More About Milo
My husband is really hands on. His favorite time with Milo is bath time.
Our five dogs have accepted Milo as part of the pack. They LOVE the baby. It is so cute to see them watch over him. I wasn't sure how that was going to play out but we lucked out.
We keep a routine: Walk in the park in the morning, nap for Mom and Baby in the afternoon, bath at 6 p.m., and bed at 7.
In Lieu of Lullabies
Milo's favorite music is the Beatles and the Jewel Lullaby album.
Watching Milo Grow
Every moment is such a blessing.
I haven't even thought about going back to work yet, but when it is the right time, I'll figure it out. Luckily, I have wonderful parents who are crazy about their grandson. They'll help me.
Getting Back in Shape Game plan
Yoga. Yoga. Yoga. Pilates. And walking. I have it all planned. I just need to start. Someday.
Paying it Forward Wisdom-wise
If you have a Type A personality, learn to let go. Be present and in the moment. And when you're so sleep deprived that you can't see straight, remember that this time is so fleeting and you'll miss it someday.
