4 Months Today

Yes LC has turned yet another month!! I ask myself where is the time going? It was just like yesterday LC was born and he looked like this
and look at him now

he's a skater boy! Now that I'm back to work I feel like it's going to go by even faster. I just hope that I don't miss too much of his first time happenings. Last Sat I got to witness him turning from his tummy to his back. R and me were so freaking excited. Then today I got to witness him turning from his back to his tummy. So far I'm not missing any "first times", yet. Last week I also started him with a tiny bit of Rice cereal. At first I thought he was going to dislike it, but no. Not once did he push out the cereal, on the other hand he slurped it. We were amazed at how much he liked it. 
He's also trying to sit on his own. When we have him in a laying down position in our arms he is always pulling himself up for us to sit him up. He HAS to up because he wants to know what's going on around him at all times. I tried to sit him up on his own and he did good for a few seconds. After that he was going forward or to the sides. Lastly, picking him up after work is such a joy. He gets so happy and gives me a big smile. He kicks and bounces in his bouncer waiting for me to pick him up. LC is so hilarious!! That is what I look forward to everyday.

Back To Work!

After having almost 20 weeks off this was the day I was dreading, going back to work. I began to feel the anxiety sinced last month because I couldn't believe that my time with LC was coming to an end. 
Last month I began to look around for daycare centers, but in the area I needed LC to be was inpossible. I was only able to find a whole lot of home daycare centers. I looked at every single one in the area and not one I felt comfortable with.  At the end I decided to leave LC with a niece who decided to be a SAHM. So as my first day of work was quickly approaching, I started to feel so sad. I cried and cried. Hubby assured me that he will be o.k. and I will be o.k. On Tuesday I ended up getting to work late because I was having a really hard time leaving him. My sister in law happened to be off from work so she was there to assist her daughter in law with LC. There was no sense to even wear make up because it all came off within a half hour. I couldn't stop crying. My sister thought it was funny, but whatever. 

I was able to get over it and each day was better, long, but better. I always looked forward to coming home to my family, but this time we have LC in the picture. Since I'm still BFing him it's our catching up time.

LC is a thumb sucker since day one. I think it's so cute!
