It has been an amazing 10 months and I can’t begin to say how much I adore being a dad. I have to be honest, I always questioned if you could love a second child as much as the first, always worrying that I just didn’t have anything more to give, but what I have found over the last ten months is I have a ton more to give, and each day the amount increases. My wife, who probably wants a third is going to read this and I am going to say this only one time…no way….knowing our luck we would have twins.
So what is going on in our house? Well the job turmoil has reached an all time high and I fear for my job each day. I don’t see eye to eye with my direct manager, his supervisor or the direction the company is heading in at all. Constant layoffs, removal of benefits, no raises for years and a joke of a bonus structure equates to everyone in the department being disgruntled. There is such a lack of respect for the workers and everyone is feeling it. It has become petty and nasty.
On a brighter note, my house was invaded tonight by my nephew so it turns out Eli is having a sleepover. Watching them laugh and play together is very rewarding, but at the same time makes me glad we are only having two kids. I just gave them the 10 minute until sleep warning. I wonder how many more warnings they will need before they actually go to sleep.
Zach is crawling and cruising, he is eating only real human food and rejects baby food and is already drinking from a straw. We think getting him off the bottle is going to be easy and did I mention that he is an eater? We are going to have to watch this one and make sure he does not get fat, it already looks like his is going to be short like his mother.
