Tim goes back to work tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast those two weeks went. I guess spending 2.5 of the days in the hospital didn’t help. We also lucked out with the holiday, so he only took 9 vacation days, which means more days to take for family fun later.
I’m not worried about being solo all day, in fact part of me is a little anxious that the next 11 weeks will go too quickly, considering how quickly these past 2 went! I just realized this morning, though, after Tim was up with her from around 4:30 or 5:00 until I woke up at 7:30, that we’re going to have to work on the overnight coverage, as Tim will need to get up and go to work. Luckily for us, with his new job, sometimes he’ll only be commuting to the guest bedroom/his new home office. Tomorrow, for instance, they are installing a business line for him, so he’ll actually be here all day, though he’ll have to be logged in and working … which will be nice, it’ll sort of wean me off of his being here all the time. It’s been a wonderful two weeks. The only downside is since I’ve been feeling up for doing something it’s been super hot & humid. So yesterday instead of heading to North Bridge in Concord for a walk, we hit Target & Bed Bath and Beyond.
Ev is doing really great. She’s been a little congested lately and we realized all the A/C was probably drying her out, so yesterday we got her a cute elephant humidifier (because an infant REALLY cares what their humidifier looks like). Hopefully that will help. She’s got frustrating fussy periods for sure, but we are usually able to get a decent night’s sleep (with a few breaks in there). She’s changing so fast that while it’s exciting to see what little person she will turn into, it’s sad that her face already looks bigger and her belly/ribs look wider, and she’s got a double chin! She’s already not the same tiny brand new baby!
