One day down...thousands more to go!

So my first day back to work was really good!  Right now it's 2:30 and I'm getting ready to leave (our school day is from 7:25-2:10), go home and see my sweetie pies waiting for me there!

To be perfectly honest, today felt like a day of freedom.  It was so strange to not be thinking constantly about feeding Sofia or changing Sofia or being quiet while she sleeps.  It's not like those things are difficult or anything - in fact I love them.  It's just weird to not feel so totally responsible during these hours.  I actually got to shop on-line a little bit (shhh - don't tell!) and in general am having a happy day.  Perhaps it's the novelty of being out of the house and maybe it'll wear off, but so far so good.

I spoke to Russ earlier and he put the phone to Sofia's ear while I spoke to her and he said she looked very confused.  I can't wait to go home and kiss her!!!!

I'll leave you with a precious picture of my baby girl.

How did we get so lucky to have such a precious beautiful daughter?  I keep pinching myself and can't believe it's real.


  1. She's amazingly pretty! Her features are just so soft and perfect! :)

    I'm so glad you survived today and even enjoyed it some. I can imagine the freedom would be nice and that's something to look forward to. Thank goodness you have such a great work schedule!

  2. I'm so happy you had a good first day back! What a joy it is to look forward to going home everyday so you can kiss and hug that sweet baby!! She is precious!

  3. I love your schedule, that is so awesome you get to be home so early in the afternoon....I am glad you had a good first day, sounds like Miss Sophia did too! It's so nice to have you back online again...although you were pretty good at keeping up considering your circumstances (iphone)....And I said it before and will say it again - I LOVE that picture of your daughter...she is simply amazingly beautiful. Well worth the wait! :)
