When I walk to the pumping room, I have a backpack on (the pump), laptop in the crook of my arm and my little ice cooler in the other hand. Often times people pass me in the hall and say “have a good day!” or “see you tomorrow!” I just smile – I don’t want to say, “not going home yet, just going to a room to get milk out of my boobs!”
When I’m done pumping, I go into the ladies room to clean the bottles and shields out. I do this as fast as I can and avert eye contact. It’s weird to see your coworker cleaning baby bottles out. And for those who aren’t moms, they are probably wondering what the heck those cone things are for – or worse, they figure out what they are used for. Awkward, awkward, awkward.
And finally today, I was putting my little ice pack/cooler in the fridge and a girls says “oh how cute your little lunch bag is!” And I said, “yes…it’s small.” I didn’t know what to say.
Did I mention pumping at work is awkward?

The last 30 days have brought HUGE milestones for Charlie. He is doing such big boy things now. Charlie is full on crawling - and he is fast. The cool tile in our bathroom and entryway does not stop him from zooming around the house. Any floor is fair game.In addition to crawling, he pulls him self up and is standing by himself (by holding on to something of course). Not only is he pulling himself up and standing, he can stand and hold himself with ONE hand. Is he a freak or is this normal at this age? I love my freak.
He's recently been sticking his tongue out - a lot. He went through a phase a few months ago when he "found" his tongue but he has now found it again apparently. I love to try to kiss his tongue. Thats weird, I probably shouldn't admit that.
Charlie's Mimi also took pictures of Charlie on his 7 month birthday. I'm not sure what is going on with outfit #1 but they were too cute to not post.
This toy is his favorite toy right now.
We have a ton of video but I'll spare you a little. I'm not sparing you 100% though. Here is a video of him crawling, taken a few days ago.
And here are two videos of him pulling himself up on his 7 month birthday. I rotated the camera to get a longer view of him, but now I can't figure out how to rotate the video. Sorry the next two videos are crooked.
Happy Birthday, Monkey! We love you!!

So this will be my first That's Random post.
I love getting earwax out of Charlie's ears. The more orange, the better. I'll even fish it out, gently, with my finger or nail. I examine what I've plucked out. As soon as I get home from work, I always pick him up then start eyeing his ears. The boy has a lot of wax and mommy likey! Rob thinks its totally disgusting that I do this.

After lunch, we did a little shopping.
Charlie decided to go #2 while shopping so I had to change his diaper in one of the dressing rooms. I'm sure the other patrons enjoyed the scent we left behind. Then he passed out for a bit.
Part 3 will include some great pictures from the course and some super cute daddy and son reunion pictures.

Our room does have a partial ocean view which is nice - our last room didn't have a view of the ocean.
I've been spit up on many parts of my body, but I don't think I've ever gotten it in the eye.
