Liam is a such a well behaved boy. He is getting to be more predictable and that is a great trait for a baby. He'll wake around 7:30 every morning then be down for his morning nap by 9. While he sleeps, I am able to work in my home office (in bed with my laptop). And then when he wakes, he only needs a little cuddle and then he is content to sit (yes he sits so well now) in his crib and play with his toys (and talks to them too). I am able to get all my work done each morning. What a great age this 6 months is, eh?
Yes, this is a great age. So great that I feel like I am missing out on a bunch when I drop him off at the sitter and go to the corporate office for 5 hours. I found this comic awhile back and I didn't find it the least bit comical. I am so scared this is going to happen to me. And I sometimes wonder if it already has. I did miss his first giggle (see my VERY first post), BUT Ian called me at work the moment it happened so I could hear his second giggle. So it was okay.
Since Ian picks Liam up from the sitter, he is the one that gets the "report" if there is any. And I am always running late for work when I drop him off that I don't have time to get details of the previous day's events. So, I am sometimes wondering if I missed a FIRST. Maybe Shari is gracious like my friend, Katie, and doesn't say anything to wait and see if I say I noticed the NEW thing. Or maybe she assumes whatever new thing to her has already happened at home previously... I guess it doesn't matter. We get to enjoy whatever new thing when we are home with him, so that is okay too. I just don't want to miss anything that my little boy does... there is nothing wrong with that!
