2 month check-up!!

Today Noah had his 2 month check-up. He will be 10 weeks tomorrow so just little off on the dates but his doc was out of town last week.
He weighs 12lbs (50 percentile) and is 25 1/4 inches long (95 percentile)! The doc says he is doing great!!!! He actually didn't cry that much when he got his shots and recovered nicely. He stopped crying as soon as I picked him up. I cried when he cried but I recovered quickly as well.
School is going well. I still wish I didn't have to leave him but I have a great sitter and a great class.

survived going back to work!

Ok going back to work was so hard. I was almost late because I didn't want to let him go. I cried so hard and held on so tight. Pat is taking him to the sitters since he doesn't have to be at work until 10 most days. When I got to school, I started crying everytime someone asked me how I was. How do you think I am I just left my 8 week old baby for the first time. The kids were so sweet though. They had all made me welcome back cards and told me they were going to keep me happy all day!! I rushed out as soon as I could. When I walked in the sitters house, Noah smiled and giggled. She said he did great!!!! ( thats what she said everytime I called, too )
Friday was easier , mainly because I was yelling at pat. He hasn't been feeling too good and wouldn't get out of bed. I told him he needed to take advantage of the time that I am still at home to take a shower and what not. He finally got up just as I was burping Noah and it was 5 min until I needed to leave. I said well I hope Noah will cooperate and let you get ready or you may just have to go to work stinky! He claimed that, that was his plan to distract me so I wouldn't cry as I was leaving (whatever!). I did cry a little in the car but nothing like the day before.
I'm glad next week is a short week!! only three days!!!! Thanks for all the well wishes!! I think it is going to be ok but still I would prefer to stay home with him. But the sitter is a close family friend and just has Noah and her child who is 2. On Tuesday and Thursday her little girl goes to sonshine school so she only has Noah for most of the day!!!!
Ok I am going to go love on my boy who is starting to wake up from his nap!!!

back to work tomorrow!!

I can't believe it has already been 8 weeks and I have to go back to work. Everytime I think about it I start crying. There was a couple of times today that Noah looked at me like whats wrong with you crazy woman!
I just can't bear the thought of being away from him all day. I will miss him so much. The babysitter doesn't know how he likes to be held while being rocked (ok I have told her and showed her severeal times when we have been at her house, letting Noah get to know her)But she won't do it as good as me! She can't make the silly noises that make him laugh like I can.
I know she will take really good care of him but I just don't want to leave him. I never dreamed it would be this hard. I can't imagine how I am going to be in the morning.
He felt a little warm this morning, so I was secretly hoping he had a fever so I could stay home with him tomorrow. No such luck, I mean I don't want him to be sick but I just want more time home with him.
So just think of me tomorrow as I am bawling my eyes out in the morning!! This is going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do!

Well today is my 26th birthday!!! We went to my church in Henyetta with my family. Everyone just loved all over Noah!!! It is so weird going back to church there because it is so small. Today attendance was 140 and thats good!! We had a good 'ol potluck lunch and then headed over to my parents. My older sister came over with the kids. My neice and nephews just love Noah (their only cousin)!!!
I remember when I was a kid and thinking what my life would be like when I was in my 20's.
I have everything I always wanted, a great husband, a wonderful child, a cozy home, a great career!! I can't believe I am now offically closer to 30 than 20!

Happy Birthday to me!!!
