduling and getting a new team member that needs training), but I am really, really hoping that my boss can make it work. I really think that a day home during the week with my boys would make a huge difference in my heart!!

I am excited to see my coworkers and my favorite patients, and I really do LOVE my job.  I am only sad to miss my sweet boy's smile in the middle of the day and the awesome cuddle sessions we have. We have already given him a bottle which he has taken to like a champ, so that is one worry off my plate. I already have a freezer stash of breastmilk, so as long as I can continue to keep up my milk supply daily at work, Peter should be set! I just pray he is as easy and loving for them as he is for us at home. Sweet boy, I will miss you!!!!


  1. I love the picture of you with the boys. I especially love the little one peeking over the couch in the picture!!

  2. I know, it's tough. Like you, though, we've had a wonderful daycare and the best of caregivers. Hopefully you will be able to go part-time. Employers need to be flexible if they want to retain top-notch talent.

  3. AEOT, I'm adding a part-time work set-up to my prayer list. Agree that even an extra day each week at home with your little men will make all the difference.



  4. Oh his sweet face melts me! Crossing my fingers you get to go part-time!


  5. Time is FLYING! He is a little bug. Love him.

  6. Oh, those cheeks! And a baby with easy cues who loves a schedule too . . . are you quite certain he's real?! That photo of you with the boys is terrific, by the way.

    Fingers crossed that part-time works out; sounds like the ideal combination!
