Robert Lee is doing really well despite the fact that it seems like every month we are fighting another ear infection. He has taken off with walking and is probably going to start running soon. He is so cute, when he is walking away from you if you say to him "I'm gonna get you" he will try to run, of course he just walks a little faster but I am sure that he will be running in no time at all.
He started day care on 11/12 and so far he is doing really well. His teachers and everyone there are really nice, very kind and caring towards him. I can tell though that he misses the one on one contact that he had with me when he was home every day since we moved to Flagstaff. At night he is so clingy, I have to make sure that I get everything done around the house that I need to get done before I go and pick him up or nothing at all would get done.
He now has 16 teeth, not sure how many they are supposed to get I think that it's 20 or something like that. I honestly can't wait for the teething to be done, he is so crabby and drools like a freaking St. Bernard all the time. The teeth on top of the cold that he caught at day care is making for a runny nose all the time and him screaming when his nose has to be wiped.
He got his first real hair cut the other day, we went to Fantastic Sam's where my mom and I both get our hair cut. The lady that cut his hair was awesome with him, didn't have any expectations that he would actually sit still for her, she just went with the flow and the clippers followed where ever his head went. We found out that since it was his first hair cut in a salon that it was free, woohoo!
As for me, things are going good. I don't regret my decision at all to leave Robert and move to Flagstaff. Sadly, I know that the relationship between Robert and I was over way before I left. It has already been over two months and I honestly haven't looked back once. On the relationship that is, I do miss working! I miss my friends at the hotel and actually getting up and going to work every day. Now my days consist of getting up and taking Robert Lee to day care and then coming home and cleaning up the house and doing some school work maybe visiting with Kelly and her boys if they come over.
So far school is going good, I have only had one class though but hey thats one less class to take :)
We are going to go to Phoenix tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving week with my family. I have a feeling that it's going to be a long week but honestly thats ok, it's nice that after 4 years of fighting with Robert about where I was going to spend the holidays that I don't have to worry about that anymore. I can go and do what I want to! I am kind of torn though, I know that I should let Brenda and Henry see Robert Lee but I just don't know if I am ready for that yet.
