But it's about to change. I go back to work the first Monday in August. Fortunately I'm able to ease back into a 40 hour week. I'll work 2-3 days a week through August, and go back to five days after Labor Day. I think the transition will go ok, though it will likely be hard on Taipan and Taisim when I go back full time in September.
Enough of that though - now let me talk about other changes, specifically in Taiko. He's over two months old now, and he's growing and changing so fast. Physically he's growing at a pretty good rate - he's wearing 3-6 month clothes now. And he is a very smiley baby - we saw his first smiles around six weeks or so, but it's only been the past couple weeks that he smiles at us all. the. time. And he smiles at Taipan and Taisim too - it's obvious that he enjoys them, and they think he's great too. He's still got his faux hawk going on, and he coos quite a bit. He continues to be a fairly mellow baby. He loves the sling, and has even gotten a few long naps in the Ergo with Yuta.
Here are some pics from the past few weeks. Taipan loves to have Taiko lay on his chest/belly, and Taisim prefers to cradle him.
