Hi Everyone!

I havent been on in a couple months if I remember correctly. I hope everyone is doing well & enjoying their little ones while they are still little. Biggrin My little guy Noel is not so little lol. Im not sure how big he is right now; he'll be 6mos on the 24th so I'll try to remember to update his info after that appointment. He was 17lb as of Christmas Eve, and I assume he hasnt gained much weight since considering he is much more active now. Hes able to roll over both ways now & has 2 teeth about halfway out. Hes a pretty happy guy most of the time but since we live out of state from our families & Im a sahm he's pretty attatched to me. My husband is a law student now at Notre Dame so we have a wonderful opportunity of being in a music class; his teacher recently graduated with an MBA in Music and is trying to build her resume with some experiance. He seems to enjoy the class and I definitely enjoy getting out and spending some time with my neighbors who have babies close to his age. We also go to 2 play groups; one through our apartment building for babies under the age of 2, & the other through our church. Hmm, what else? Im breastfeeding, cosleeping, & using a snuggybaby wrap/carrier, and a peekaru on top for warmth. Not sure what else to say so Im going to stop here & eat some lunch while Noel is still napping. I hope this finds everyone happy & healthy!

Yeah Im really grateful that I have the option of staying home. At first it felt strange to not be preparing to go back to work; now I cant imagine having to leave him everyday. Kudos to you moms that do! Please dont beat yourself up about it; it shows a stregth inside of you to persevere & go to work when you dont want to. To work hard in order to provide for your families future is LOVE.
