I got up a little early this morning - 6:15. Chris is still asleep (for now anyway). It's nice to have a free minute to drink my coffee. I'm always happier when I drag myself up early, but still rarely do it.
I'm wondering about jobs again. Not for now, but for sooner than 5 yrs from now. I'm meeting with some TFA people in the next week about "upcoming opportunities." Who knows where that will lead. Of course right now I'm pretty content sitting here with my coffee at 7am with no job to run off to.
We gave Chris his MMR vac at his 15m appt yesterday. So far he hasn't had any reaction at all. By bed time you wouldn't have known he'd had it (actually, but 2 mins after you wouldn't have known). But you hear so much about it I'm still a little concerned. We also got the go ahead to test for egg and nut allergies. It'll be nice to know either way, but I'm a little worried of finding out he *is* allergic to eggs - I keep trying to convince myself it's nothing.
I'm also starting to wonder about a VBAC vs CSection for the new baby. At first I just assumed I'd have a C Section again since it's inside 2 yrs. But the more I think about it I wonder if I should consider a VBAC under the right circumstances. I certainly wouldn't be induced again, but if I go into labor naturally and it progresses quickly, maybe I should give that a chance to happen. I wouldn't want to have surgery for no reason. There are risks associated with both, and both are pretty rare. I just feel like I should see what my body says when the time comes. So I guess I'll talk to the doc about that at next week's appointment.
Chris has started climbing on chairs and sitting at the table. he's also drinking competently out of a cup (although never a sippy cup). More words come daily. His favorites now are up and down.
Merry Christmas Everyone
