What does a two month old do? Our little one usually naps twice a day around 9am and 2pm. He still hates bagpipes and recently hates the sound of the phone. We are trying to find a way to make the sound of the phone less irritating to him. We have been taking the little one to church where our family friend is assigned. He doesn't mind if the baby cries since, "Jesus cried too." It takes a lot of the pressure off and makes the experience far more enjoyable for all of us. The little one usually naps through the beginning of Mass until the homily. (Our friend speaks very loudly but, the little guy never cries.) He enjoys the music.
Can a two month old be teething? According to the pediatrician, the little one is officially teething. He is a drool machine. The pediatrician indicated the teething could go on for MONTHS! (Mommy is not ready for the little one to have teeth yet.) He is still exclusively breast fed. I never thought in a million years I'd make it this long. Hopefully, I can make it to six months. I've been doing a lot of reading about baby led weaning so, we'll see what happens.
Are you going back to work? My maternity leave officially ended on the 17th. It is hard to believe 8 weeks have gone by already. I'm not sure what the next steps will be. It is extremely hard to imagine going back to work full time. I am looking into various "work at home" options and part time options. I know as a teacher I can always tutor but, I'd like to try to find something that encourages more creativity and/or craftiness. I am inspired by all of these moms that have businesses like making cloth diapers or profitable etsy shops. I've sent resumes to several tutoring agencies and various part time job openings but haven't heard anything back yet. I'd ultimately love to go back to school for my PhD or EdD. I love being a student and teaching on a college campus would be the best possible scenario as the little one grow up.
