Landon is hanging out with his Godmom for the day. She's got a pool and toys and a portable crib and a big house for him to crawl all around in- there's even a miniature dachshund that is just his size! I know he's having a blast and she is too. I'm a big believer in the "it takes a village to raise a child" and I'm quite happy to pass off my baby to a member of my blessedly large village while I listen to back-to-back bar exam lectures. And who am I kidding- I'd take the opportunity even without a bar exam looming. I'd use it for errands or a date with JP or just sitting on the couch doing absolutely NOTHING for a few glorious hours (now glancing wistfully at the couch I'm not sitting in and the TV that is not tuned into mindless daytime shows).
Landon has recently started the separation anxiety phase, but I think because there have always been so many people in his life, it really hasn't been too bad. The only time he cries is if there's a hand off from me directly to someone else's arms. If I put him on the floor with someone else and then leave, he's fine. When JP and I left him this morning he was on the floor with Godmama petting the carpet and telling her all about it. I wish I had my camera with me - it was an adorable moment. He kept looking up at her with little smiles and she looked like she was about to cry . Of course she has her own absurdly cute grandson who is her #1 baby, but Landon is doing pretty well in his #2 spot. How lucky is he to have so many people in his life who love him so much? (And how lucky are JP and I?!)
JP used his day off to eat more Tex-Mex and get a haircut- I believe he is now napping. I am finished "Contracts and Sales II" and will be moving on to "Agency and Partnership" shortly. Oh the exciting lives we lead!
