It began with a trip to the zoo, then to New York, then a birthday celebration, then a hurricane, and finally a Halloween celebration. October was an extremely busy month for us!
I’ve loved every minute of our busy month–it helped me get back to normal when I transitioned back to work part-time in late September. We’re back up and running at a busy pace that feels right for our family. Now we can’t maintain this level of activity forever, but it’s a good way to enjoy the holiday season considering our summer was a bit homebound with the newborn baby.
November will be another month of transition. I am officially back to work full time next week, though I have planned to take off Fridays through 2012. Carson will go to daycare three days a week (until now he’s only be going two days), and I will have to adjust to life without extra days at home with just my little baby. I look forward to my Fridays with both kids and in some ways feel relieved to be at work full time so I can get back into the groove of my normal life. However, I will savor this final Thursday off . . . it’s hard to believe my little guy is sixteen weeks today.
