Koala Baby

Hi All! Well, it's been awhile since my last update, I know. It's been busy and we've got so much going on.... we're just trying to survive like everyone else I guess.

So Aaron is 3 months old now! These are pictures are of Aaron after a bottle. He fell asleep on me and Josh said he looked like a little koala bear. He weighs over 13 lbs now and is a long boy! He opens his hands all the time now - they're not closed up in tight little fists anymore. He's reaching for things and grabbing his stuffed toys, our fingers and my hair (ouch!). He's "talking" alot more and he laughs... it's so adorable. Babies are so funny though - you can do something that will make him laugh and the next time you try it he looks at you like he's going to cry. Now all you have to do is smile and goo at him (if he's in a good mood) and he'll smile right back.

The other day Josh came home from work and Aaron looked up at him as soon as he walked in the door and smiled and reached out his hand to Josh! It was so cute! I'm convinced Aaron gets sick of seeing my face everyday. Wouldn't you?!

He's doing well though. Now I'm just struggling with the idea of going back to work - and probably sooner than I had hoped out of necessity. There was one day I cried all afternoon when the idea of going back to work hit me and I was so upset about missing anything with him and having someone else taking care of him. I know it's just part of life and plenty of women do it, but I know it's going to be hard. I miss him just thinking about it.
That's life. He is going to be ok and we'll survive.

I'm still not taking him out much - I took him to work for a visit and of course he decided to be grumpy that day. I wish the weather was better so I could take him for walks at least but he's still eating every 2 - 3 hours so there's not much you can do when you take him out anyway.
Aaron will have another appointment towards the end of April and we'll get his new weight then!

Hope you all out there are surviving! ((HUGS))
