Sean Update

You know, it’s funny…  I kinda have time during the day…  Kinda.  Sean keeps me busy, and we are starting to get into a routine.  We have had some fun adventures visiting my dad, my sister-in-law, John’s mom, and Auntie Marilyn.  Nana Dee came to visit us, as did Carol and Sue.  We really like visitors.  We went to Kohls and bought mommy some new clothes.  I’ve figured out that we have to have a bottle where ever we go.  I never know when he is going to be starving, and normally it is as soon as we leave the house.

On the 20th of April, John and I took Sean up to Danville to have lunch with the cousins and grandma.  We went to one of my favorite places, Red Tractor.  Honestly, this last visit, the food was not that great, but I was glad to go none the less.  The funny thing was that Sean decided that he had to go Number 2.  We could smell him, so John took him in to the bathroom to change him.  He had started to go, with what we call a dirty fart, and John cleaned that up.  All of a sudden, Sean decided that he really had to go…  and went.  With the diaper not wrapped around him, but under him.  John waited for him to finish, and then cleaned him up a second time…  Then Sean went again!  No one at the table could figure out what was taking so long!  Apparently, Sean liked that bathroom!  I think it was really funny that Sean did this with daddy (as I was the first one to be pee’d on), and John took it much better than I would have.  He came out smiling and laughing about his experiences. 

Sean has been gracing us with many smiles, and he laughs out loud.  He plays with his toys, his favorites are two yellow ducks.  One is a rattle and the other has big orange feet.  He talks to them as he sits in his stroller.  He loves his stroller.  He helps me cook dinner in the evening.  I tell him what I’m doing and he talks back.  It’s really cute.

I keep thinking about the fact that I would be going back to work at the end of May, if I hadn’t asked for the unpaid leave of absence.  I just can’t imagine having to leave him.  I don’t know how people do it.  I know that I couldn’t leave him with mom.  Eventually she isn’t going to be able to carry him.  I think about what I would do…  Ask Amy if she has it in her to have 2 the same age?  Ask my neighbour Patty if she would like to help out, and pay her Social Security?  Try to find people to come in on a daily basis, like Andrea’s mom and John’s mom?  Get a nanny?  I really don’t know what I would do if I had to go back to work right now… 

I’ll leave you with a picture of Sean.  I’ve added a bunch to flickr today.  I seem to be missing almost 20 days of his life already.  How does that happen?

Isn’t his smile great?

    Going back at the end of May sounds like an increadibly short maternity leave – I think here in the UK women tend to take a year off. The picture’s very sweet grin
