I have almost made it through my third full week of work since coming back from my maternity leave. It is kinda crappy to have to work, but it is comforting to know that I won't have to work full time forever and people I know and trust are taking care of my baby. Jon is on campus trying to get as many last minute views on his IIC video as possible to try to win the people's choice prize. A new ipad. I really hope he wins because he has been pretty obsessed and will be really disappointed if he spent all this time and effort without any physical reward to show for it. Danny is sleeping in his bassinet right now and making cute little sleeping baby noises. Here are some pictures I took of Danny over conference weekend. He is growing a ton and I'm pretty sure he weighs more than 10 lbs now.
Ok this one isn't from conference, but this was pretty funny. I was doing laundry and Danny was fussing so I was holding him while I was loading the washing machine. I couldn't hold him and put in the soap at the same time so I grabbed a towel from the dryer and put it in the empty laundry basket. I set Danny down on the towel and put the soap in the washing machine and when I turned to pick him back up he was asleep. I guess he was cranky because he was tired and the warm towel from the dryer made a great bed. Who needs a crib when you have a laundry basket?
Danny has started smiling and making little giggle-like cooing noises that are adorable. This was him smiling at my mom.
What a cutie.
Lexi likes her baby cousin. You can see Jon taking his post conference nap in this one too.
Danny has been doing this little pouty lip thing when he gets upset or scared recently, and this was my attempt at taking a photo of it. This was just the other night and the lighting in my house isn't too great and he was flailing in displeasure, so its a bit blurry. I'll see if I can get a better picture of the pouty lip another time.
I'm really grateful for my cute little son and for my wonderful husband and family who have been taking such good care of him when I'm not at home. I'm also glad that I have a job and co-workers that will cover for me when I am "doing my thing" as Dr. Preston called it once when I was pumping. I'm glad that we were able to watch conference and hear the inspired words of our church leaders. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true and I love it.
