Baby Blessing


We blessed Emma in church yesterday. It was wonderful. She wore a dress for the first time and was absolutely beautiful. (I'll post a picture later.) We felt so loved and supported by the friends and family who were there. It was a special day.

The day would have been filled with more photos, family time, and fun, but I had a nasty stomach flu that kept me on the couch. I'm taking today off work to recuperate. I figured it would be a bad idea to try to teach my class with only a few saltine crackers and 16 oz. of gatorade in my system.

On another note, Emma is starting to bat at objects! While lying "under the sea" she kept hitting her rattly octopus and I kept encouraging her. Hopefully this becomes a trend. She is also quite a stud at rolling from her tummy to her back.
It's crazy how the little things are so important.

Okay, I'm going to try eating a banana now. Wish me luck.

My first week as a working mom...

I survived.

Monday was rough, but the rest of the week has been really good.
I'm delighted to see my kiddos at work and retrain them. (How quickly they forgot my rules, routines, and procedures.) Emma is doing fantastically well with babysitters. In fact, she's doing better with them than she does with me. I think it has to do with being bottle-fed. She's able to eat more and is actually satisfied enough to nap well. Darn me and my miniature feeding parts.

I have very little time at the end of each day, so I feel a little rushed and overwhelmed with all of this. However, we're making it work. In six short weeks the craziness will be over.

Only 29 school days left.
