Return To Oz

Anyone remember this movie? Anyone remember the wheelers? What a creepy movie.  If you haven't seen it, find it.  It could be a Halloween movie, I guess.  Any how, this post has nothing to do with that except for the fact that I did return to somewhere.  I returned to work.

I started back last Monday and the whole weekend before I just had that "day before the first day of school" feeling ALL weekend. It sucked!!! There wasn't a whole lot of crying but don't get proud of me yet because there was crying.  I had been with my precious baby for 13 weeks and the longest I had been away from her was 3 hours.  How was I going to last 10 hours away?  10 hours!!! Well, get ready to get proud.....I only cried ONCE.  Just when I dropped her off.  We are beyond blessed that we take her to Zach's mom's. I can't express how blessed we are.  If I was having to take her to a daycare I would've sat in the parking lot all day.  Thank you Lord that I don't have to go through that.

Morning mommy time


Hanging out at Gigi's

We met Sophie this week

In all honesty it hasn't been that bad but it's been busy.  My day starts at 4:15.  Early.  I have to get up this early to have enough time to pump and get myself ready before I get Evy up at 6:00 to get her fed, spend a little one on one time with her, get her ready, get Phoebe fed and taken care of and the car packed up.  Yes, packed up.  There are five different bags and one baby that leave the house with me every day.  It's a load.

My work days are going by pretty fast though.  I'm having to pump twice while at work and as much as a hassle it is to bring all my equipment with me every day the little breaks are kind of nice.  Gives me time to stare at pictures of Evelyn.  I just can't get enough.

You would think my first week being away from her I would've spent all weekend with her and never put her down but we had a date to go to the Tulsa State Fair so my sister came over and watched her.  My sister has been itching for a chance to get some alone time with her so I didn't feel too bad.  Being an aunt myself, sometimes you just don't want the mom hovering over you and I want Evelyn to have a great relationship with my sister the same way I have a great relationship with her kids.  I love them like they are my own.

Mommy and daddy's first big night out

I've had plans every night to get a blog out there but by the time Evelyn goes to sleep I am so wiped out that it's rare if I see 10:00.  Every single minute of my day is accounted for.  

Let's talk about Evelyn.  This child has made a complete change.  The "books" say that at 13 weeks most babies get calmer and more interactive.  It's true.  It was like a whole different baby.  She found her feet last week and it was pretty much the highlight of the week.  She looks longer every day and that hair is still red red red.  I love it! 

Hopefully I can try to keep up with the blog better.  I've been adjusting to this new schedule and when I come home in the evening I just want to hold her and note her changes.  

Now it's time to go pump.  

Have a great weekend!


  1. Evelyn is looking so big!! And you are very lucky that Zach's mom keeps her while you are at work. I would give my right arm for that. You are already looking so cute only three months out! I can't wait to finally meet you next month-- eeekkk. :)

  2. Glad you handled dropping her off okay. I can't imagine how difficult that must've been. Just crying once is doing really well in my book! ;) And hey, glad you guys had fun at the fair!


Thanks for making my day and stopping by!
