I bought Oliver this cute taggie blanket off of www.etsy.com, even though he's not quite old enough to fully appreciate it. (Little ones like feeling all the different textures of the blankets and the ribbon 'tags' along the edges.)
But today he was playing with it and just as happy as could be! Here's a video...
Oh, and he rolled over in his crib again last night. Of course he only does it when I'm not around to see! The stinker.

Oliver is a tummy-sleeper, and last night around 2am he was fussing in his crib, which is normal as he usually eats at this time. Well, I went in to get him, and instead of lying on his tummy like I had put him down, he was on his back!!
I'll be giving him lots of tummy time this week and watching carefully to see if this is for real!

My office is an hour away from home - that means I would not see Oli for 11 hours of the day. And with Ian being out of town a lot, Oliver would get home in the evening just in time to get ready for bed. I was NOT going to be okay with that. I will miss my coworkers, they are great people, but the drive is just not worth it.
I am looking for a new job, but I'm not in a huge rush yet. I would love to work part-time and close to home, but a full-time job will be okay as long as I'm not too far! I would also like to eventually return to Drake to finish my Master's, but I'm not sure when.
For now, I'm going to enjoy all this time I get with my little one. I have found that in the last year, I have gotten more 'granola' than I ever thought I would. I'm a breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, co-sleeping mama and I'm okay with that! In fact I'm proud of it! I think that even just another month of being at home with Oli will be so good for both of us.
So...if you hear of any great jobs that deal with kiddos, let me know! :)
