First Week

Well, today is the last day of my first week at home with Evan alone. It went really well, and I'm actually enjoying it much more than I thought I would!

I was really stressed about it in the days leading up to Monday. I wasn't sure that there would be enough time in the day to feed/change/hold/play with Evan AND be able to eat/pump/do other stuff for myself. But, it turns out, even though the days fly by, there is a lot of time in the day to get things done! I think one thing that has helped is I started to shower in the evening while DH is home. This gives him some time alone with Evan, I don't have to rush through it, and it's one less thing I have to do during the day.

Evan and I also had two play dates this week! On Tuesday, a friend and her son came over to our house, and yesterday I took Evan to another friend's house to visit her and her boy. In both cases the babies didn't really notice each other, but it was good for us mommies :) Eventually they'll start to interact though, and it will be fun to watch I'm sure!

Evan has clearly grown out of all his 1-3 month clothes now, especially his full-body sleepers. They actually fit fairly well on the body, but they are SO short on his legs and arms. We've actually gone a bit ghetto and cut the feet off of some of them so we don't have to buy new ones yet! I think I'll have to bite the bullet this weekend though and get him some new sleepers --- maybe some without feet so they last longer!
