Four Months

On Thanksgiving Day my little man will be four months old.  Where the heck did the last months go?  Thanksgiving Day is also a special day, because he will finally meet his Grandpa Rodney for the very first time.  What a perfect day for them to meet.  I seriously can't wait!

Unfortunately, this month Henry got his first spout of conjunctivitis.  I felt so bad for him and tried everything I could to get rid of it without using antibiotics on my little, bitty baby, but after a couple days I knew we had to see the doctor.  I couldn't shake the feeling that it was my fault for putting him in daycare.  It was devastating.  He is 100% better now!

This month I hosted a parenting class with my mommy group.  I met this amazing author, Kathy Walsh, who resides in Santa Fe.  The whole idea is "Mindful Parenting" and how to establish this mindset in your own home.  Henry missed last month's class due to the evil stink eye, but he'll go to the next one.  It's really wonderful hearing other mom's parenting ideas whether you agree or not.  I'm hosting a class each month or so and can't wait for December's.

Month four is my favorite so far.  I have a feeling I might say that every month, but I feel like my little baby is now a little human.  He is intrigued by so many things it is amazing to watch him grow and explore.  I am amazed with how different my life and day to day tasks are.  Andy and I make such a great team.  Sure it is different, and sometimes I miss the old days, but I wouldn't trade this life for anything.  I don't think I have ever been happier.  Henry is truly a little bundle of  joy.
