It is true what they say about time. It is moving to fast, please slow down. This month I feel has flown by. We did so much though. We visited Grandma and Grandpa at their jobs. They had so much fun showing you off. I drove you in the car all by myself for the first time! I love the mirror in the back seat I have so I can see you. I dreamed of having a baby of my very own in the back seat and now I have you. We did some shopping, maybe a little to much shopping! You went to a restaurant for the first time for Uncle Harry’s birthday and you were so good. You slept the whole time, you are such a party animal. You love being outside and in your stroller, but only if it’s moving. No standing still for you.
Apa got sick this month so we had to stay by Grandma and Grandpa for a few days. We didn’t want you to get it. You loved being there and they just love having you. For some reason you really like to poop when Grandpa is holding you. You make a face so we know that you are pooping. When Grandpa sees it he tells us that we have to be quiet so you can poop in silence! Your Grandpa is something else. You two are still very much two peas in a pod. I know that Apa missed you while we were gone so we did a lot of Face Time sessions so he could see you. Uncle Harry even babysat you so I could run errands. You took it nice and easy on him and slept the whole time!
When we finally did go back home you were pretty happy to have your swing back. I think you were also just happy to be back home in our own environment and our “routine”.
We celebrated your first Name Day on March 7th. We were going to have a party but when Apa got sick we had to cancel it. Grandma, Grandpa, and Great Grandma still came over. Grandma and Grandpa got you a rocking horse that has your name on it. We sat you on it and you weren’t quite sure what to make of it. Maybe once you get a little bigger you will like it.
It was also during this month that Apa and I decided that I wasn’t going to go back to work once my maternity leave was up. No more work for Momma, it’s going to just be me and you. This is something that I secretly hoped we could make work even before you were born. I just knew that I wanted to be a stay at home Mom.
I put you in your kangaroo pouch carrier for the first time to make dinner one night because if I put you down you cried. We can’t have that, so in the pouch you went. You loved it and snuggled right in.
You had your two month doctor’s appointment on the 9th of March. You had to get four shots. I felt so bad for you. You cried more though that they held your legs down than the actual shots themselves. Once again proving to us how strong you are. We had the appointment early in the morning so that we could see how you did after the shots. Let’s just say you weren’t a happy guy at all. I gave you some pain reliever and you took a nap. You woke up my happy Thomas and all was right in the world once again.
Thomas, you make it so easy for us to be your parents. You truly are the happiest baby that I have ever seen.
I love you to the moon and back.
