So I decided I should do a post before its been a whole month since the last. This past month has been full of many new and different things.
Gizatu got his first haircut since he's been home with me. He did great. Sat in my lap and let Ms. Kristi cut away. Mommy of course had hair everywhere. Here's some pictures to show how he did.
I have also started back to work. Thankfully I am only working 3 days a week until the end of the year, so G is only in daycare those three days. The week before I went back to work, we went almost everyday to his daycare so that he could meet his teacher and get to know some of the kids. I left him for 3 hours one day. It was hard, I'll admit. I cried as I walked out the door. I didn't know that it would be that hard, but he did really well. Then the next day he spent 8 hours. He didn't want me to leave, but didn't throw a fit or anything. He was excited to see me when I picked him up. I missed him throughout the day, and thought of him often, but really didn't worry about him. My nephew goes to the same daycare so I knew there was someone there G knew well.
I also had a birthday. My first birthday as a mother. My brother got a card for G to give me for my birthday. It was so sweet. It sang to me. Of course my brother says that when they were choosing a card the based it on the cry factor. This one made me tear up. Being a mom is the best thing ever, it is also the hardest thing ever. I adore him.
So the following pictures are just silly. G had put stickers all over my face and then started making funny faces at the camera, so I though I'd share.
G and the animals are doing really well. This picture is the first time my cat, Tallie, has come within 10 feet of G though. He was so excited that she was laying on him. Then he sneezed and she jumped right off. He thought it was hilarious.
