Back to Work!

I am back to work - yuck! Actually, it feels pretty good. I am lost, but I am sure I will catch on quickly. I have good staff that kept things rolling. I am actually working at home today, trying to weed through a million e-mails. I will go into the office tomorrow. We'll see how getting 2 kids around works for us!! Wish us luck.

Hopefully I will not cry all the way to Jeff again like I did last Wednesday!! It sucks leaving a baby, even when you love your day care provider.

This and that:

Dillon had a run in with a curb yesterday. We started out for a walk and he started to run and ate it. Of course he had to kiss the curb. You should see him. I really might have DFS show up at my house now. He has a bloody fat lip, a goose egg on his head and a few scratches! Can you say bar fight?

Since I am preparing to go back to work, I have been thinking about my maternity leave. I learned some things about myself on my time off. I have never spent so much time alone as I did on leave. This taught me a lot. I was never an "alone" person. I still love being around people, but I can be alone now and not worry about it or think I need to be doing something else. I also learned, again, how much you go on the back burner when you have a baby. It truly makes you a different person. I never thought I was a selfish person till I had children. I now live for only them at times and you know what? That is ok. It is a scary feeling, but a good feeling. I have learned that it does not matter if you are tired - you have to suck it up and go on. It may suck, but there is no other choice. So it is really not a lie when you hear that parenthood is very hard, but very worth it!!

Domestication at it's best!

If you look in the picture of Dillon and his bike, you will see a minivan. Yep, we caved. We purchased a family van. I hated to and said I never would, but man is it nice. We drove it last night and I love it already. We have so much room!! It also has a TV, so traveling will be great! Try and be gentle on the jokes - we are still a little traumatized!! :-)

Fighting every urge...

To go back to bed!! I am up and trying to stay up this morning. I am going back to work in a week and decided I better try to get use to not going back to bed. Brodie got up at 1:30 to eat and then again at 5:00 am. I went back to bed and laid down for 20 minutes and then got up. I won't be able to do that b/c I will have to get myself ready for work. Wish us luck! I might have to shine the caffeine recommendations for nursing moms when I go back to work to make it through the day!! Shh, don't tell! I am sure I will give my kid ADHD or something! Oh well, I can deal with that later.

Our friends Dusty and Kelci had their baby yesterday morning. Kamryn Ann is a healthy little girl and ready to go!! Congratulations!

Biker Boy

As promised. He went for his first bike ride last night - around the block. He did a great job. I don't think he will need the training wheels too long! Dad rode with him last night and he thought that was pretty cool!

He's come along way already!

Today Brodie is 8 weeks old! Hard to believe this was his start!

We did it!

Today is our 10 year anniversary. I really cannot believe it has been 10 years. It has been really fun - hard at times - but VERY fun! I am looking forward to 10 more (hopefully more than that too)!

I love you Jason! Thank you.
