I’m really enjoying maternity leave. We have a sort of loose schedule, but I really do like spending time with Justin–even when he’s throwing a fit. It’s going to be very hard to go back to work–and I’ve still been putting off the daycare search. I’ll try to call some places tomorrow. Today is pretty much reserved for laundry, dishes, thank you notes, making dinner, and finishing straightening the living room. It’s amazing how easily I get tired. But on the positive side, I’ve already lost 18 pounds from the pregnancy. I never knew that nursing could take so much out of a person!
The dogs have adjusted very well to Justin. Brittany, the hyper one, is less hyper, but she barks more. Both try to console him when he’s upset by licking his head. Somehow that doesn’t seem to be what my little guy wants so I have to shoo the dogs away. If Justin is really upset, Brittany will whine to make sure I know that I need to be doing something. Yes, they are very helpful. Which is why I’ve been keeping them locked in their kennels for most of the day.
