Oh, sweet Josephine0
Tomorrow my baby is 5 months old and I’ve settled into a wonderful groove in my maternity leave. I’ve been off work for over 6 months and it feels wonderful! I’m so to live in a country that has such great parental leave. Thanks Canada!
While I’m only getting about 55% of pay right now, being at home and knowing my job still exists for me is great. I am so appreciative to be able to spend this short time watching my baby grow.
Returning to work still feels so far off that I can’t yet entertain the thought of being nurse Andrea. I know that February 2013 will eventually creep up, but for now we have the summer to look forward to and new baby milestones to clap over.
At 5 months old this baby rolls over both ways, loves to stand with assist and sits for seconds by herself. She won’t take a soother but you can bet she will try to jam your hand into her mouth. She smiles a lot, coos and babbles and with talk back to you if you make silly noises.
Oh, sweet Josephine I am so happy that I get to spend my days with you.
