back to reality

This week was my first week back at work. I am only doing part time (3 days a week), but it was still super hard to leave Levi at daycare that first day. I didn't cry as much as I thought I would, but there were a few tears involved. Thankfully he has done just fine so far! We are both adjusting to the new schedule, but we'll get a routine down eventually. Being back at work isn't so bad, it's just leaving my peanut that sucks. I have been pumping at work also, and that is going pretty good so far too. I am hoping my supply doesn't go down or anything, but we'll see how it goes.

Levi is growing like a weed! He has been smiling like crazy the past week so that has been a lot of fun! I love seeing him learn new things and change every day.

He is still waking up once at night. Nothing to complain about but I am looking forward to when he sleeps through the night! :) For a little bit he was doing really good, sleeping for 5 hours then waking up to eat and going back to sleep for another 3 hours, but the last few nights it's been taking me longer to get him to bed and then he wakes up after only 3 hours or so, then sleeps another 2. I am trying not to sleep with him in our bed too much, but sometimes it's so nice to just snuggle with him. Like this morning he woke up at 4:30 so I just stuck the pacifier in his mouth and cuddled up with him in our bed and he fell back asleep for another hour. Plus naps have been hit and miss during the day. One day he'll take a good nap morning and afternoon, the next he'll barely nap at all. I know he is still little though, and things will fall into place.
