Back to work :-(

This is Alida at her first picnic in VA!

This is Alida and her best friend Olivia!!

Daddy burping Alida...she always looks so much older when she sits up :-)

A smile actually caught on camera!!!

I cannot believe how time has flown!!! In two weeks I have to return to work :-( Something that I am not looking forward to! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my little angel!!! I don't necessarily hate my job but who wouldn't rather spend time with this beautiful little baby?! Every day she changes a little bit more. I remember thinking that I couldn't wait until she could smile at I can't wait till she laughs!
She went to the doc the other day...she already weighs 11 lbs and 6 oz!! She is growing so fast - she measured 22 1/2 inches long. Almost 4 lbs and 3 inches since birth!!
She is still sleeping through the night....every single night!! Anywhere between 8 and 10 hours! I am not looking forward to the nights where she wakes at 3 am and won't go back to sleep. I pray to God every night that she keeps sleeping like a champ. I am sure that she will be up all night the night before I go back to work.
So, for motherhood....I love it! I feel as though I could join my sister and have 7 more!!! Matt would never ever agree to it though :-)

3 hugs:

How is it that she looks so different in pictures than she does in person!? I'm looking at the pix in amazement of how different she looks from when you brought her in last week! well you're not looking fwd to your return but I AM!!!!! :) I miss the emails and the lunch dates! You're dreading it but i'm counting down the days haha!
Kisses to Lida bean!

8 sounds like such a great idea! My kids would love to have the cousins!!!

She is absolutely beautiful - and I'm hoping to come up sometime in February (unless you come down here before then!) to see her in person!
