After a great week in Alaska with my mom, we’re home again in the PNW. We were greeted with pouring rain and it has been the perfect weather to stay inside, wear warm clothes and snuggle. That’s what we’ve been doing, as well as watching football. Our Ducks did not disappoint on Saturday and the Seahawks didn’t either. All of us are stuffy, not sure if it’s a cold or allergies but the results are the same. We don’t want to do anything!
As much as I enjoy traveling, there’s nothing like coming home. Just being with The Man and Munchkin are enough for me. They are my home. They had a great week. Munchkin is such a daddy’s girl. She was excited to see me and it wasn’t until Sunday that she really started showing how much she missed me. She was fine all week and it didn’t seem like she missed me at all. It hurt a little but I know that she did miss me. She’s been snuggling with me.
Munchkin did just fine all week without nursing. We thought that maybe we would just consider her weaned. Until Saturday afternoon when she was cranky and pulling at my shirt. It’s a clear sign she wanted Mama Milk. I wasn’t ready to wean (though is she was, I would have done it) so I was happy to be nursing again. Selfishly, it also helped take away some of the pain. Not nursing for a week cold turkey is not fun. It’s nice to not have a hurting breast anymore!
I know The Man missed me too. He wrote me a sweet letter letting me know how much he appreciates all I do. He mentioned how I should get more sleep. I think I’ll be taking him up on that offer! I know that even before he had the baby for week he appreciated what I do at home. It’s nice to hear it. I’m looking forward to a week of getting settled into our routine again. It’s nice to know I have two and half months before I’m leaving again. I hear the Bahamas are nice in December….
