Exams, work and other nonsense

I have been unbelievably swamped the last few weeks with going back to work and studying for a section of my CPA exam. It took it today though so hopefully things will go back to normal. No clue if I passed it or not, the pass rate isn't that high and it was extremely difficult, so fingers crossed that I got the 75% and never have to look at that darn thing again. I'll have to wait about 8 weeks to see.

I really didn't take into account how difficult it would be to study, work and try to squeeze in time with the most important people in my life. It was hard to focus with the other million things I had to do and so frustrating to be missing out on time with my wonderful, sweet little boy. Every day I think he changes. From growing what seems like inches overnight, to learning new things, to making new noises, every day is an adventure.

His latest:
1) real chuckles. Now big belly laughs accompany his gummy smiles. They may sound like some strange screeching/squeeling, but rest assured, they are real laughs. Just you try to hear them and not laugh right along!

2) he's become much more interested in watching me. While I'm feeding him, he'll look up at me, stop, smile and just stare at me with a big smile on his face. I think he suddenly is realizing where the food is coming from!

3) thumbsucking. We knew it was coming and here it is...

Puzzle of the day. You're at the bottom of the stairs, have a baby in your arms and need to take the clean laundry upstairs to put away. Hmmm... and the solution is:

Multi-tasking at its finest

Watching Mommy put away clean laundry. How does one little creature generate so much?

Oh, YOU know!

And one more for good measure
