1st day back to work

Today was the first day that I went back to work after having Baby C. Im really looking forward to my new job. Its what I had been working toward those 4 long years of college. It was quite tuff leaving my little one at home, but she will be home most of the day with her wonderful daddy and a couple of hours of the day at a pretty great day care. Leaving her is much easier since I know she is in good hands.

My orientation was a little over 2 hours away. I had to leave my home at 5:30am in order to make it there by 8. And of course Baby C was up and eating a little before 4 am (thankfully my amazing husband took care of all the other feedings last night). Needless to say it was a long day, and Im pretty sure I had more coffee today than I have had in the past year. Its 8:30pm and as soon as Im done writing, Im headed to bed. I feel old.

My mother in-law came down to stay with us this week as well. What a blessing! She is helping the transition of me starting my new job a little easier by helping us out, while we get used to our new schedule for our family.

We went to Ks. this weekend so that Baby C could meet some friends and family. It was quite a weekend for her, meeting a new person every couple of hours, being passed around and showered with kisses all day and having alot of tummy troubles. Not to mention the 6 hour drive there and back. She slept almost all day today (except when I got home and played with her)! She had so much fun though! My parents had her grinning from ear to ear every time they picked her up.

Oh wait, that was them grinning from ear to ear every time they picked her up :)

My husband got her to smile her first real smile this weekend as well. It was sooo cute! I got a nice side pic of it on my mom's camera. She usually opened her mouth and squinted her eyes when she was trying to smile but, this time it was a full out grin. Too cute!

Tomorrow I have more training, Im not sure how much training I have to do. My boss said it would be less than normal due to the fact that I had done this work before. I can't wait to get started and be on my own! Working with children and their families is what I love doing! Im so glad God gave me this job :)
