I can’t even believe it. My baby turned one this week. ONE! Remember this? He was so tiny. It feels like such a giant feat. We did it. We made it one whole year as parents!
We had been on the wait list at our #1 daycare since last July. Luckily, I wasn’t planning to go back to work full-time and so we weren’t in a rush trying to figure out childcare. We decided to stay on the list since we didn’t know what situation we would find ourselves in when we finally got in. Well, after many months of waiting, we were accepted just this month.
Life’s been a series of up and downs lately. I feel like there’s just never enough time to get things done. Milo has been having a huge sleep regression and it’s been hard on me. I love spending my days with him, but I’m also feeling super motivated by work and it’s just hard to find time for it all — and time to take care of myself. How do people do it? I’m currently looking for a little extra help a few hours a week, and I think that should make a big difference. I find myself on my phone too much when Milo is around, and trying to multitask, which is never very effective. I want to be more present — the time goes so fast.
Milo has been sick this week with croup. It’s so sad having a sick baby… and it makes me feel very lucky for having an otherwise healthy baby. It’s been a rainy and raw few days, and it finally seems dry out today. I’m excited to get outside for a little walk, and hoping that the fresh air will do us both good.
