I love that I have been given the amazing opportunity to stay home with Jack, because I couldn't imagine missing out on every moment. I was supposed to go back to work a week and a half ago, and I think it would have been harder than I ever thought to say bye to Jack each day. I definitely see myself going back to work in the future, but for the time being I am savoring this little guy's face.
I go a little stir crazy in the apartment every day by myself since Jonathan is out in California at work. I vowed to myself that I will get out at least once a day. Since walking outside really isn't an option here in Colorado during the winter, Jack and I have gone mall walking a few times. My friend Emily and her baby, Louise, join in on the fun. The mall is great, because they have nursing rooms, so you don't have to rush home to do feedings. Jack loves sleeping during our walks while waking occasionally to people watch and look at all the lights at the mall.
I have also been trying to start using the moby wrap. It is one of the more confusing carriers, but once Jack is in it, it is wonderful. I went over to a maternity store to have the owner show me how to use it, and Jack passed out the second he was resting against my chest. I went home and tried to do it myself the next day and could not seem to get it down, so I'm going to have to stop by the store again for another review. I thought I did it right until Jack came out the bottom of the wrap :).
