Today was the first day back to work for me. It was so hard to leave this morning since Simon was still awake when I left and wanting to play. I’ll admit I cried when giving him a kiss goodbye as I headed out the door.
Yesterday I baked this cake to say thank you for their well wishes and their gifts for Simon. The cake pan is from Williams-Sonoma, comes as a set of two for the top and bottom of the donut. I used the recipe on the back of the box and substituted whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour.
The cake was a hit especially the chocolate glaze.
Simon had a good day with daddy and I got to see pictures of him throughout the day on Facebook on my phone.
Simon sucking on a teething ring instead of his hands or a pacifier.
He’s wearing one of his Paul Frank outfits with his “Stud” bib, Ron called him a “Stud Monkey”.
And he changes into “Super Monkey”, just by moving the bib to his back… up, up, and away!
When I got home from work Simon was napping so didn’t get to play with him right away. He woke up around 7:30pm so that I could play with him for an hour or so before giving him a bath and putting him to bed. Ron went out to the Giants vs Dodgers game (Unfortunately Giants lost 2-4) with friends so I had Simon all to myself in the evening.
It will be an early night for me as I am still figuring out my routine. Work itself wasn’t overly stressful but trying to figure out what’s changed in the last four months is a bit difficult. Plus I had sudden afternoon sleepiness and didn’t have the luxury of a nap so had to push myself through.
