From Bean to Sprout

a first time mom's forray into parenthood

Reunited and it feels so good… July 26, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — frombeantosprout @ 6:06 pm

Henry and his buddy Luis were reunited today after not seeing each other for almost a month. That’s eons in baby time. They caught up while Sandra and I sweated it out at Fit Mom. Man that class is tough. But a good tough. Today was a lot of push ups and lunges up a hill while pushing a stroller. When we got home, both Henry and I passed out of sheer exhaustion and slept for 2 hours.

let us mind meld and catch up

 

now that we're caught up, we can ham it up for the camera.

 

In other news, Henry drank some expressed breastmilk out of a shot glass today. This is a BIG DEAL for me. As he was drinking it my mind was flashing to images of me getting a pedicure AND massage, or going out for dinner and a movie sans baby. So much potential unlocked. We’re going to try again tomorrow to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. We have Pat (Chris’ mom) to thank for this. Yesterday she was holding Henry and her glass of water and Henry reached for it so she placed it at his mouth and he gulped some down and I thought “well if he’ll do that for water, I wonder if he’d take milk that way also”. So thanks Pat!

    Glad your little one was happy to catch up with his buddy and that both you and Sandra enjoyed some mommy time while working out.

    As for the milk situation; well… good for you! Hopefully, it’ll workout in the end. :o)
    Keep us posted. :o)

    Why can’t you give it to him in a bottle? I’m genuinely curious in case you read this as having a snarky tone 🙂
