Obviously I haven't taken the time to blog in a month! I really need to get in the habit of doing this! Quite a bit has happened in the last month too. Caleb is now three months old, I feel like I'm actually getting the hang of the whole mommy job, my brother and his family are about to purchase their first home, and I started working out again! Somehow I am getting good at this whole balancing act!
So, my little boy hit the three month mark. Not only is he developing a flirty personality with every lady he comes into contact with, he is sleeping in his crib at night! Seriously, he wakes up maybe once a night now and then goes right back to sleep. As a result, his mother is now starting to function again! For the first time since I got pregnant, I seem to be able to remember things. It's amazing! I developed the whole forgetfulness thing during my pregnancy and it was the most frustrating thing to me.
I'm at work full time now. The first day without Caleb was my personal form of Hell. I was okay as long as no one asked me where the baby was or how I was feeling. I even made it until 1:30 in the afternoon. Darrell and I were standing in the parts department and he asked if I was okay. For the first time in years, I cried in front of him. I promptly clocked myself out, got in the car, and picked Caleb up at daycare! And it got easier after the first day, just like every mother I spoke to had promised. I know I would rather spend my days with Caleb, but I realize that my child will be more social and I will be a more rounded individual. I need adult relationships and Caleb needs to be around kids.
Brian and Tara are a few days away from purchasing their first home. At 22 years old, my brother is accomplishing something that many people dream of the majority of their lives. I'm so very proud of him for working hard to provide a home for his new family. Over the next month or so, we will all be pitching in to help get the place painted and decorated, get everything moved in, and set up. Baby Zoey will have a pink room to enjoy and Brian and Tara will have a lot of room to enjoy! Aunt Wendy gets to baby sit a lot during this process so Caleb and Zoey will get plenty of time together!
Jessica and I went to the gym last week. It's been about a year since I was really able to work out and I can definitely tell I'm sooo out of shape! Even though my body ached, I was totally happy. It's so easy for me to get addicted to working out. For some reason, it is amazing to me to see how far and how hard I can push my body. I was actually a little surprised that I had some stamina! I didn't kill over after ten minutes on the eliptical!
I found out yesterday that my stepbabies, Madison and Bryce, may get to spend a lot of their summer in Chattanooga this year. We don't get to see them much, so it's a very exciting possibility! They haven't been able to meet Caleb yet, so I am counting the days until we all get together. Ryan is terribly excited to have all of his kids at one time. I'm hoping and praying it works out.
I told you I had a lot to catch up on. I'll try to post more often now.
