Where does the time go???

Well 6 months have come and gone and baby K is healthy and happy and BUSY!! She's rolling and trying hard to crawl. She is such a joy!! Of course I have the usual frustrations, not enough sleep and feeling Mommy burnout some of the time. I think I need to learn to leave her a bit more and get out. It's so hard for me to be away from her, but I am in need of some recharging.

But for the most part everyday is just a blessing with her. She has been a very happy, content baby and I am dreading the thoughts of returning to work, although that I know I will. We have started to contemplate baby #2 or at least giving it a try. We have not been using anything to prevent a pregnancy, but of course I haven't got pregnant yet. Although any sooner than now and I think I would have been a little overwhelmed!!

I'm heading back to the specialist in January, just to see what the plan of action would be. Would he want me back on the Met? I have 2 frozen blasts so we'll use those first, although I'm not optimistic about them surviving the thaw. Ideally I'd like to get pg again sometime around July or August so they would be about 2 years apart and I'll deliver around my 35th birthday, but we know how planning these things goes. I make plans and God laughs! So we'll see...

I'm thinking about shutting down this blog or moving on somewhere else, the entire focus and purpose of why I started this blog has changed and I'm not sure anybody is actually reading anymore, although I can't blame them with my sporadic posting. It served such a great purpose during such a trying time in my life but me and so many things have changed since then, I feel I need to change it too. I'll see how ambitious I get.

That's about it for now just enjoying one day at a time and looking forward to the holidays!!!

This and That...

Well, things are ticking along. Time flies with a little one. She is successfully sleeping through the night, now if I could only get her to nap during the day. We are still hanging in, not much new to report.

Growing like a weed and started on pablum. Everyday is a new adventure and I'm loving every minute of it. I'm still checking in on my blog buds, so please comment if any of you are still hanging around for updates and I'll post some updated pics.

A Quick Update...

This motherhood thing is so under rated. No one tells you how wonderful it is to see your baby's smile first thing in the morning (even if is is 6:45) or to see her interact with a toy for the first time! I'm telling you working hard for something really does make you appreciate it even more. Sure there is the diapers and the spit up and the middle of the night feedings, but I even find a way to enjoy those!

We are all thriving, healthy and happy. Baby K is growing like a weed! 10lbs 4oz at last check and made it through our 8 week shots with only a little grumpiness!! She is a very happy contented baby and is making every day an adventure.

This is truly the happiest I have ever been in my life! Oh yeah, worked called and offered me another contract to start in September, I said no. I'm crazy, but I don't want to miss a moment with my little girl, that I worked soooo hard for!!! Work can wait... My baby will only be a baby for so long. Yeah, we're not rich, but who needs new clothes!!! I feel great about my decision, even if others think I am crazy!
