Harbor and I have just been hanging out- trying to stay indoors out of that cold wind! In the last two weeks he has started giving me a few smiles and a few coo's! It has been very exciting for his daddy, Bichon, I. He is quite a little ham for the camera most days.
I spoke with my principal last week and we decided that I would return to work on February 25th. In total, that gives me 17 weeks of maternity leave. I feel so blessed. I really feel like as a teacher I get the best of both worlds- working and being home as a mom. The middle school where I teach gets out at 2:50, and I am usually home by 3:25. Since Harbor's Gigi is watching him at our house, he will never have to "get out", which means when I am home, he is home! : ) Harbor will be almost four months old when I go back to work and I really feel relaxed and happy with that. I have a week off in March for Spring Break and then will only work April and May before I get my summer off. Woo Hoo!! Two months back at work and off all summer? Boy, howdy! Aquatic Park, here Harbor and I come!! (I know I shouldn't be thinking of summer when we technically have had zero snowfall here in good ol' Arkansas, but a girl can dream...)
Enjoy the latest and greatest of pictures from the McCash house!
