Seven Weeks and Back to Work

Friday was my first day back at work. Since Fridays are planning days at my school, I was able to take Trip with me. He usually sleeps most of the morning, so I figured he would fall asleep in the car and sleep through our staff meeting. Of course that did not happen, but fortunately he wasn't fussy. He was wide awake when we got to school and everyone was so thrilled that he was looking at them when they came to admire him.

Yesterday he was sitting next to me on the couch while I was trying to figure out our new math curriculum and planning lessons for the week. He fell asleep and slowly started sliding down in his seat. I left the room for a little while to fold some laundry and Kirk called me back to see this:

Apparently he was comfortable, though because he continued sleeping like that.

The best thing that happened yesterday was that Trip smiled at me for the first time. He has been grinning for a while, but this was a real smile that took over his whole face. He did it twice in a row, and then I haven't been able to get him to do it again. At least we know that more smiles will be coming soon! I look forward to capturing some on film (or rather on memory card) to share with you!

Here he is today at seven weeks old, hanging out and watching football.
