Back to Work

Zane and I went to a work party the Friday before I went back to work. Zane is a party animal!

Going back to work has been way easier so far than I thought it would be. I feel really confident in the ladies who run the daycare, and Zane seems happy. Except Thursday when I picked him up his flesh was *really* cold, so I dressed him up more warmly on Friday. And then Friday when I picked him up he had scrapes on his knuckles, so it's possible they're running a Baby Fight Club. I know that Zane likes other kids, so it’s good for him. He seems to be drinking his bottles, now, too which is good.

I’m really super tired right now, but I hope that will work itself out. This past weekend Zane had a bad cold and was cranky, and our sleep was not good. Then Tuesday night although he was sleepy and in his PJs when I picked him up at 9:30, he rallied and didn’t go to bed until 10:30. I had a lot of cleaning up to do after work, so I didn’t get in bed until 11:30. Then Zane woke up at 7. Since then I’ve been getting up at 6:30 to shower before he wakes up, and even though I get in bed on time, I’m not getting to sleep due to anxiety. And even though Zane’s sleeping through the night *I’m* not! So I’ve had about 6 hours of sleep a night all week and I’m kind of loopy!

At work I’m a bit harried in finding places and enough time to pump. Plus having enough time to eat. Eventually I’ll get it worked out. Everyone seems willing to help me out by cutting me some slack.

A funny thing -- On the way to dropping Zane off at daycare my first day back at work, I found myself doing a nervous tic where I rub the knuckle of my thumb. I realized I hadn't done it at all since I've been home with Zane, and boom! -- I'm at it again.

Wednesday I bought a stroller at Me ‘n’ Moms for $30! Now on walks Zane can sit looking forward like a big boy. I cleaned it up, and Michael got to use this weekend. I can’t wait to try it out myself.

Michael and Zane have been doing well this weekend! Zane is eating and sleeping fairly well, but unfortunately today had what Michael called a Poopocalypse. It's amazing sometimes how much poop can come out of a sweet little baby.

Here is aforementioned sweet little baby:
Zane has become very interested in Bijou and JoJo lately, mostly because they have such nice soft fur. They will be very sorry when he learns to crawl.
That's all I can think of for now. Moo!
