So my son has decided to hit teething full force this week. We're talking Baby Orajel, Baby Tylenol, drooling, sucking/chewing on name it, we're dealing with it. Tonight was the worst, but thank goodness for medicine! What a time for him to be in pain; not that there is ever a good time, but this week=back to school. That also means getting up at 5:15. So this is going to be a short post.

School starts Wednesday at 7:15, but we have to be there between 6:30-6:45. Fun times. I am just so thankful I don't have to get Hayden up and out the door by like 6. But I'm desperately hoping we get into a decent routine: naps at a certain time, eating at designated times, etc. I haven't been very good at establishing a schedule. We have one for bedtime, but my days have been so unplanned this summer (and I've been learning a lot about having a newborn) that I haven't been diligent about setting a strict routine. Plus, thus far I've been able to cuddle with him just about every morning and/or take afternoon naps. I'm heartsick. I'm going to miss these special times; I'm so glad I had 3 months of uninterrupted time with my baby, but going back to work makes me want to cry. The upside is that I should be home around 3 each day. But I'll definitely be going to bed earlier, too! That said, good night, all!
