In-laws can be the best: to start off my second week of work, I was surprised with a dozen roses from Seth’s parents. Thank you so much, Ron and Carol. It’s been a difficult transition and it means a lot to have encouragement! I meant to post this photo earlier…these came two weeks ago and lasted until yesterday. I loved them.
I think there is a universal gut-reaction that mothers have to noise: Noise=good. When everyone is suddenly silent, I get suspicious. Are Seth and Jax plotting a big mess? Are they doing something dangerous they don’t want me to know about? Is he hanging upside down? Chewing on his dirty toes? On Sunday afternoon I had one such suspicion. The silence was just too loud so I had to see what was up. I found this:
I suppose resting up was a good idea, since we went to see friends Jon and Amanda for the most amazing spinach dip and enchiladas! the Super Bowl. We got home at 11:30pm and we wonder why Jax can’t figure out when bedtime is.
On Tuesday, we had another beautiful snow storm:
So once I came home from work we stayed inside and played. Tuesday is a short teaching day, so I was home by 11am. Fun!
Yesterday I just had to take some photos of Jax in his favorite sleeping position: head straight back at 90 degrees.
Then another surprise came yesterday in the mail. I guess Jax won’t have to search for the perfect outfit on February 14th:
Thanks again to the gang in Akron! Clearly Mommy’s not the only one that is loved.
