In January I went back to work part-time, and Noah started going to day-care. It was so hard for us to be apart, and even harder for me to think about leaving him with strangers. I cried quite a bit at the beginning, but overall I think it's been a positive transition for us. Noah is much more comfortable around other kids that he was before, and I appreciate some "adult" time some days. Maybe we appreciate each other more this way.
Other firsts in January: First teeth, first illness, first time saying "Mama"
