Oh No! Oh No! It's Back To Work I Go!

This past week was an eventful one. Oliver had a playdate on Sunday with our friends the Roberts and their 8 month-old daughter, Nory. I had a birthday, which is not eventful in and of itself, but the hubby surprised me by lining up a babysitter while we went out to dinner. A big thanks to the Clothiers for watching Oliver for an hour or so while the parents enjoyed a quiet dinner, where I actually got to chew my food for once, instead of inhaling it like I usually have to (in order to keep an eye on the little guy).
Also, sadly, I started work today (Friday). I kind of don't count it as my official start back date, since I am taking off Monday and Tuesday next week. So, there was no breakdown on my part this morning. I'm pretty sure that will happen on Wednesday. Nana Karen came up to watch Oliver for the day, as well as next week, and Aunt Jennifer flew in to meet Oliver for the first time! I think her red hair is a hit with him. He seems quite smitten with her! All in all, it was a good week, with lots of smiles and talking. I just can't seem to actually catch the smiles on camera.


  1. He is really growing. I know you will be sad when you leave him at daycare, but you couldn't leave him at a better place. They are so caring and kind.

  2. Thank you! Yes, we feel very lucky to have a place at Stepping Stones starting in October!
