Yeah, yeah, I wrote once already today, but I have the opportunity to write right now and I'm going to take it. Eleanor was a real champ and hung out in her swing while I got in some exercise on the treadmill and watched a rerun of Grey's Anatomy.
I spend most of my blogging time sharing pictures of Eleanor and I will now take a minute to answer a few questions that I've been getting (since I don't share all of that stuff on here as often anymore).
1. How's Drew's job going? Is he still working from home?
Drew's job is going great and he is still working form home. He has meetings out of the house at times, but much of his job right now is spent in his home office on the computer & the phone. He's learning a lot, making some progress for his business, building his team and enjoying the new challenges and experiences. He hasn't been out of town since Eleanor was born, but he will be going to Toronto for a few days in the next month or so. He will continue working from home at least until the first of the year and then he may set up an office elsewhere. For now we are just really enjoying the flexibility that his new position and career affords him. Even though he keeps himself on a regular work schedule, we still get to peek in and say hello or sit down to lunch together in the middle of the day and we (Drew, Eleanor & I) all really enjoy that perk.
2. How is birth mom?
I haven't gotten an update in a month or so. Last I heard she was doing well and I pray daily that that continues to be the case.
3. How's Grandpa?
He's pretty good. He still lives alone, has the little dog, Dash, in the house and spends much of his time fussing over him. Kyle & I split the days of the week and take turns checking in on him. I take him shopping at least once a week and keep up with doctor/medication stuff. Kyle takes care of the yard and miscellaneous stuff. It's working for now and so we will continue what we are doing as long as Grandpa is able & so desires.
4. Are you loving your new house & neighborhood?
YES! This house went from a big new house to our home very quickly. We love it here and aren't taking a single moment for granted. The neighborhood is friendly, great for evening walks and it's all around lovely. The introvert in me is having to get used to the fact that everyone is so friendly and wants to stop and chit chat, but that's a good problem to have.
5. Is Eleanor an easy baby?
I'll put it this way... thank you for asking if she's an "easy" baby and not a "good" baby. Asking if someone's baby is "good" is awful, since the opposite of that would be "bad". All babies are good, some are just more difficult to care for than others. But to answer the questions, yes, Eleanor is a very easy baby. She's a baby, so she has her moments and it's still work, but she is really quite an easy baby. She's sleeping great, eats well and all seems to be on the right track.
