ONE. Caleb had his two month doctor’s appointment on Monday. He now weighs just over 15 pounds (!) which is the 96th percentile, and is 24 inches long. My baby boy is BIG! He did pretty well with his shots, and just cried for a couple of minutes. I was a proud mama! Also… Caleb has his own jam these days. Every single time he hears “Love Me Like You Do,” he instantly stops crying. He is also entranced by the music video. Appropriate? Probably not.
TWO. The weather has finally turned a bit this week. It was around 60 degrees out yesterday which was by and far our warmest day of the year so far, so I’ve been enjoying going for walks and getting some fresh air finally. I even went for an hour long walk with a girlfriend on Wednesday which was really nice. I’m waiting for it to warm up just a touch more, and then I’ll be out walking with Caleb in the stroller… can’t wait!
THREE. I’m going back to work on Monday. This has been the quickest 12 weeks of my life, and I can’t believe my maternity leave is just about over. I’m going to miss my little man, but I also feel that it will be good for me to get back out into the world. I’ve kind of been feeling like I’ve been in my own little bubble since Cal was born. Mamas, how did you deal with going back to work?
FOUR. I’ve been getting into a lot of TV shows since I’ve been out on maternity leave. Most recently, I started watching “Dancing With the Stars” for the first time ever because CHRIS SOULES. Seriously, I was such a huge fan of “The Bachelor” that I decided to watch DWTS even though I’ve never had any interest. I have to say, I’m actually starting to enjoy it! I want him to win, but I really don’t think that’s going to happen. Rumer, Riker, and Willow are definitely the most talented I’d have to say. Jerry and I also took the plunge and signed up for Amazon Prime the other day when I was frantically searching for a humidifier for Caleb (he’s congested) and wanted it delivered in two days. There’s a whole slew of shows on there too that I want to watch now… not to mention my Netflix queue. Too many shows, too little time!
FIVE. I’ve been able to read a decent amount again finally! Last week, I finished my first book since Caleb was born 10 weeks ago. Right before he was born, I started The Wedding Bees by Sarah-Kate Lynch, and I finally finished it. It was pretty cute! Now I’m reading a really awesome parenting book called The Sh!t No One Tells You by Dawn Dais. It’s hilarious, honest, candid, and she touches on subjects that most people are afraid to talk about when it comes to parenting. I’ve been reading every night again because Caleb is finally sleeping well (fingers crossed that doesn’t change). He typically goes to sleep between 9 and 10, and sleeps until around 8! It’s been amazing; I know what sleep is again! I usually stay up for a couple of hours after he goes to bed because it’s my “me time” where I get to read, catch up on blogs, etc.
Happy weekend, everyone! I can’t believe this is my last one before returning to work… better make it count! Luckily, Jerry is going in early and getting out early today (he usually works until 2 AM) so I finally get to spend a weeknight with my hubby! We’re also excited for Caleb’s first Easter and will be spending the day with family. Do you have any plans?
