Three down, one to go...

...or is it two down, one to go since I cheated this whole dental school thing and skipped out on the first year? Either way, we're down to the homestretch here and it feels rather, nice? Odd? Exciting? Crazy? Sad? Perhaps all of the above.

Twelve months and counting and it's all over. Kind of. Hot dang!

John headed back to school today after a nice, and perfectly timed, three week break. It was heavenly, and I was sad to have this weekend come to an end. No more sleeping in for me. Yes, I just had a baby, but I've still slept in until almost 9:30 every morning since he arrived. Spoiled, I know. Awesome husband. Totally! I completely took advantage of having my husband home for three weeks, because sadly, three weeks had to end, and end it did. Hello 7am! Hello last first day of school, ever!!

John was a trooper and took the little one in the early mornings and let me sleep. You know, since he's your typical man and somehow sleeps right through the middle of the night cry attacks for food. How do men sleep through that? If I slept through that it'd probably be considered child abuse (at four weeks old I don't think you can really institute the whole "cry it out" thing just yet...that just seems cruel). Either way, the last month, because yes, my child will be one month old tomorrow, (weird!), has been the best month ever with John around, and the little one of course. I miss him already.

Poor me, I now have to face reality of being on my own all day long. Wah wah wah!

Good thing the little man was full of smiles for me all morning long. I think that was his way of telling me everything is going to be all right, I can handle being on my own, he'll be good to me. At least that's what I like to tell myself since he was all talkative and smiles this morning as we read stories together, and now, as I type this, he's sleeping away cute as ever. See, everything is going to be all right! Piece of cake! I've got this!

So, here's to riding solo with the little one.
Here's to my husband being a fourth year! Woot woot!
Here's to living it up in Oklahoma for the next twelve months!
And here's to change, because I feel like change is all we're about these days.

Even though my life doesn't totally feel like my life at the moment, I'm pretty sure this is an exciting time around here right about now. And as my girl Avril would say, "everythings changing when I turn around all out of my control I'm a mobile."

Hold on tight, this year is going to FLY by.

He is so cute! I'm pretty sure our babies were best friends in heaven so we need to get them together sooner rather than later. They probably miss each other :)

Joy said...

I agree with Erin. I'm loving these photos. I hope John has a really good year.

LOVE the baby pictures!!! As for the time/year/etc. someone once told me when I was complaining one day (some 40+) years ago--"Enjoy yourself! These are the 'good old days' you're going to remember one day." I have to admit, they were right. Here's to a Beautiful, Happy Family!
