Ru returned to work today after a nice holiday together. It is very strange to be back here in the GTA, with only Signal and I in our little apartment. After a holiday at my parents' large home, filled with friends and family and outings, our little existence here seems rather drab.
Signal was not impressed when Ru left for work and he made his feelings known. But we got down to playing and naps and snacking and he seems to have taken it in stride. After his shower he was waving and saying "bye bye," so I asked him if he was leaving. He looked at me and said "Mama bye bye." Our kid is too clever.
Now that he has been walking for nearly a month, he is also a very fast little dude. Before we left he would pretty much stay put and play in the living room. These days he is forever exploring, going from his phonics game on the fridge to the pyjama drawer in the guest room and back again with lightning speed. He is ever so much more interesting than he was when we left for the holidays, I have to say.
Signal is also, knock on wood, sleeping a bit better these days. He is still getting up 2-3 times a night, but settles much more easily and seems to be more rested when he gets up in the morning.He's almost fully transitioned to one nap a day now, with his night sleep being about 12 hours. Slowly, slowly we are getting there.
