Technically I’m home solo all week, but really I’m not transitioned back to real life yet. Last week my friend Kathy came over four out of five weekday afternoons. And next week Eric is off work. So while the day to day is technically real life, I don’t have to do it for the long haul yet.
Still, it’s busy enough to make blogging difficult. I’ve been putting together a bunch of back posts for a series for New Moms, which can be done one-handed while I hold Tesser. But actual posting, full-on two-handed posting, that is harder to come by.
One thing I can do one-handed is take pics with my camera. So while I may not be able to type out a whole story, I can give you some lovely little baby pics. (And toddler pics.)
Our little Tesser is still quite little. You can tell as she still sports some prime Baby Old Man Face.
We had gorgeous weather last week. Grammer wanted to go outside and “play wi friends.” He gave a car in exchange for this pom pom. (The friends were all girls.)
Can you tell he’s gotten better at saying cheese for the camera?
This is where Tess spends most of her day:
She is usually awake, though. I live much of the day with my feet propped up on the table like so. Gives my arms a break for more serious fussiness.
Of course, when Kathy was here, Tessa was in the lap of luxury.
I kinda sorta forgot about that whole tummy time thing until Tessa’s 4-week appointment. So we’ve just pulled out Graham’s old playmat. The Bug had to get in on the action.
It’s unfortunate that our transition with the new baby overlaps with Graham’s tendency to skip his nap. In an effort to get him to sleep, I brought him into bed with Tessa and I. It was supremely adorable.
The Bug enjoys snack time at playgroup. It’s like watching a baby business lunch.
Today the weather was cold again. Before we headed out for playgroup, Tessa got all bundled up.
That’s all I’ve got for now, but I’ll be sure to keep snapping away when I can.
