Midnight Ramblings

I love Jack a lot. I look into his Blue Steel eyes and see someone that might just understand me. That makes sense, afterall, I spent much of my life looking for Nicole, who understands me in a way that I never thought another could. He is the direct product of that union and though I deign not to suggest I can influence his personality, I have irrational hopes that he will one day come to understand his father in a way the rest of the world save his mother never could.

my little man

this week i am starting to prepare to go back to work in 3 or at best 4 weeks. it's not the work i dread, but just as i have figured out nursing, i have to figure out a way to keep it up while jack and i are apart.

my milk must be doing something right, even if my soothing techniques are less than perfect. jack weighed in at 8 pounds 10 ounces. not bad for 4.5 weeks. he also grew 2" in length.

this time with jack has been very special to me. i never knew that it could be so much work but also be so rewarding. he has started to respond to my voice and my tickles. kissing him is so sweet.

3 weeks old

i wonder what he is thinking. jack is awake a lot more often. yesterday he was really awake for 4 hours. some of those hours were crying but some were pleasant.

many people ask me how things are going. my usual response is that there are good days and there are bad ones. hopefully there are more good ones. today was one of our good days. we made a visit to zingerman's which included a stop at human resources to visit the ladies and then lunch at the loft. it was great to see everyone, but i am not ready to go back, yet. i also got a package in the mail from zingerman's mail order. i must work in the best place ever. great day!
