First Week

This was Nathanael’s first week at daycare.  I feel really good about our daycare and I know he is getting wonderful care.  It was hard though.  He doesn’t nap easily and when he’s stimulated, well, you can pretty much forget it.  So, when I would get to see him in the evenings he was pretty much wacked out of his head.  I was starting to get a bit freaked by the end of the week but Friday I was able to pick him up earlier, have him nap at home and he seemed happy Nathanael last night.  It’s been a big transition.  I drop him off in the morning and Joe picks him up.  By the time I get home, it’s usually only 2 hours until he sleeps so it’s dinner, bath, a short walk, a few minutes of play and night time.  I do miss him and I can tell it’s hard on him but it will be fine when we’ve all adjusted to our new normal.

He’s growing a great deal and almost looking like a toddler.  He’s 11 months.  Today we are taking him to his first hair cut (with us).  I’ll post photos.

He’s just such a happy, cheerful kid and today when he’s been with us, we can just see that wonderful Nathanael shine through.
