It's been 3 months since this little guy entered our lives and while the days (and some nights) are long, time seems to have flown by! Maybe it's still pregnancy brain, but I feel like I have already forgotten things that have happened since he was born. He's getting too big! I want him to stay small, but yet I can't wait for him to get bigger and hit all the milestones (sleeping through the night, sitting up, etc.) I am looking forward to the warmer weather and can't wait to be outside all summer with Roman.
Roman weighed 13lbs at his 2 month appointment, so he's is really getting big. He has grown out of so many little clothes. I feel sad already packing them up when he only wore them once or twice.
A friend asked me the other day if I loved being a mom and I truly do. I can't even believe I am a mom, but I get it now. I get all the clichés, for sure. I honestly never smiled more in my life. Nothing is cuter than a baby reacting to your smile and voice. It's a happiness I can't describe. Pure joy. And it gets better and better. While my free time is gone and my life is completely different, it's awesome all the same.
I went back to work at 10 weeks and I am working from home 2 days a week while I care for Roman. It's difficult, to say the least, but it works for now and has turned out to be a great transition period for us. When I am at work, I wish I was with Roman and when I am at home a small part of me wishes I was at my desk. I'm pretty pleased with how it works for us.
Thankfully my mom has made trips up to see us every few weeks allowing Dan and I to go on dinner dates. Some friends even offered to babysit on Valentines day, which was another opportunity for us to get out alone. We have recently been taking Roman with us more to do things, but it always makes us so anxious. I'm sure it will get easier the more we do it. We are currently looking for babysitters in our neighborhood in anticipation of summer weddings and outings.
Overall things couldn't be much better and we are truly smitten with our little guy.
