Two days in a row!!!

I don't want anyone to be spoiled, but yes, I've now posted two days in a row. It's amazing isn't it. I also regret to inform everyone that I need to turn on the word verification, although, it's probably good punishment to get those dummy posts.

Doctor's visit went as expected. I expected her to tell me not to worry about anything and give it time. I think that's the doctor's first recommendation for everything, kinda like the help desk guy telling you to reboot, no matter what the problem is. So, that's what I'll do. Especially since Googling didn't bring any usable results anyway. Today's been good so far no puking; all food has stayed inside.

Since I have nothing substantive to say, I will let Joe do the talking for me. Here are some random shots.

Joe was the Incred1ble Hulk for Halloween. It was a pretty cute costume.

This is a natural mohawk. He takes a nap right after bath time and this was the sight after his bath a couple weeks ago.

Yes, he bathes in the kitchen sink. every. single. day. My husband doesn't mind it because it means that I do the dishes and wash the sink everyday he's home with me.

And this is a typical snorty face. It's really cute, he breathes in and out through his nose while making that face. It's a face only a momma could love.

Remember Me :)

I am embarrassed of myself. I can't believe it's been five months since my last post. I don't blame any of you who've jumped ship, it's worse than the T1tan1c.

As for what's been going on...everything and nothing. Joe continues to amaze me, every. single. day! He's quite mobile now and has no fear of anything. He's a crawling machine and pulls himself up everywhere he can. He has three teeth (2 bottom and 1 top one), I think that fourth one will be coming in anytime now. Oh yeah, he's nine months old as of tomorrow. Time really has flown. He looks like both me and the husband, really a good mix. He's full of smiles and says the word "uh oh" a lot. He actually knows what it means and when to use it, and he makes sure to use it deliberately when he drops stuff from his high chair. I'll have more stats for you after his 9-month visit tomorrow.

The only concern I have for my dear boy is that he tends to puke up whole meals. Yes, that's right whole meals. So if you thought baby food was gross going in, just imagine it coming up and out again. I've exercised my G00gle doctorate and haven't found much that applies to him. He wasn't premature and he doesn't have FAS (fetal alcohol syndrome) so Dr. Google is at a loss. I'm thinking (hoping) that he just has a very sensitive gag reflex since most of the puking incidents seem to be while eating regular table food. I'm always very cautious to make sure the bites are manageably (is this even a word?) sized. I'm hoping the doctor will have some ideas. I don't think it's an allergy either because there doesn't seem to be a pattern to his puking. I'm really trying not to stress about it, but sometimes I can't help it.

So, onto me. I am now working full-time. The gloriousness of this is that I only have to be in the office two days a week and work from home the other three (or five, depending on what's going on). If any of you remember, I am still a contractor. They are talking about making me a real live employee at which time I will bump it up to 3-10 hour days in the office with the remaining time being served worked at home. I feel quite fortunate to have this option and I work damn hard to make sure my other full-time, in-the-office colleagues feel like I'm pulling my weight. It's a hard balance to strike. I know I do good work, but I feel like I have to put in 200% because I'm not in the office all week. On the flip-side though I love working, I think I'm one of those people who needs that outside fulfillment. To each their own in this department, it's what makes the world go round. I love the time I spend with Joe too. Being away from him allows me to miss him and I treasure every moment I'm with him.

We had family pics taken yesterday. I was so disappointed with our photographer. The P1cture Pe0ple usually take really good, creative pics. This was so not the case yesterday. Our photographer was so not interested in being there. He was a twenty-something with spikey hair. I understand the feeling of not wanting to work, but come on, at least make the effort and go get a photographer that can make a kid smile and maybe consider another approach when you see that sticking the feather duster in my kid's face didn't work the first fifty times you did it, why would it work the last?!? Anywho...I should stop talking about this now, I need to save up my reserves for tomorrow when I call the store manager.

Here was one of two good family shots. I know it's decent, I just wanted more shots to choose from. Joe didn't smile in any of them.

Just in case you needed translation, Joe says hi.

Probably should go now, blogging and breastfeeding a nine-month old don't mix. I really hope to post again soon.
