So baby boy finished his 1st week of daycare.


What a relief.

I thought that between the two of us there'd be a whole lot of tears, sniffles & whining. Turns out I was the only doing any of that.

Actually I did pretty well. I only called about twice a day to check on him but I did show up early to pick him up. He, on the other hand, was amazing. As a matter of fact, by the 3rd day he was giggling every time I put him in the car seat. It was like he knew he was off to do his thing while I did mine. "Yeah, Mommy. You do you and we'll hook up later."


I started him at daycare this week since I'll be going back to work on the first and I thought it would be overwhelming to do it all at once. Practice makes perfect as they say, and I wanted to make sure the transition back into my old routine goes smoothly.

The other huge thing this week is that he's got a few new tricks. I don't know if he's picking it up from other kids or if it's just time for him to meet these milestones but here they are in no particular order:

He's chewing his tongue.
He's blowing crazy bubbles all the time.
He's folding his hands.
He's grabbing at things.
He's talking up a storm
He's lifting himself up off the floor during tummy time.

He's 9 and a 1/2 weeks old... Amazing!

Have I said lately how proud I am to be this kid's mom? Seriously, I love him something awful.

I'd love to hear from you. Please share your baby's milestones in the comments section.

  1. It's so exciting to see them do something new, espcially after weeks of their only talents being eating, burping, pooing and sleeping. I'm amazed each day how how much Nugget changes. Once he hit 6 months his development skyrocketed and it hasn't stopped. It's the best ride ever!
