As D is seeming to become more comfortable with all these new people in his life, he's spending more time in their arms and I may soon attempt a shopping trip or 2 while leaving him with grandparents and aunts, etc, for an hour or 2.
I am in such a wonderful place right now. It's so wonderful and fun being here with my family, and sharing little D with them, and seeing how in love they are with him. Yesterday 4 of D's 5 grandparents were hanging out here with him, and they were all remembering and singing songs from their youth and Captain Kangaroo TV shows, and it was just such a neat moment. And even though those first few nights after arriving I don't think I got more than 4-5 hours of sleep, combined (I refused to actually tally them up), I still felt pretty good, just loving being here.
It's funny, I think those difficult moments and days may serve other purposes as well, as while obviously I still love him to bits even when he's screaming at me all day long, during these times when he's happy and sweet and wonderful I find myself just gazing at him in wonder and being in total awe of him and his beauty.
