Happy dance

April 16, 2011, by Carolyn

This past week was a big one. I went back to work and Caleb started daycare. Caleb seems to be handling the transition better than me. He was up and rearing to go his first day, 5:30 AM to be exact. I asked Kyle to drop him off for fear I might make a scene in the nursery and completely embarrass our son. They say it gets easier.

Some highlights from his week include lots of cuddle time, bouncy chairs, tummy time, story hour, and art projects. He is certainly impressing them with his ability to pass gas and soil diapers. We couldn’t help but chuckle when we read “blow out” on his daily report. That’s our boy. But what pleases us most? Caleb smiling when we pick him up at the end of the day [Insert: melting heart]. There’s nothing more rewarding.

Our new routine will prove challenging at times, but we’ll appreciate time spent together that much more. And we’ll continue to cherish all the little things, like Caleb’s happy dance. While there’s no denying Caleb is blessed with Kyle’s good looks, it seems he inherited my dance moves. Blessing or curse? You decide. Here’s a glimpse of him in action, as promised. Guaranteed to make you smile.
