A quick trip to Lubec...and back to work....

My first week back at work just passed, and Dylan's first week at daycare. Very mixed feelings, I love my job and enjoyed being back, but I would so dearly have liked to take longer, but unfortunately in Maine (and most of the US) you can only take 12 weeks unpaid, then it's back to work. I feel like he's just got so much more interactive, and we've just got over a major hump in breastfeeding...and now it's all change. Even just this first week i've seen my (already low) milk supply tank, so this weekend and next week i'll be back on herbal supplements to hopefully be able to keep my supply going for as long as I can. With them pushing hard for nothing but breastmilk for the first 6 months, it sure would be good to have had 6 months at home to give it the best chance possible. And, to be honest, he's just so much fun to be around, he's such a happy little chap, and in this last few days has even started full on can you not want to spend more time with that....:)

As a last hurrah before going back to work, we spent the weekend in Lubec, the furthest east you can go in the USA. We spent it with our dear friends at a camp that belongs to family, and had a real blast....:)

Taking everyone for a walk....4 adults, 3 dogs, 1 teenager and 1 infant...

Did we mention one dog was blind and one ancient.....herding cats should be changed to herding dogs...
