Little man was sitting playing on his activity mat and I leaned down and put my arms out to pick him up so we could leave for work/daycare. Guess what he did?? He raised his arms to me! He's never done that before. He'd raise them a little once my hands were under his armpits, but never before I actually touched him. I love it.
In other, totally unrelated news...I'm starting 4 day work weeks next week. The extra 4 days a month pretty much pays for daycare, which is great. I'm looking forward to having a little more money. It's actually been easier living on a smaller income than I/we anticipated, but a cushion would be nice. Especially since I'm having a freaking root canal in a few weeks, and who knows what after that.
