Last week was amazing. Three snow days, and one early dismissal day. I think this week we are going to actually work the full five days, start to finish, which will be my first time doing so since September, thanks to my good friend Mother Nature. It's weird because when I would have snow days while pregnant, I would lament the end of snow days meaning sleeping, watching TV, and eating candy all day. I thought nothing could come close to the joy of hearing the alarm, checking my phone, and turning it off and going back to sleep.

That feeling didn't even come close to the overwhelming happiness I feel now. Thinking I have to say goodbye to Dalton (it's still traumatic each morning) and then finding out I get to spend the whole day with him...incredible.
My friend just reminded me that while he was in utero, I had concerns about us bonding. Because what did I know? At that point I had never even met the guy, who knew if we would like each other?
I think I've pretty well documented that was an unnecessary concern on my part. I'm going out on a limb and saying it's ok on his end too. Here's what he does while Eric holds him.

He tracks me and then gets mad when I leave the room. I can't even pretend to be upset. I love it. I think about how one day he'll be a teenager and won't even want to be seen with me and want to cry.
This past weekend we took him to the aquarium with our friends and their son.
He looks around in wonderment just going from the living room to the kitchen, so all week I was ridiculously excited to see his little face react to all the new things.
It was pretty awesome, although at one point we were trying to get his attention to show him a really cool fish. He was staring intently at something, and we couldn't figure out what. Finally we realized it was the bright red life preserver hanging above the tank. Babies be crazy, amiright?
