Dominic is officially 3 weeks old now! Well before Dominic was born, I planned on checking out a laptop from work and working part time from home during December. Today just made for a good day to get out of the house and take Dominic on his first real trip out into the world. (His other 3 trips have all been appointment related, so they don't count!)
In a way, it was a lot of fun to take Dominic out for a couple hours. We used our battleship(stroller) for the first time, and Dominic got to meet a lot of my coworkers. It was heart warming to see how excited many of them were to see Dominic. Several people also went in on a giftcard which was really nice. I'm sure Andy and I will be making some store runs to get Dominic some fun things as he continues to grow. Just earlier tonight, I noticed that one of my favorite newborn onesie outfits for him was getting a little tight.
On the work side of things, it was fun to see so many coworkers that I hadn't seen for the past 3 weeks. However, it also meant that I was beginning the transition back into the work realm. The past three weeks have been amazing, trying, draining, and extremely rewarding. Dominic has grown so much in such a short span of time that I wish I could stay home from work even longer to see him grow and develop. Luckily, I'll still be home until Jan 2nd, but that date suddenly looks to much closer than it did before today. I'm really hoping to do as much as I can and make more trips out of the house with Dominic before I have to go back to the office in less than a month.
