So much for thinking I’d have more time to update this blog. My maternity leave time is flying by, and I feel just as busy as ever. That leaves me nervous for how my life will be once I add work back into the mix.
Anyway, I took Little Man to the doctor on Monday, and turns out, he had gained almost a pound in 5 days, which is extremely healthy weight gain. The doctor says that convinces him that the problem was my milk (damn milk) before, meaning there either wasn’t enough or it wasn’t high enough in calories. So, we are forging ahead with formula supplementation and That Damn Pump. Wow, two profanities in one paragraph!
Little Miss’s name came up on a preschool list that we’d been on for two years. Although we just love the in-home daycare she has been at the past year, we truly think she is ready for a more school-like environment. So, we made the plunge, and Little Miss starts preschool on Monday. We went by today to meet her teacher, who is very nice and a tad Amish-like (blonde hair in braids, long sleeved shirt with long skirt, and really long, curly black hair on her legs). I think Little Miss will really like it. This will force me to get out of the house every day, as I’ve committed to taking her every day (she’ll go M-Th until I go back to work), and school starts at 8. I guess it will get me in the routine of getting 2 kids out the door before I go back to work! It was hard making the break from our current care taker, but I imagine we’ll be back to have her watch Little Man in a year or so.
Well, it’s now time for me to get Little Miss and take her to swimming lessons. Ciao!
