2 Months Down...

Clearly my plans for keeping up with the blog fell through.  Every time I would sit down to write something, Pace would need me or the phone would ring or the laundry buzzer would go off.  For some reason I thought I would have all this free time to do projects and write while Pace napped....but I forgot about all the other life things that need to happen when I have a few minutes.....like showering and brushing my teeth or paying bills.  Ha.  Boy was I naive.

But just because I haven't been writing doesn't mean that I don't have a lot to tell you.  Despite my limited free time, I have been able to get a few projects done here and there.   Like finishing the nursery, updating the guest bedroom/office, creating a hallway frame gallery, finding an umbrella for the deck and completing the walkway project (installing new steps....although we hired someone to do that part).  We are also in the beginning phases of finishing our basement.  I can't wait to share these updates with you!

For now though, I will leave you with some recent pics of the little guy.  He is changing so much every day.  I can't even stand it!

He loves our little photoshoots.....for now at least.  I'm sure that he will be pushing the camera out of his face once he learns that he can.  Haha.  I will enjoy it as long as I can though.

I'm also just 1.5 weeks away from returning to work and I can't tell you how much anxiety I have over it.  1/2 of me misses the office environment (weird, I know) and the social interaction and the other 1/2 can't imagine being away from my peanut for that long each day.  For some reason I thought that it would be a breeze to return to work, but the closer I get, the harder it is to swallow.  I have also been thinking about my career and I really want a change.  This would be the perfect time to do it, but I just don't know if I have the guts to take such a big leap of faith.  B is wonderful and supports me regardless of what I decide.....but that is almost harder than if he had an opinion.  I have to make this decision all on my own and it is nerve-racking!  Have any of you guys been through this before?  Did you think you would return to work and then decide not to?  Did you go back and regret it?  Any thoughts or insights on this would be amazing.  

Ugh, and I thought labor was hard......


  1. I love that last picture!! Well. . . first let me say it is hard and this is totally normal. I didn't think I would cry when I left E and went back to work but I did. It was so very hard. it will get easier with time and it just makes you cherish that time so much more when you are with the little guy. Good luck!

  2. He is so sweet! Hope you are enjoying lots of cuddle time... Isn't it crazy how fast time goes and how busy life with a baby is!?! Good luck returning to work...

  3. Oh Heather, he is so darn cute! I dont envy you returning to work so quickly!
