End of an Era

Well, my month at home with “the Boy” (aka Little G) is rapidly drawing to a close. Tomorrow I go back to work.

Today is also my birthday, so it’s a little bittersweet that my “present” is being done with my month. ๐Ÿ™

I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed and cherished this month even more than I expected. I knew it would be “fun” and “wonderful”, blah blah blah… I didn’t realize how much I’d really enjoy spending all day every day with my little guy.

He’s grown and changed so incredibly much just in this month, it’s hard to believe. We started out the month targeting a couple of things for our time:

  • Solidifying the scheduling Jodi had started — getting him to sleep and eat and play at the right times during the day and sleeping (give or take) regularly through the night.
  • Increased acceptance and success with “tummy-time”

Well, we knocked both of those out of the park — Little G now sleeps regularly through the night (Thanks BabyWise!), and we’re doing great with tummy-time too!

Yesterday we ran in the Pumpkin Push 5k (our 3rd time with this race and Gabriel’s 2nd… sort of). We convinced MIL to run the race with us as well, and we got a couple of great photos! My camera was acting up, so good thing MIL had hers along!

    What a precious pumpkin! I’ll bet his parents love him to pieces. ๐Ÿ™‚
