I'm flying solo this week because Music Man is working in Atlanta for the week. He was gone this same time last year and I have to say it is a monumental difference having a 20 month old as opposed to a 8 month old. And Music man is only gone for 1 week as opposed to 7 weeks, also making a huge difference. But now that Little Man sleeps fairly well, naps fairly well and can communicate his needs I feel like things are so much easier.
(I just love this family photo and it needed to be posted, dog butts and all)
I also have baby fever again. It's pretty common for siblings to be 2 1/2 years apart because something magical happens around 20 months. The sleep I mentioned above is huge but also when you aren't trying a million different things to make someone else happy you have more time to focus on yourself. And all those things make me think "Hmmm, I could totally do this again." As though those last 20 months were sooooooo easy. Ha! maybe I'm not exactly there yet but the idea of giving Little Man a sibling isn't so daunting.
(Is he not the cutest thing you've ever seen?)
Ok, time to relax, watch Biggest Loser and read more Murakami.
