Mommy is off to her first day of work.
Sunday, August 19, 2007
I survived my first week of work! It actually wasn't nearly as bad as I had expected. I went in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and each day, the time just flew by! Of course, I was very anxious to get home to my little guy and left quite punctually each day. It was great to see my friends at work but it sure is hard to get back into the swing of things. It's going to take a little while...
Sebastian had a great time with Abuelita and she took lots of pictures so I could see exactly how his day went. I will try to post some of them later when I have more time. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers - I know they made it much easier to go back to work!

Today, Sarah came over with Jackson (6 months) to play. The boys were cooing away at each other. It was so cute!

Greetings! It is nice to be back home! We had a wonderful time visiting family in Michigan and at my high school friend Brian's wedding in Indiana. We were gone for 10 days and it was truly a vacation - we really got to relax since we were staying with Paul's parents at the cottage on the lake and they were more than happy to entertain Sebastian and even change diapers! We spent our days catching up on sleep, playing cards, eating lots of yummy things like freshly picked raspberries, and just hanging out with the family. A big highlight was the annual Port Huron-Mackinac sailboat races the weekend we left. Over 200 boats sailed right past the cottage and it was beautiful!
Sebastian adapted very well to all of the changes and traveling. On the plane rides he was content in my sling mostly sleeping and nursing. He also loved all the attention while we were at the cottage and spent lots of time playing on the floor where he rolled over for the first time. In a matter of a week we saw lots of changes in him - it's amazing how fast the time goes!
Now it's back to trying to find a routine. Everyone asks how he is sleeping: pretty well. He only wakes up once a night and usually lets us sleep until 8 am or so. Next week is my last full week at home with him before I return to work. I'm anxious to go back because I hate to leave him, but at the same time I'm looking forward to being "out in the world" again. Luckily, my manager is allowing me to start out part-time, three days a week, until I fall into a better routine and am able to balance work and home. It's such a blessing and will make it so much easier to leave him. Also, we are lucky that my mom is going to be watching Sebastian part-time and I know that he will be happy, loved and enjoy being with his Abuelita.
This weekend we are off to Gainesville to meet up with Tio Daniel and see some friends. He'll be taking his first University of Florida tour and see our good old alma mater. Maybe he can apply for early admission? =) Enjoy the pics and thanks for checking in!
