sol17 #28: baby pictures

I've been back at work for 4 months now and this whole working mom thing is getting a bit "easier" to juggle. I knew that some "firsts" would happen while I was at work, but I wasn't prepared for how I would react.

Jim and his mom brought James to a doctor's appointment this morning and they went out to breakfast after. Around 9:30, Jim texts me a picture of James sitting in a restaurant high chair for the first time!

Of course, I smiled from ear-to-ear, but also felt a little sad that I wasn't there to witness it. I know, I'm crazy because it's just sitting in a high chair, and not his first word. But still, I wanted to be there!

Maybe it was a good thing that this "first" was something as little as sitting in a high chair. It's mentally preparing me for other firsts that will happen while I'm at work.

Thank goodness that my husband gets to see it and I get a sweet picture or video. :)


  1. Awww, they were sharing it with you, so sweet! It's hard to not be there, but we are fortunate that we can get those pictures right away now!

  2. Summer's coming! I hope you have plenty of time to spend with your little guy then.

  3. You're not crazy! You're a mom who loves her little boy!

  4. I hope tons of first happen on vacation and during the summer....and from MY point of view...every first YOU WITNESS is also a first....hand in there momma

  5. Missing the firsts are hard, but there are a lot of them. :) There is always a first time for everything, right?
