Back at work

I survived the first week at work without having Ayden in my arms. It was big week at work because i had to get ready for the fourth quarter, and it's not easy when you have to reach out to the agencies and tracking down tapes.  It was also very difficult a week leading up to me going back to work. I tried to explain it to  Ayden that I will not be around him like i used to, mommy has to go back to work and that he will see mommy late in the evening.

Being back at work meaning I need to take time out for pumping, I am very luck to have a lactating room on my floor and that my manager is very supportive of the situation. I try to pump at least 3 times during the day. It's really not easy when i have meetings to attend or when i have to work on getting a log out on time.

Going back to work is also mean to have a place to leave Ayden. Well my original plan for babysitter  was my mother, it was something i have been talking to her about and she seriously gave me the impression that she will be the one watching Ayden while we go to work.  well the plan had been changed and we had to find a babysitter before the week was over. Lucky for us my neighbor is willing to take care of Ayden M-F. it was the toughest decision I had to make, he is only 2 months and he is already spending most his of days at a stranger's house. I am going to miss all of his milestones.

speaking of milestones Ayden just discovers his tiny fingers and the direction of his mouth. his best thing right now is to put his fingers in his mouth, he is trying to touch and grab on things. He looks so cute when he is making the attempt of reaching.

2 months!!!

OMG!!!! I really can't believe that 2 months ago I gave birth to my son Ayden, time has flown by so fast. So fast that I am headed back to work on Monday.

 Ayden M Spencer you are 2 months old and have been doing so much lately. Your cooing is much louder, you giggle a lot and you are seriously laughing out loud. You are a well behave child, you sleep well  through the night (thank you LORD for that), you are not a cry baby. You are very responsive to all voices, your eye coordination is really good and you are very active. When you see your daddy you start to move your hands to get his attention.  You smile a lot and you  let us know when we are not talking to you. you had your 2 months doctor visit and it went well, you started taking the vaccines and we did not get you children tylenol as a result you were very cranky for the rest of the day. You cried nonstop for hours, the spot where you took the shot was a little bit swollen. Now are you doing great and with the help of GOD you have no more symptoms.

Having fun in the crib.
I am a big Yankee fan

You are wearing diaper size 1 and possibly going into #2 anytime, and you weight 12 pounds and counting. You outgrow all of the 0-3 months clothes and now you are wearing 3-6 and some 6-9moths clothes, it all depends on the brands. you still prefer the bottle over mommy's boobs, it's okay because for now you are only getting the breast milk. You are a big fan of bath time, you love the water.
hurry mom I don't have all day
you love to kick and throwing your arms in the air

Mom and daddy love you very much and we thank God everyday for this blessing.

Picture time!

My handsome little man loves taking pictures, well sometimes. I try to take as many pics as I can before I head back to work in two weeks. I'm really not looking forward to that because now I'm only going to have the weekends to spend with him. Ayden has been a very good boy lately and now he starts cooing, and responding to voices. These are some great milestones that I would not like to miss  as he is getting older but it's unfortunate.  I'm gonna miss his beautiful smile so much.

"what are you doing mom?"

"after this picture no more, i just want to play mom"
