This has been my first week back and I can say that it has gone by quickly but not without many tears being shed. Every evening as I got ready for work I could feel that knot form in my throat and my eyes welling up with warm tears. I would pick up my precious baby boy and just hold him tight against my body. Tears streamed down my face as I knew that I would be forced to leave him behind for 12 whole hours. I did not and still do not want to leave him behind. But I am lucky. I have a loving husband who watches over him at night, making sure he gets a bath and a full tummy before Deans off to the land of Nod. Then Rodneys up early to get him to his moms house, who watches him while I sleep. He's such a fabulous daddy!
I only work 3 days. I have 5 glorious days off with my little man and I plan to fill them endless cartoons, silly songs and cardboard books.

There wasn't too much planned for the weekend, go see a couple of close friends, maybe hit one of the malls. One such close friend we went to visit was Aunt Mary. She's not really my aunt, but at one time she could've been my great aunt. Long story short, Aunt Mary is:
- My high school boyfriends great aunt
- A lady that bowls in the same league as my parents
- My moms housekeeper
- A fantastic woman
Aunt Mary is a spitfire of a woman, and at the young age of 75, she still is as active as ever. We went to her and her husband Franks house so they could meet Dean.We sat and visited with her and Frank. Mary just went goo goo over Dean, and well, who could blame her. He's so stinkin cute! I think she's in love! Dean now has an Aunt Mary. Everyone should have an Aunt Mary.
Sunday we took Dean to his very first St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. Pops bought party box tickets for the very special occasion. Dean got dressed up in his Fredbird/Pujols outfit and Rodney got a new Matt Holliday jersey, courtesy of his favorite mom-n-law. Dean enjoyed the game very much and got excited when Holliday hit a 3 run homer to give us the lead.
This is the best spot for taking pictures, section 140. You can see the Arch in the background.
