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 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 ;)
