A working Mom

Today is my last day staying home with Kendall. I am sad, anxious, nervous, and excited all at the same time. I have really, really enjoyed being home with Kendall everyday. It will be extremely, extremely hard to leave this face tomorrow, but I will do and it will be OK.
I am a little embarrassed to say that I only have to go back to work for 13 days and then I have another 9 weeks off with Kendall. I am very fortunate to work the job I do in which I don't ever work a full month without at least one day a week off, I get 8-9 weeks off every summer, a 2 week winter break, and a 1 week Spring break. I couldn't ask for a better schedule.

Kendall will be staying with my mom and grandma the next 13 days that I have to work. In the fall she will be going to a home sitter in the neighborhood of the school I work at. We are very lucky for that. She will be within walking distances of my school and my principal's son will be with her!
I can't believe my baby is already 7 weeks old. She changes more and more everyday from the day she was born.
To today she has become a new baby! I love listening to all the new sounds she makes each day and just watching her grow. I am definitely one lucky mommy and one lucky wife!

I also don't know some of you blogger moms keep up with your blog like you do! I guess I will get better with more practice lol. But, this is the first week since we have been home that Kendall has napped in her bed by herself for about 2-3 hours at a time! So, if she keeps that up then I think I can keep up my blogging, but we will see:)
