Survival Mode

Phew..one week down at work. This balancing act is so difficult! James was gone for the weekend so Anderson and I spent a lot of time together. :) Today we started new childcare arrangements. We liked the daycare he was going to but it was just difficult with labeling bottles, Anderson's schedule, so many babies, etc. One of my former student's parent volunteered to watch Anderson for the next four months. She is so excited to have him and it is one on one for so much less money. We couldn't refuse. He had a great first day and when I got there to pick him up she was on the floor playing with him. He does have a cold and we think he got it from daycare last week. Poor little guy. He had been sleeping from 10:00 to 5:45-6:00 and last night he was up at 2:30, 3:00, 4:00. Ugghhh. at least James was home to help. We are praying for a better night today. It's hard to be really patient with unruly kids when you are lacking sleep. I'm hoping to be able to take off the witches hat soon...
Besides the cold Anderson has been so much fun lately. I'll write a 4 month update soon. It seems like every week he is doing something new. I'm have taken a few pictures over the weekend and am going to try to take more during the week.

Good to hear you found someone to watch Anderson in a one on one situation. That will help ease this transition so much. Can't wait for more picts! :-)

Your new home care situation sounds perfect! I'll bet that Anderson will really thrive in that environment.
