Temper tantrum?

I haven't posted since April!! That should give you an idea of all that's been going on. Well baby is now 8-months old and I believe he had an actual temper tantrum today. Is it possible for an 8-month old to do that? He was upset today because I wouldn't pick him up. At 22.5 lbs, it's become quite the task to carry this kid. Alas, he continued until he wore himself out. Kids I tell you.

I know you have heard from me in a while, it may be because I am carrying around an 18 lb 5 month old baby who is breaking my arm. He is growing and learning so fast and I can't get enough of him. Before you have kids you have no idea how much you can love this little being!!

The most handsome kid

Isn't it something that before you have kids you never look at other children. But as soon as your kid arrives you (believing your child is the most beautiful ever born) begin to enter him into mini beauty contests which he inevitably wins hands down. You find yourself saying things like my baby is so much more handsome than that kid, or what an ugly baby, my baby is so handsome. Yes I know it's harsh but I can't help it. THIS KID IS JUST TOO DARN CUTE!!!

I can't remember what a complete night of sleep feels like, and I'm getting more accustomed to working with less sleep, but will someone please tell me the days of 8 hours of sleeping are not over. As I type away at this keyboard, baby is fast asleep, and I would like to join him but I still have so much to do. Oh boy, the joys of motherhood. But ladies admit it, we love it.

First laugh

Yes I haven't posted in a while but cut me some slack... I've been busy. But today I will write about one of the smallest but most awesome moments I've discovered since being admitted to this prestigious club called motherhood. Yesterday Adam laughed for the first time! As his father made silly faces to amuse him he cracked a giant smile and did the most infectious giggle; prompting me to interject with my own squeal. It was so cute! Somebody please pass me a tissue, my baby's growing up!!

Before you have kids you likely have never heard of this thing called post partum hair loss. Then one day after you believe you've got this baby thing down you start to notice more hair on the floor every time you brush, or maybe a little thinning at your hair line. What could this be, is it the new product I started using in my hair or the change in the weather? NO!! It's post partum hair loss and it's coming at you with a vengeance. This is nuts! How much stuff do I have to endure post baby. Oh boy! If baby wasn't so cute I would be really upset about this!!

First day with sitter

Left baby today and he survived, as far as I can see. The sitter also survived. Life is good. Hope this works out. How do you working women do this? Answers anyone!?
