Six Weeks Already!

Tomorrow will be six weeks already.  How does the time keep creeping up on me like this?  Fountain of youth is not what is needed, no, instead we need to figure out just how to slow time or stop it all together.  I just can't believe six weeks have already come and gone. 

Something happened just the other day, something that was so unexpected.  I didn't think I could love him much more than I already did.  But I realized that the love is growing even greater.  If emotions could be seen coming out of a person, like water out of a faucet, well I would overflow the sink!  I have become much more comfortable with Nolan in the past week.  I don't feel like he is breakable anymore, as he is becoming a little chunker.  And I have gotten used to this lack of sleep thing! 

As of tomorrow, I have six weeks remaining until I have to return to work.  I am totally struggling with this, I am not going to lie.  I don't want to leave my child for 10 hours every day to return to a place that only brings me a paycheck.  It isn't going to be fun to drop my baby off with people who are not my family and have them watch him grow.  I have tried to crunch the numbers several times, but each time we end up just too short without my pay.  Sadly, I have to return.  Hopefully we can find a way soon, but I don't think it is going to be any time in the near future.  Fair, no!  Reality, for now. 

Here are some photos from the past week:

Sleepy baby!

The boys having tongue wars.

"Say what?!"

So precious.  I love those lips!

He loves getting a bath, absolutely loves it.

Poor baby had a blocked tear duct.  Our first sick visit to the doctor's office was on
Saturday, September 2.
