Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go.

Nash is now 3 months old, I have returned to work, and our household is finally taking on a new rhythm. It's been an interesting adjustment back to the professional world after 12 weeks of being a stay-at-home mom. I am so grateful for my time home with Nash - it was the toughest and the most wonderful 12 weeks of my life. We were blessed that Nathan was able to work from home during those 12 weeks. That was truly God's provision. I'm not sure I could have handled being alone for that long or had the stamina to keep up with a colicky baby. Praise the Lord those issues have passed!

My last post was 7 weeks ago - Nash has changed a lot! Here's what's new:

  • Nash has just started sleeping 10 - 11 hours at night, waking only once to eat quickly and go right back down. It's wonderful to be getting 8 hours of sleep again - not looking forward to teething when that might get disrupted again!
  • Nash weighs 14 pounds, 12 ounces as of last Monday. He's a big boy now!
  • He laughs and smiles and interacts with you now. It melts my heart every time I tickle him and he gets his big toothless grin on his face. Priceless!
  • Nash still isn't interested in toys but he's watching them. I can just see those little wheels turning & thinking, "How can I get these arms to reach those toys?"
  • Nash has been adjusting great to school. His teachers love him and he seems to like them as well. They have webcams so I get to peek in on him throughout the day, which helps me make it through the day! The first day was the hardest, but we're all adjusting and getting our new routine down.
I'm still amazed at how much I love him - I didn't know it was possible! We can't wait for the next new thing he'll do - and at the same time, we miss things he has already stopped doing. That's the life of a parent, I guess!

That's the latest and greatest in the Pyles Household. Good times and lots of love!
