I took Minnow for a walk this morning. She was all snug in a bunting (with little teddy bear ears) and content in her Ergo carrier. The sun felt wonderful on my face and the fresh air smelled fantastic. But I went a bit too far and the wooden park bench at the playground was pretty darn hard and then I had to turn around and walk home. Very slowly.
So the rest of the day will be spent very very quietly - watching the superbowl on low volume, napping, and cuddling with Minnow. And feeding every 1.5-2.5 hours.
And that's why even though I am thinking about work everyday - I'm not anywhere near ready to go back.
Minnow's latest accomplishments: (1) When sound asleep I can set her down and she finishes off her nap without me having to hold her at all. I'm getting longer chunks of two-hands time this way. A few days ago, I'd never have imagined this was possible. (2) She's managed to completely empty a breast a few times. It's thrilling. She's growing up so fast!
