5 Weeks

Here is my big boy!  Time is flying so fast with this little guy around.  I just feel so lucky every day and especially days when I have gotten some sleep the night before.  I have to say how thankful I am for my husband.  He has done such a wonderful job allowing me to get some sleep at night.  He has still been taking the PM shift so I usually try to get to sleep by 9:00-10:00 BUT last night I fell asleep at 8 and only got up to pump at 12:30 and up at 4:30 to feed and then slept until 8:30 AM!  I feel amazing today!

This week we are still working on strengthening neck muscles which he has great control, lots of tummy time and starting to play with some toys in his play gym.  He seems very alert and can follow with his eyes.  I even got some little smiles earlier this week!  I'm waiting for the big SMILE!

This week I really am starting to focus on planning my goals that I wanted to achieve in 2014.  I am going in this week for my volunteering opportunity which I will share more in my next post.  I have my trip to MN planned for the first weekend in June and I also started doing some small workout activity while Richard lays on his tummy and watches me.  Today I did the sit up and kiss!! He was on my tummy and I would do a crunch and kiss the top of his head. 

I have 2 1/2 weeks left of my maternity leave and some big changes brewing at work.  I'm not going to go into detail, but it leaves me with a few questions left on my future there.  What a frustrating thing to think about when I'm just ready to get into a routine when I get back.  Only time will tell.

That's all for now!
