Random Update

Here is the update I promised - but it is going to be random. I have so many thoughts in my head of things to blog about, so I think that I'll just "get it all out" in bullet form!

*First and foremost - we are still completely over the moon in love with our little guy and some days we can't believe we are so lucky to have him in our lives.

*The transition to daycare has been completely smooth and seamless. Drew is happy as can be when we pick him up each day and we couldn't be happier about the care that he is getting!

*Going back to work sucks! I really wish we were independently wealthy so that I could stay home - but we're not! I can't wait to get out of work each day to go and pick up the Little Man!

*Speaking of back to work - it's like I never left! The same kids are still naughty, I've fallen right back into the routine, and I just keep counting the days until vacation. I have had a very warm welcome back - especially from the kids so that has been nice.

*Drew continues to sleep like a champ - most nights from 8:15 - 6:00. We have to wake him up in the mornings!

*I wish our house would magically clean itself, the laundry would get done, and someone would make dinner for us. I didn't realize how nice it was to be home and be able to do some of those things during the day. Now it just all waits for us in the evenings.

*I have been able to pump enough milk to keep up with what Drew eats while at the sitter during the day. I am so happy about that! I pump 3X a day at work and another 2X at home. I am also nursing him 3 - 4 times a day.

*The weather is finally nicer here and we have been going for walks when we get home. Drew loves taking in all of the sights and seeing the trees, sky, etc. We still have about a foot and a half of snow in our yard, but it is melting slowly.

*I'll leave you with a family pic that my cousin took of the three of us when we were in Florida last month.
