so, what’s happened in 7 months, you ask?!
+ i’ve lost track of any concept of time i had before.
+ i’ve learned that baby talk, making up songs, trying to remember nursery rhymes, making airplane noises while feeding a baby are ALL critical skills that keep babies happy. silas really likes this song i made up about his peeee-jayyyys.
+ i’ve learned that i have every intention of getting a TON of stuff done every single day…and then i realize i can celebrate when i only get 2 things done.
+ i’ve learned that leaving a 6 1/2 month old baby with his dad for a week is critical to maintaining your sanity AND to building a solid foundation for a father-son relationship.
+ i’ve learned that living in a loft is great if you’re single. less great if you’re in a relationship. and terrible if you have a baby.
+ i’ve learned that it’s okay to give your baby what he needs and that sometimes our bodies just give up on us. and that is totally okay. if/when this happens, refer to the first part of this point.
