Two Month Check-Up

We had our two month check up today. That meant shots. The PA did them really quickly and Henry only cried very briefly, which was a relief. I was nervous about them, but they did such a quick job I didn't really have time to freak out too much. I'm sure this is from experience.

I have to say I love our pediatrician. He is so calming, and he makes me feel so good about myself and how I am doing as a mom. He can see how happy both Henry and I are, and he tells me that our happiness is a self-fulfilling prophecy and that Henry will just be happier and happier and cuter and sweeter because that's how he is now and that's how I expect him to be. Henry is about average in height and a little above average in weight. He's healthy and growing as expected and doing really well.

I've been going to my in-town Mom's group every week and I went on a social outing with a social Mom's group yesterday for coffee. I enjoyed that and will be trying to go again. I had T's friend S come over and help us de-clutter, which was great. Our house is looking infinitely better, especially downstairs. She also helped us turn our 3rd fl into the guest bedroom now that Henry took over the previous one. She assembled a bed from 1ke@ for us, which was HUGE.

The other huge thing is that I'm 99% sure I've decided to quit my job. Everything is pointing toward that for me and I think I'm just going to do it. The 1% is really just my fear of doing it. Can I tell my boss over the phone? Everyone has been so encouraging about it that I'm just going to do it because I think it's what will make me happiest in the end. I'm going to double check that I'm not accruing anything or earning anything at work (I don't think I am) and maybe talk to my boss on Friday. Any resigning advice? I want to leave on as positive a note as possible.

And don't forget the cuteness:

Cuteness indeed! So glad to hear that Henry is doing well, and that you are doing well also. Sounds like you've got some great help through friends and your moms group. Good luck with the resignation - it's not easy but it sounds like you know it is the right thing for your family. I have a feeling your boss will understand. You won't be the first mom in the world to decide not to come back to work after a baby comes into your life!

Maybe resigning in person would be best, then you can do it on a positive note and leave the door open for coming back later, if that's something that interests you.

Glad you reached a decision that makes you happy. Have fun being a stay at home mom!

That is some extreme cuteness! Good luck with resigning. I don't really have any advice, other than to just be honest.

I don't have too much in the way of resigning advice other than to just do it. Don't feel badly at all, it's your life. Your boss will get over it.

Super SUPER cute!

Glad everything is going so well! He is very cute.

Resigning. Be honest and non-apologetic. If you liked your job, let the boss know that. Frankly, as hard as it has been to bring a baby into your life, you totally deserve to do what you want. I am sure work will understand.

So pleased that the check up went well and that you have a good doctor. Also, that you have made the decision about work. I agree with the advice already given. I would do it in person and stress the positives of your decision and what you liked about work.

Meg said...

I am so happy for you that you decided to stay home with him!!! I made the same decision for my girls and I am very happy with it. I would say the advice is really good already...in person and kindly, honestly. I am thrilled that you are enjoying mommyhood so much and Henry is so fortunate to have you and T!!!

Great that Henry is doing so well.

I agree with the PP about resigning in person to keep your doors open. But I am glad that you are feeling at peace with your decision. I'm sure it will be great!

Love the pic of momma with baby. Quit, quit, quit! I cried and worried about quitting with my first daughter and don't regret it for a moment.
