I blinked and it’s fall. Never in my life has six months gone by so fast as these first six months of James’s life! I remember when Alex was an infant and the days seemed so long. Now life just flies by. By this time with Alex, I was already running a tight ship, scheduling her (imagine, a baby!) and becoming upset when she didn’t stick to it (again, A BABY!). Oh my, have things changed this time around. James has had some health issues, and has to eat and sleep more frequently than the average babe, in other words, see ya later schedule! It has been a blessing to just let things ‘be’ and enjoy both my kids this time around. But time is going so fast, at the end of the day I think, what did I even do today? Then six months goes by and I have the same feeling!
Between working and the babies, one thing that loses priority is time with friends. In the past couple of weeks I’ve started to go out, spend time with friends, and it has been GLO-RI-OUS. I’ve had dinner with colleagues, margaritas with new friends, and a New England-y fall weekend with college roommates. So my resolution this fall is to always make time to have a drink or a call with a friend, no matter how busy life gets. I forgot how much I needed it!
