Updating On the Fly

My New Favorite Picture

As I write this, our little funky monkey is talking up a storm with his father, shouting aaaaggggrrrgggg joyously. Whatever it is he's saying, he's certainly adamant about it!

Our monkey has just burst into this wonderful phase of activity where he's super responsive and vocal and interactive..its incredibly fun! He's now 11 pounds and a whopping 24 inches long! This means he's incredibly tall and lanky...with his deep dark soulful eyes, this boy is destined to break some major hearts along the way.

We are settling in to life a little more, and able to go out and about a lot more now that we're only pumping once or twice a day. He's eating about 1/2 breastmilk, 1/2 formula which is more than we even thought we'd be able to get to, so that's great.

And today, for the very first time ever, I left our LFM with WB and ran to the post office all by myself. What a big girl I am! Actually it was a pretty big milestone and I'm totally drunk on the momentary 1/2 hour's worth of freedom. Maybe we'll eventually be able to work ourselves up to the present goal of a haircut.

And now my sweet boy is calling for me, but hey, at least I got 5 minutes, right?
