This Week

The first half of this week was tough. Monday was Jackson’s first day at day care, which Rob already blogged about. Jackson was happy as could be that day. We checked on him at lunch and he flashed smile after smile. When we picked him up that afternoon, he was all smiles again. But, Tuesday and Wednesday he was asleep or getting close to being asleep when we picked him up. As soon as he got in the car, he was out. He slept until 6:30 or 7:00 when we woke him for dinner. After dinner he went back to bed for the night. It was really tough for him to be asleep the whole time we were with him. Today was much better. They were feeding him when we arrived, so Rob took over and finished feeding Jackson. We got to sit and talk to the teachers for about half an hour, which made us feel a lot better. They mentioned little things that reassured us they were really spending time with our son. We got to talk about all the other babies in the room, which was fun. One of the teachers also mentioned how the 2 month old smiles when she sings to her. Of course that was really nice to hear. I’m glad they sing to the babies. Jackson slept on the way home, but stayed up from the time we got home until we put him down for bed. He smiled and talked non-stop. It was nice to have my son back. I can’t wait until the weekend! Here are some pictures from this week.

Noelle looks so great! You would never know she just had a baby. :)

I'm glad Jackson is doing so well at day care. And hoping he is awake more in the evenings.

It is tough to leave your child in other people's care - no matter how qualified they are. With Alasdair being only child we did same for interaction - has paid off as he's still best mates with two of his baby nursery pals eleven years on (at different schools now but they're like brothers so it doesn't matter to them). Won't be long before Jackson's on sleepovers/camps etc with his nursery buddies.
