On a completely different note...last week was the first time I left Caleb for any long period of time - I left at 6pm and got back around 9:45pm and I was about 25 minutes away. Ben gave him his bath, fed him, and then put him to bed. They both did wonderfully!! I've told Ben several times lately that I feel like a real person again. Between the last month or two of pregnancy and the first month or two of Caleb's life, for a while I had not felt like a functioning person of society...not able to do normal things for myself or participate in normal events. But now I have no restrictions...I can lift things, exercise, go to an event outside the home, and grocery shop. You really miss these daily things when you can't do them anymore. Yesterday I realized I was still bending over sideways as if I still had a big belly in the way. I made my self just bend over normal and it was great! I am feeling great and getting into new routines and figuring out this mommy thing little by little. It's a joy!

Such fun! Next month we are reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. But first, I have to finish the last and final book of the Hungar Games Trilogy...I'm loving it!
