I want to thank everyone for the comments and congratulations and general well-wishes about the baby. I'd meant to answer them all individually, but given how long it's been I thought maybe this would be the more efficient route to take. ^_^; So, thanks, everyone!
It's amazing to think that he's almost two months old now. Time flies. The two months I spent at home felt more like a couple of weeks, and going back to the office this past week feels like I never left at all. Except that I miss being home for Octavian, and have all these semi-irrational worries about him doing all his growing up in the 40 hours I'm gone every week and I'll miss it all. ^_^; I don't remember fretting like this with AJ, but then again he was five months before I started working so maybe I'd had time to get past it.
It's funny how, now that we've got Octavian, AJ looks abruptly older, more grown-up. Like we'd overlooked how big he's getting until we suddenly have a new baby in the house to compare him to. Won't be all that long until he's a teenager, really. Which is a notion that's very difficult to wrap my head around.
Anyway. There've been so many things I'd wanted to el-jay about over the past several months; I may eventually get around to a bullet-pointed list summing them up, perhaps. Or not. There's no telling. Right now it's enough of an undertaking to keep up with the flist and monitor large fandom comms and gradually back-track missed fic. I need to update haku_ryuu
, too, but probably ought to do that after I've finished that back-tracking in case of missed Goujun fic.
