I can do this...


Its been about 8 weeks since my precious baby girl was born and I am so honored to be her mommy. I don't think anyone is prepared for the flood of emotions that comes with being a new mom. From overjoyed to even sad at times, I can see why postpartum depression is talked about so frequently! I think the common misconception is, though, that a mom is sad in some way because of inter-personal reasons...what about just being sad that it has been 8 weeks already!? Time flies so quickly these days. At times I feel like it was just minutes ago that I fed Ainsley, but yet, I am doing it again...wait, it WAS just minutes ago! :) This child can EAT! In the words of my dear friend, Alli, I am a 24 hour "breastaurant" but, I wouldn't have it any other way! :)

This week does bring some changes into our routine. No longer do I hang out in my pj's all day, I have started actually missing work! Can you believe that!? I know, me neither. I love my job and I know that I am a bit OCD about the way things are handled while Im away. It is driving me nuts to consider the absolute chaos my office is...SO-I am taking a HUGE step and trusting a nanny with my precious angel. After a few interviews (and background checks) Wyatt and I have found and hired a nanny. I can do this. I can do this. I can leave my child for a couple of hours, three times a week...

or...I think I can...we will see!

Since I have been absent from Blogger...here are some pictures to catch you up on Ainsley's growth!


Headed to shop...she is thrilled! ...or sleepy?!


Her favorite napping spot! And daddy loves it, too ;)
