Still here

I have not dropped off the face of the earth. Really. Just really lazy with posting.

This post is going to be a little random, as my attention span is very short right now.

Nursing is going well. I really like the time with the little dude, and he loves the time with me. And it is damn convenient. Pumping is not a huge deal, especially with a good pump. Though finding the time recently has been a challenge. Hubby has been watching the baby when I pump, which works our well when he is available. I have been trying to pump soon after I get up in the morning, when Little Dude is full and happy and Hubby is available and milk production is high.

I love co-sleeping! Absolutely love it! Everyone gets sleep, and I get to cuddle with the baby. I suspect that I will be one of those parents that co-sleeps as long as possible.

I will be going back to work by the end of the month. I am going back flex, working two days a week. We are keeping the subsidized COBRA for insurance. (Now that they approved it. Idiots. Insurance companies suck.) My employee health visit is Wednesday, and I will likely start about a week after that.

We found a great childcare provider for the Little Dude while I am at work. Both Hubby and I like the place, and the people that run it. One thing I think is great is that Hubby will drop off the Little Dude. I think that is going to be a lot easier on me. Now we need a weekend/evening sitter so we can go on dates. I am working on that. Really.

I will leave you with some pics taken on Easter, With everyone in their Easter finery.

It's shocking to see how much bigger he is than my baby! I know gender makes a difference, but wow!

Who subsidizes the COBRA, and how did you.find put you qualified?

I hope your return to work goes well! It must be such a relief to have made a decision, not to mention finding great childcare. Hubby and I had the same feelings - SIL wanted to keep him while we worked but I wanted to reserve her for the odd night out. No reason to burn out your best sitter!
