Today I had a chance to talk with Pat. He really is such an amazing husband. No matter what I throw at him, he always seems to have the right answer. He has a way of making me feel better no matter what has me down, and he is able to do this from over 7000 miles away. I cannot imagine a more supportive and caring husband.
Ryan is growing and changing every day. Today I was impressed by the fact that he is 100% proficient at using his sippy cup. Yes, I know he's 10 months and some children do this earlier. However, considering he hasn't even taken a bottle in the last 6 months, I thought using a cup might prove challenging. He's played with the cup before, but didn't really use it to drink. Most of the time I don't even give him a cup. Tonight after his dinner he was having a piece of Zwieback Toast, and that usually makes him thirsty. I gave him a cup with a little bit of water in it, and he drank it all. I cannot get over how fast he learns new things and what a wonderful little boy he is.
I'm still saving my good clothes for Pat's return. That means that until then I can be found in sweats or pants that are so big they could fall off at any moment thanks to the living alone diet. I'm also waiting on the haircut and eyebrow wax that I desperately need until closer to Pat coming home. I've been checking out Sephora lately too. It is such a guilty pleasure of mine. I feel like I'm waiting on lots of things for myself, but I really find no reason to indulge when I never see anyone.
