It's so difficult to believe that if I wasn't out for the summer or if I had had Hayden at another point in the school year, I would be going back to work after next week. NO!!! That's way too soon! How can we possibly expect new parents to bond, establish a routine, and be ready to function 100% (and be overly cordial) with a 6-week old at home? Maybe some new mothers can do this, but I know that I would not be able to. There is no way I would be able to deal with my 8th graders and come home and be up all night. I love Hayden, but lack of sleep and gassy tummies and other newborn issues do not always make me a pleasant person to be around (ask my husband). But I did want to publish a few pictures of him at 5 weeks. Hayden's so big. Most of his 0-3 month clothing is too small or almost too small--especially his sleepers. When he stretches out they pull down at the chest--very sexy! Anyway, we're steadily working through his closet!
