This has been the first week of Samuel and I being home alone together. Sammy is now awake more frequently during the day, which is fun, but also more demanding. I’m starting to realize why people say they can’t get anything done with a baby. I’m also realizing how much Charlie helped with Sammy throughout the day. If I needed to get something done and Samuel wasn’t content being laid down, Charlie would hold him or tend to his needs. Now I’m suddenly the only one who is around to soothe him and it’s taking a long time to accomplish anything. We are very thankful for Charlie’s job but we miss Daddy being around during the day.
