So, as you all know, this is my first week at my new job as full time mom. And I am loving it!
Monday was a holiday for the husband, so we spent some time in DC. We went to the National Cathedral and hung out in the gardens (which I love) and then briefly went inside and lit a candle for Ben's birth mom. Then we had lunch at a Mexican place, since apparently our all-time favorite pizza place is closed for lunch on Mondays. It was a gorgeous fall day and Ben had a great time playing in the gardens and looking at the stained glass windows inside the cathedral.
Tuesday was another sunny day which Ben and I spent outside playing. We also went to his 15 month checkup, which took forever and ended with them losing the paperwork we need for our adoption agency. Grrr. There was more playing in the afternoon and overall it was a fantastic day. What followed was a not so fantastic night. The husband went to check on Ben in the middle of the night to find him laying in his bed with what we think were seizures. Needless to say we totally panicked and rushed to the ER. We were seen quickly, but you could tell that the doctor thought we were complete idiots. We got a lecture on how febrile seizures are very common and then waited for another 1.5 hours until they finished our paperwork for Ben's discharge. Ugh. Yes, dear doctor, I promise not to come back. The next morning I was happy not to have to go to work! It was another beautiful day and I got lots of snuggles from my poor sick baby.
Yesterday I was happy again that I didn't have to leave the house, but this time because it was raining cats and dogs. Ben and I had a fun day at home with lots of snuggles and brief naps. I hate when he is not doing well, but I sure love the snuggles.
So far I really love being home. For the first time in months I feel like I can breathe again. I did laundry and dishes, went food shopping, and cleaned a little. I read tons of books to Ben and helped him draw with crayons. I fed him, and fed him some more. I chased him around the house and yard and I played hide-and-seek (the version for 15 month olds). He is just the cutest thing in the world and I can't take my eyes off of him. I feel so lucky that I get to spend this time with my little man!
