Dear Henry.

Dear Henry,

Your dad and I were lucky enough for me to find a job where I can take you with me to work everyday. You make my days more enjoyable and although I love my job, it is ten times better with you there. Even the most stressful situations aren't so bad when I know I can run to you at any point, just to smell that sweet baby goodness and rub my lips over your fuzzy, soft head. It's so refreshing.

Every (cold!) morning as I rudely awaken you in my hurried rush to get out the door, I feel so guilty for ruining your sleep. But when I'm changing your diaper and trying to buckle you into your car seat so super fast because we're running late (again!) and I'm stressed beyond belief, you are so patient with me as you smile and coo and send me looks that say, "Hey, at least we're in this together!"

You love the children I work with and they love you just as much. It's almost like you have a brother and sister and I enjoy watching you all grow together. F knows how to make you smile and coo (and she's only known you for a few weeks!) and little R babbles to you and you try to talk back. I love that I can watch you learn from your new, tiny friends.

I look forward to work everyday, because I know that it is another day I get to spend with my sweet boy.

I recently found your blog and absolutely LOVE it! Henry is positively adorable and I love seeing all the homemade onesies you've made for him! This post has really helped me lately- I am a nanny to 2 girls (3 years and 3 months) and am pregnant and due in August. I will hopefully get a few weeks off but sometimes I find myself laying awake at night dreading over going back to work after my baby is born... reading this makes me realize it IS a blessing I have a job where I can still make money while spending every day with my son. So many people don't have that luxury. And you are very inspiring and seem so positive it gives me a much brighter outlook on the situation! Again, loving reading about your adventures <3
