So, I wanted to report on a few things:
- it appears as though my brain is still working and I am still able to interact with adults regarding non-child related matters
- I am having no trouble being away from the babe during working hours (yippee)
- the babe is apparently enjoying hanging with her Grandparents. She did a few trips to the park, a two hour nap, and some gardening in the back yard. She asked for me a few times, but nothing serious (I would have actually been offended if she hadn't asked for me). Not bad for her first full day away from Mom and Dad.
- to follow up on the babe's speaking progress, she can now say her name (although she misses the "r"). If you ask her what her name is, she will announce it to you proudly. It's very cute.
