The first week was a blur. We were recovering from all the holiday festivities. Christmas and New Year were great - it was quiet. It was spent with family. And I continue to rest a lot too.
I am back at work again. It sure takes some getting used to. Leaving Baby Jack with the sitter wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I mean, after all I had already left him a week with his grandmother while I was at the hospital. I also have been leaving him with one of his aunts for an hour or so while I run errands around town. So, this was helpful. I felt a huge tinge of "missingness" while driving him to the sitter, but I didn't tear or anything.

1. My weakness: European chocolate cookies. Intervention needed. Pronto.
|I am imposing a 3-cookies-a-day rule.|
|His cousins fight over holding him.|
Even named a Cabbage Patch doll "Jack" so they both get a turn with the real "Jack."
|Don't worry. I had the whole thing set up and all I had to do is just turn it on.|
4. Last Monday and Tuesday were bad-weathered days for us. Sleet and ice. Roads were slushy, icy, and slippery. Dangerous driving.
