Blaine turned 19 months old yesterday! CRAZY! He finally finally FINALLY is saying "mom" more than once every blue moon. He often will yell it from the other end of the house when he wants me. I'm still in the "THAT IS SOOO CUTE" stage and not sick of hearing him scream it like I'm sure I will be in a few years. ;) Crazy that most kids say mom when they are like 6 months old and here I am writing it in his 19 month post. But that kid is more proficient with tools than any other kid his age, I know it! :)
Last Friday, we visited the lady who will babysit him 3 days a week next school year. It was HARD. REALLY HARD. I am so wishy washy on my decision to go back to work but it is still a "yes" at this time. He will fit in SOOO WELL there. She is amazing at caring for kids, I've known her since I was 10, and she's the number 1 recommended babysitter among my coworkers. When we went over it was 30 degrees out at 9 AM and the kids were already playing outside. If at all possible, they play outside all morning, then go in and have a dance party, eat lunch, then nap. Most are still sleeping when the [all teachers] parents pick them up. Yes, it will be a perfect fit. He ran into her garage, got out all the tractors he could find, and starting digging in the snow. Made me smile. Just like home.
Now I just have to figure out how I WILL adjust, since I'm pretty sure Blaine will be fine. ;)
