5 months and back to work

October 23, 2016

5 months!

Samuel – He is still a very happy baby. He looks around the room to make eye contact with people and just smiles and laughs when someone looks at him..he especially loves when Jonen is looking at him. He is a charmer! He has found his feet in the last week and just loves grabbing them. He still has little interest in rolling over. When he has tummy time, he somehow manages to scoot forward instead. He has super strong legs! He does like to roll from his back to his side. He has great hand/eye coordination and is getting good at putting everything in his mouth. Sleep….it is still rough. He gets up twice a night on average. This morning he was wide awake at 4:00 am.

Jonen – He tries to be our little comedian. If you have ever been over for dinner, you know Jonen loves to disappear to his room and put undies on his head. Apparently, he has been discussing politics at the lunch table at school. Very funny to hear reports from his teacher now about their conversations. He is definitely demanding more of our attention now and is also an early riser. He loves his little brother and holds his hand on the way to school. He is also in the habit of memorizing his books now and “reading” them to us. He loves going to the library to get a stack of books.

Beth – I’m headed back to work part time. I’m going to be the Career Center Director at City University. Eek. I’m super nervous to leave Samuel, and I’m happy I was able to stay home with him for 5 months. This time off has been a blessing for me to think about next steps in my career. I realize I really want to become a Counselor for women at various stages of their fertility journey. This job will help with that transition. We are interviewing two nannies this week to find care for Samuel.

Brandon – Bran gets to hang out with Samuel one day a week starting in November. There will be a Daddy/Sam Sam day on Wednesdays. Still playing frisbee rain or shine and just trying to keep the train moving. It is nice for me to watch him do such a great job as a father and husband.

Please come and visit us! All of our holiday traditions are off this year, so we need some company!!
