It's been a month...

Yesterday marked a month since The Wife went back to work and I went solo in the evenings with Lil Money. Let me just say, that this week it’s finally taken it’s toll on me. Granted it’s probably due to the recent storms and him getting back on schedule after his run in with the healthcare system, but the lack of sleep has also added up or is it (subtracted down?).

-His little eyes looking back at me as I’m holding him.
-His cute –yeah I said it- little chuckle.
-His cooing, just talking and talking.
-Backyard time.
-Bath time.
-He likes to listen to me play the guitar and doesn’t know I’m no good at it.
-Nap and sleep time.

-Crying (period)

I look forward to the days, weeks, months and years to come. I love the rain and know we need it but I hope it lets up soon, I don’t know what to do with this boy when we can’t spend time outside. I hate watching TV with him and usually only get a few minutes in when he’s napping, otherwise I’m trying to entertain him and keep him happy; talking to him, reading or singing. But he always wants to be carried around and for a little one he does start to get heavy after a while. I can’t wait until he can start crawling and sitting on his own, I guess that will be the next milestone. Plus I’ll be able to get things done around the house before 10pm as he follows me around. That or I’ll have to watch him even closer, making sure he’s not eating cat food.

This boy really loves the taste of his hands. :)

That's so funny to hear you say that about the rain. Now you know what it's been like for me the last 3.5 years when we get days & days of rain. Especially now with an active toddler, man, we NEED to get outside ASAP!!! It's no bueno to be cooped up inside!

And no, you want him to just harmlessly sit there. Once he's on the's over! :) I wish Delaney would sit still for just 2 seconds. Not happening!

Sounds like you're doing great Daddy Diego!

Thanks, I don't know if I'm doing great but I am trying.

I have yet to take him out of the house, shopping or to eat so that will be my next endeavor. Hope I can manage that.

In the mornings after you leave, we sit in the garage and watch it rain.. and I attempt to explain weather to him.
