Baby Blues

I've got the Returning to Work Baby Blues- 2 days until I go back. I'm excited to see all my friends and to use the thinking part of my brain again, but I am going to miss The Potamus so much. I keep telling myself that he is going to be sleeping almost the whole time I am gone so I'm not going to miss out on anything--except the cuddle before bedtime and his goofy sweet smile in the morning when he wakes up. It's just two days a week, I think we will both survive without each other. At least I know he will survive without me, I might be slightly maimed without him (its only a flesh wound...Monty Python anyone?).

It's only a flesh wound
Matt is out of town for this whole week which means I get Clark all to myself for 5 days in a row--I've never really been good at sharing. I would even hoard food when I was little....I WAS AN ONLY CHILD! Who the heck was going to take my food away from me? The poodles?

Proof I do share...sometimes
 The past week we have been taking it easy, I have been trying to soak up as much time with Clark as I can. We have hit all the Goodwills and Salvation Armies within a 20 mile radius looking for items to turn trash into treasure....stay tuned for before and after pictures. Look out, Martha Stewart, you have some new competition! We even managed to make it to an auction one day, but had to leave early because it was getting too hot outside. I strapped him into his little front pack carrier, put my bid number on his back and we were off to buy some antiques. Yes, I used the front pack carrier. The same front pack carrier that I had a melt down in Babies R Us over because I didn't want to put my kid in a backpack. I thought it was inhumane, Matt insisted on registering for it and I cried like a 2 year old. Hormones, yikes.

Hootie has become a staple for Clark, it is so funny how kids (even 12 weeks old) have preferences. He loves Hootie, thank goodness we didn't go with the name Hooter after all. Bonus: Look at his little Elf Ear sticking out--come to find out all Williams Boys have that ear and they all have it on the left side. Weird. They grow into it and it straightens its self out a little later.

 Hope everyone has a good rest of their week and hopefully I have more interesting things to report on in next week's update.
