Happy One Month

Chunk[1. My nickname for Ivy...] is one month old today! She's getting to be a ton of fun, now that she stays awake longer. She's such a happy baby, and I really hope she stays that way.

I have eight more weeks to spend with my babies before I have to return to work. Ivy hates bottles and pacifiers right now. I'm going to exclusively breastfeed for another month before I attempt to transition her. I also need to get on the ball with looking for a daycare. I was set on sending them back to the one I used with JJ, but that's on the other side of town. I'm probably going to start on Monday, just to be sure that I can secure some spots at whichever I choose.

J and I have discussed me being a stay-at-home mom. My parents don't think it's a good idea, but I'm really considering it. After April 21st, I'll be working from 8-5:30[2. 6:30 on Fridays] and some Saturdays. I'm mostly worried about not having much time to spend with my children. They are my life, you know? *sigh* Life is too complicated. Here's a few more photos from today.

    I completely understand, going back to work post baby is so tough!! Try to enjoy the little time you have now before you have to transition back. Good luck with finding a proper daycare!

    I remember seeing pictures of your belly WAITING for babygirl to arrive. I miss them being that little just not wanting to wake up every so often. My son JUST started sleeping thru the night. And, it's been 2 years already since he's been that little. MAN. But, he was breastfed for a LONG time. Well, almost 2 years. She's a beauty tho. I cannnot believe how fast time flew by! If you're able to be a SAHM and financially you're able to -- DO IT. You get to 1) experience all the milestones of your children, 2) you won't miss your children and 3) I don't have a #3. But, it's a blessing. I mean, I was a SAHM with my daughter -- and it costs a lot to have a sitter unless you get 'em for free. IT's your getaway to be able to work. But, I missed my daughter, I worked for 5 months. Then with my son, I go to school full time and I tried to work part time -- NO TIME with my kids. So I quit my job after I lost my mom and just do full time school.

    I'm happy for you. Is your daughter way different from your son? Mines are alike yet different. My son was a clingy baby but my daughter didn't mind being a chillaxed baby. It was nice.

      They have some similarities. They both get really upset easily. JJ was more independent. Ivy is the clingy one. She won't sleep by herself or stay alone for a long time. JJ has never needed a nightlight..she's afraid of the dark.

      I'm going to work for a while just to replace my time for maternity leave. After that I'm not sure what's going to happen.

    She's beautiful. I'm sure she will stay happy. Breast feeding is great. I would love to have that experience. Savannah didn't want to be breast feed. 🙁

    In my own opinion, I would be a stay at home mom. I don't think there is anyone that could care for my kids better than I can, If you guys can afford it then you should consider it. If there is a growing opportunity at your job then why not see where it take you.
