I made it!

I survived my first week back at work. It wasn't fun and I now admire all of my friends who have kids and work full time. Not that I didn't admire them before or that I don't admire SAHMs but wow... There's really no time for anything during the week. I struggled to get dinner cooked every night (in fact, we went out Thursday and had take out on Friday). Not to mention the fact that I was exhausted from getting up before the rooster.

I am VERY lucky in that my very good friend, Lonebutterfly, is keeping Nancy Carolyn while I go to school each day. She texted me during the day and let me know how my love was doing and on occasion, I got a picture :) There are 23 days of school left (25 counting post planning)... I CAN DO IT!!!

Oh and say some prayers for me, I'm hoping that it will work out for me to work part time next year.

3 months

Nancy Carolyn is 3 months today. She's getting so big. I don't have official stats since we don't have a doctor's appointment this month, BUT I'm assuming she weighs about 12 lbs and well, no idea how long she is. She's cooing and talking to us a lot more. I can't remember if I've said but she's also found her thumb. She sucks on it (or her fingers or her hand or her fingers and her thumb) to help her fall asleep. She also sleeps on her side and we never know how we'll find her in her crib. She definitely moves a lot. She can hold her head up pretty good and sits in the Bumbo seat some. She loves to sit up and look around. I love going in her room in the morning and getting a big gummy smile. She's a happy baby (for the most part...) and we just love her more and more each day!

So sorry to be MIA lately. We had a busy Easter weekend (pictures to come), slightly busy week last week, ending with loss of internet and a busy weekend this past weekend. Internet is back up and running but I need to go get a new router so we can once again enjoy our wifi.

Easter weekend was a wonderful time. My cousin's baby turned one and she hosted a birthday party/egg hunt for Sam's birthday. It was wonderful to see my family and hang out a bit. AND of course, show off Princess Nancy Carolyn. Easter Sunday was a lot of fun too. We took Nancy Carolyn to church. We decided to go to church with grandaddy (my dad) and Nana (Sue) because they were having an Easter musical. After church, we headed to lunch and by the time we got home, Nancy Carolyn was EXHAUSTED. She took like a 4 hour nap! She woke up and was excited to discover her BFF, GO was here visiting.

Last week, we took a trip to visit and meet Aunt Jennifer and cousin Ellis. The girls were so cute (and oblivious to each other).

My new KodakZi8 camera arrived last week and all I can say is beware because the videos will be posting soon :)

Grandma and Pop (Chris's parents) came to visit us this past weekend. Pop and Chris installed ceiling fans in 3 rooms. AND Nancy Carolyn slept through her "second" wedding. (second because she was in the womb at her Uncle Zach's wedding back in August)

Coming soon... new pics and videos!
