February Already

Gosh time is seriously flying. I cannot believe I only have the remaindrt of this week and 2 full weeks left on my leave. I have loved loved loved being home with her everyday but I do miss adult interaction. Call me crazy but I love my job and I miss it too! I am also ready to have somewhat of a routine. I will for sure have to get my butt out of bed earlier. I also have this crazy idea of joining the gym up town but I'm holding off on that till I get used to having a baby to get ready in the morning. Don't get me wrong Matt will be around to help too but I don't want to bite off more than I can chew.

Reagan is a month old already, well over a month old already. Crazy crazy crazy! She is getting into a routine at night which this mama loves. We do bath, snuggle, read a book, and go to bed hopefully by 9. She usually wakes up somewhere between 3:00 and 3:30 eats for 15-20 minutes and goes back to sleep. Usually I get up and pump the other side at this time. Now she does have her moments usually about every 3rd night where once she wakes up she thinks it is time to stay up and play.  It usually takes about 2 hours and she finally goes back to sleep.

We go back to the doctor on Monday for her one month and I go to my doctor for my post partum. I am interested to see how much the chunk weighs. I noticed Sunday at church when I was holding her just how heavy she has become. This also means that I have had to pack away her newborn clothes. Thankfully we didn't get many of just newborn most of them are 0-3 months so we still have time to wear them.


  1. Good luck as you go back to work! Glad to hear that Reagan is eating and sleeping well for you...I'm sure that will make the transition easier for you. I think I'd hold off on the gym a little while until you tackle work first but if you are like me, eyeing those pre-pregnancy jeans:).

  2. Wow! Over a month...that is hard to believe :) We have our 1 month for Felicia next Wednesday!! I hear you on missing work a bit. I "liked" my school's page on facebook and whenever photos from school events are posted, I miss my students and coworkers! We'll be going to the school Ash Wednesday mass next week and then I'll stop in and introduce our little lady to the teachers/staff (we have still been limiting her outings/public appearances due to the flu!). We need to start more of a bed time routine. My husband gets home at all different times (and usually quite late at night) so we've been slow about a routine because we both feel like she needs some time in his arms each night. The last 2 nights have been better because after we get ready for bed I have been keeping her in our room even if she fusses instead of trying to comfort her in the living room or her nursery, which is what I was doing so my husband wouldn't be disturbed.

    Will you be posting some more pictures of your sweet girl? I can't get enough!

  3. AH! I don't know how I've missed your blog for about NINE months! That's horrible! So, congratulations on your pregnancy and your precious and beautiful girl! Ack! I'm embarrassed!

  4. Good luck going back to work!! And I hope the upcoming appts go well!
