Adventures in Babies

jeannegrrl and Jacob came to visit today. I can't believe how much Jacob has grown...not so much physically (he seems to have finally plateaued a bit), but developmentally. Had it really been THAT long since I'd seen him?? Apparently.

Jacob ate TEN (count 'em) ounces of food, plus some knishes, plus some cheerios. I think the little vacuum cleaner would have kept eating if there'd been more food around. :)Jeanne and I also had time to have a nice long chat for the first time in a long time. I always love chatting with Jeanne, because she's got a great perspective on things. Also, sometimes it's nice to have someone other than your husband to talk with. Not that I don't love talking to and with Seth. I do. But sometimes a girl needs a little girl-talk. I don't know how to explain it.

Although I was sorry not to see Jeanne and Jacob last week, it turns out that it was a good thing I didn't. I was really out of it last week, so Jeanne and I decided that today would be a better day, after a couple attempts at a visit last week. I was feeling sort of rotten about it because even though I was out of it, it would have cheered me to see them. However, I realize now that seeing Jacob this week was much better because last week I'd have had NO chance of lifting him up even the tiny bit that I did. I still didn't strain too much, but I wouldn't have been able to even get him onto my lap last week.

One thing I keep forgetting is that I don't have very much stamina. Though I didn't do much while Jeanne and Jacob were here, I was completely tuckered out when they left. As soon as they left I conked out. (Still VERY glad they came). I'm a little concerned about how I'm going to handle a full day's work when I get back to the office (next week). We'll see how it goes!
