Heading back :(

It's been awhile since I've posted but things have been a little busy obviously :) Monkey is growing quickly and smiles all the time. I'm still pumping since he still won't nurse and the formula doesn't set well with him. So basically my life revolves around the pump and then playing and feeding Monkey. He does try to nurse bless his heart but he just can't quite get the hang of it. Pumping has it's ups and downs. I have good days and bad days with my supply. Luckily he can tolerate a bottle or two of formula a day which helps me feel less stressed about my supply.

Motherhood is...interesting for lack of a better word. I love Monkey and taking care of him. What I don't love is having to go back to work before he's old enough to sleep through the night. I worry about balancing work and being a mom. Not sure how all that is going to work but I'll let you know when I start in a few days. I'm incredibly sad about it because I would rather be with Monkey all day. I'm afraid I'll be thinking about him too much to focus on teaching. Luckily, he's going to be with my mom and I'll be right up the street. Thank goodness Heavenly Father blessed me with a job closer to home. If I were teaching at my other school, I really think it would have been even harder. Here I can run home at lunch to see him if I want to. I'll post again when I start back to school and hopefully the transition isn't as hard as I'm expecting.

Monkey is such a sweet boy. He has his moments like tonight when he screamed for an hour because he didn't want to sleep (as he's yawning and struggling to keep his eyes open) but for the most part he's happy and smiling. He's starting to laugh now. Monkey has incredible strength! I'm shocked at how well he holds his head up and the fact that he pushes off with his feet and scoots when we put him on his tummy. He tries to roll over as well. He loves being with Grandma and Grandpa when we need to run somewhere. He also loves being held and demands attention. I think we're in trouble :) The other day I turned away to get something and he yelled at me :) At night when he wakes up to eat he will squeal and cry until Dad wakes up as well. Meaning neither of us sleep. He wants all eyes on him. Well, there will be another update and more pictures as soon as Blogger will let me upload more!
