Someone's been hitting the Giggle Juice...

My weekends now include having a bit of extra time that I can use to catch faces like these:

I might in fact be the luckiest mama alive.

Mommy's back to work.

My first week back at work is on the books.  It was hard.  Really, really hard.  On me, I mean.  I've spent a lot of time crying, looking at his pictures, thinking about him, and crying more.  I hate this.  I hate everything about it.

Right now, Aidan is with his dad Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and at school Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I don't know which is harder on me, but the boy seems equally happy with both.  He's such an easy kid. 

The M/W/F setup is tough because i hate handing him over to Tom knowing that I'd rather keep him with me.  I hate knowing he's home and I'm not.  It sucks.

The Tues/Thurs setup is a little easier, if only because he goes to school a few minutes from my office, and I can visit him during lunch. 

We're still working to get into a routine.  Bonus points if I eventually stop feeling like I want to die every time I leave for work.

What happened to my little tiny?

Added photos to his February and March galleries!

His official 2 month picture!!!

The photo session wasn't all puppies and rainbows.  Mostly, it was crying.  Lots of crying.

Also, plenty of our trademark Aidan face:

2 Months!

Okay, so, in fairness - he's almost 2 1/2 months now.  Because mommy got too busy to update her blog.  Shocking, right?

My little hippo weighed in at 11 lbs 1 oz and 22 inches tall!  Truckin' along in the 25th percentile still, which is really nice given that he was below the 5th percentile at his first visit.  We're pretty proud of him :)

Pictures to follow, as soon as I get them off my camera.  Month 2 brought us smiles, giggles, more sleep, and lots of cooing.
