I can’t believe that, in the blink of an eye, we’re already at the two month mark with baby G. It has been a rollercoaster, full of delights and challenges each day. I’m happy to say that the constant fussiness is abating; he’s far more alert, playful, interactive. I even caught a few smiles from him yesterday!
We have gone and completed his two month vaccines at the doctor’s. I’ll admit, I was worried something would go wrong, but he took them like a champ. Cried a bit then slept most of the day, otherwise no real reaction! He’s grown a TON…doubled his birth weight and is now over 10 pounds. He’s grown 4 inches in length and is all around way more fun to hang around.
J and I are both back at work. G starts daycare in a week, and I’m nervous. We have a nanny right now, but it’s not working out well, so we agreed to put him in daycare for consistency. It’s hard being back at work, but I am doing well with it…I’ve realized I’m a far better mom when I have the separation of work and home life.
I’m excited to see where we are a month from now! The adoption legalities are going smoothly, just hanging in there. I’ll be so excited once we have a date for finalization, though I realize it’s a few months away. It’ll be here before I know it, if the past few months have been any indication!
That’s about all for now. We’re growing and learning how to be a family of three, and loving every minute!
