Sorry I’ve been missing in action for so long. I’m trying hard to prioritize what’s important in my life. I’ve been spending more time with Connor & trying my hardest to keep the house clean. There are only a few hours per day for me to get everything done.
6:30 Out of bed
6:45 Connor wakes up
7:30 Leave for work/drop baby off
8:05 Drop Connor off
8:30 Get to work
Work, work, work
5:00 Ahhhh, leave work (if I’m lucky to leave on time)
5:30 Pick Connor up (take a few minutes to chat w/ Mom about his day)
5:50-6: Leave for home
6:30 Get home
6:30-9 Play w/ Connor, make dinner, clean up etc. etc. etc.
Connor goes to bed
9-10:00 Try to get some other projects done now that Connor has gone to bed & can’t get into everything.
I know this is the same for every full time working mother but it’s tough (FOR ALL OF US). And, I’m in no way saying being a stay at home mom is easy. IT’S NOT! I did it for 2 months. But, I hope to do it again soon. Garrett & I are trying to make the finances work. We want to be financially stable (his student loan paid off & an emergency fund built) before I take the plunge.
Anyway………………………What I really want to talk about is how Connor is going to be a year old in LESS THAN A MONTH!!!!! How did this happen??? He’s changed so much from the squishy little newborn I brought home from the hospital.
Update on what he’s doing:
He WALKS!! Like really walks. He walks across entire rooms & maneuvers around & over things without falling over. He started walking a little before he reached 10 ½ months but it was just a few steps then. He’s been full on walking for about 2 weeks now.
Still crawls some but definitely prefers to walk.
Says momma (Garrett argues whether he knows what he’s saying or not, but I think he does) & dada.
Opens drawers (thank goodness Garrett’s been putting baby proofing up)
Crawls up & DOWN stairs.
Climbs off of the couch properly.
Has 5 teeth & is working on a sixth.
Wears size 3 diapers
Wears 6-9 month clothes
He is still a little peanut. According to my bathroom scale he’s 19 pounds.
He has the sweetest smile & loves to laugh. He throws the occasional temper tantrum but is overall a happy boy.
