Little D seems to be fighting some sort of bug lately. Nothing big, he's just seemed ever so slightly unwell. A touch of a runny nose, and his eyes look pretty tired. We spent the afternoon playing, interspersed with lots and lots of snuggling. I imagine that's partially from not feeling 100%, and trying to make up for not seeing me as much as usual this past week.
Zach and I have a hotel booked in San Francisco for tomorrow night. We'll all drive up tomorrow morning and hang out with Jenny, maybe take D to the aquarium (he'd LOVE it, I bet), then Mom and Philip will come back with D and Zach and I will get a night away, just the 2 of us. I'm sure we'll miss him, but I'm also beyond excited about it. I've never been the type of mom who feels guilty leaving her kid with (able and loving) babysitters or who needs to call obsessively to check up on the baby. I don't know what that says about me as a mother, but I am very much looking forward to a couple days of hanging out sans-kiddo, without having to worry about snacks and naps and keeping him entertained, and being able to sleep in in the morning, etc. Besides, judging from how much he's been loving his time with his Grandma Laurie and Papaw, he might hardly even miss us. ; )
