1. remember to trust my gut
2. go back to keeping a gratitude journal....include updates on Parker
I started keeping a daily mini-journal of gratitude and milestones of Parker. Pretty much I write down what I am grateful for and then anything new or exciting that happened with Park that day. I am sure it will help me if we ever have baby #2 and it helps me keep track for this blog too. I swear the days all blend together when you are home with a little one all day.
Little man is finally up to 11lbs 2oz. He is holding his head up better and loves to grab my shirt. Daddy and I have enjoyed some nice long walks with him lately because the weather has been in the high 60s and sunny! I even enjoyed a much needed beer one night to relax.
Aunt Karen and I took Park over to meet Great Grandma Helen this week. We got some nice pictures of her holding him. She was so amazed with how little he is. Which is funny, because I think he is huge now compared to when he was born.
Learning to trust my gut again... I was getting so good at this during pregnancy but it has become tough again. So much to learn about a new baby. So many emotions. I constantly question if what I am doing is "right". But really there is no "right". As long as we are happy and healthy...who cares. I need to remember how to not care about what others think. Easier said than done.
Time for me to find a new job...... I have officially decided to take the whole year off. I may go a bit crazy staying at home all day, but I just know I won't be happy letting someone else take care of my boy while I teach. I have put in 10 good years of teaching and am ready for a change. Hopefully this will push me to find a new job and will eventually lead to us moving.
