I have a bad tendency to neglect my blog. It isn't a lack of things to say, so much as a lack of time.
Lucy is still a complete joy. She has been teething for a few weeks and I can finally feel the little teeth just under the surface. Of course this also means she is a super drool monster but I love her. She smiles so much now and laughes and it just melts me. Life with her is simply incredible. She's going to the doctor tomorrow for her four month check-up. I'm interested to see how much she weighes now. She is getting so long and she has such cute, chubby cheeks. :D
I never thought I would be the mom that talks about her kid constantly and loves to show off pictures but that's me now. Lucy is just so important to me and she takes so much of my time and energy. And in my opinion, none of these are a bad thing. I am just stating the obvious.
I returned to work at the beginning of October. Let me preface this topic with the fact that I love all the women I work with. Let me also say that my job as a whole is quite enjoyable. But the fact of the matter is, I would rather be a stay-at-home mommy. It just isn't possible for us right now though. Gary will be graduating soon and we'll see what happens with his job situation once that takes place. I was hopeful that he could get on with UTC but the job closed earlier than expected and may or may not be part of an on-going hiring freeze. Regardless, the market is the same everywhere... bad. The new plan for our family is for me to work full-time at least until the next child, which we hope means about two years.
I'll try to write something more interesting soon but I make no promises.
Much love and many blessings,
