Everyday Beth and I are amazed at how fast the time goes! This is the closest thing we've had to a 'stay-cation' since I spent an entire three-day weekend renovating our bathroom. (A normal person could have had it done in a day and a half, but I'm not all that normal.)
Today Adele is one week old and had her first visit to the pediatrician. She's gained almost a full pound since birth (from 5 lbs. 15 oz to 6 lbs. 13 oz.) and is blowing out diapers left and right. (Already Beth and I have each had to change after a leaky diaper). She's also found that when she has her diaper off is when she really likes make a mess. We only had to change the sheets on our bed once before we learned to always use a changing pad! (Also, our quilt is at the dry cleaners...)
I've been able to sneak a bike ride in here and there, including a fast 16 miles last night. It doesn't seem all that fair of me to be riding much more than that with Beth "stuck" at home with the baby. Although, I'm not all that sure Beth feels that way. She's already floated options for not going back to work, but unfortunately that would be a little too big a lifestyle change for us at this point.
Speaking of going back to work, I'm thinking next Monday is going to be the Monday-est Monday I'll ever have. I'm sure I'll have plenty to do at work, so that will at least help keep me focused, but you can bet that my mind will often wander back to my two girls here at home.
