I’ll say it again…Zane is 3m old today! I just can’t believe how time can go by so fast. And I hate the fact that I haven’t been blogging about this little guy a lot more. I mean so much has happened and I feel like I should have been documenting it better.
Things he likes: smiling, cooing, falling asleep in my arms, falling asleep on my chest, moving his arms and legs constantly, demanding food immediately, being swaddled, holding my hand while eating, diaper changes, baths, sitting up, looking around, watching TV, car rides, stroller rides, chewing on his hands, drooling
Things he dislikes: tummy time (unless on my chest), being cradled in my arms, naps, when I take too long getting his bottle, sometimes the swing
I have ordered so many things from Amazon that I think they’ve assigned me my own driver, or at least I feel they should. I buy and try different things for him and some I’ve returned. I really should blog about the items we both have loved so far, but that would require me to blog more. Ha! I’ll try.
Thanksgiving: Well obviously I have many things to be thankful for this year. Zane, my mom, my friends, and my job. They all mean so much to me. Mom and I made some food and just had a nice chill day. I took my own “first Thanksgiving” pic of Zane. There are going to be so many “firsts”!
Christmas: It was great. Not going to lie, having him here…finally, is such a blessing that I went overboard on gifts. I mean seriously, he can’t open of gifts yet and doesn’t understand Santa but I had to do it anyway. Next year he’ll probably be more interested but only in the wrapping paper. We did the whole Santa picture thing, but I haven’t scanned it in yet so I can’t post it here. 😦 I also had some professional photos taken with my mom as well. So it was the three of us. Very special and they came out so good!
Ugh, so as my maternity leave comes to an end, I hate the thought of going back to work and leaving this sweet little boy. I technically started last week but work allowed me to work from home the rest of the year, so I go back into the office on Monday, Jan 4th. AND that means it will be Zane’s first day of daycare.
I know Zane will be fine, I mean, it’s going to be all ME. I’ll eventually be okay but until then I will miss him. I don’t think I’ll be one of those mother’s who cry all the way to work, but you never know. I’ve printed out a bunch of photos so I can plaster them all over my cubicle wall.
The daycare I picked is the lowest price I could find and they are right in my neighborhood. So I’m going with them unless or until I have a problem with them, but I don’t think I will. They have one other infant, H, that is about 10m so Zane will learn a lot from watching this little boy. It will be good for him.
Well I’m off to bed now. I really do and will try to blog more often. Once I go back to work I’ll be able to do some during lunch.
