Stripes, Leopard & a Chevron Wrapped Baby


All the patterns here!  But by far the best is the chevron wrapped baby (blanket by Jameson Monroe)... I mean, look at that sweet head, and how long he's getting.  My how he's growing... so fast, too fast!  I go back to work tomorrow. TOMORROW. That means this lil man will be 12 weeks old.

On going back to work... brings tears to my eyes thinking of him at daycare not knowing who is holding him.  Will he laugh and smile at them?  Will he remember me when I come to pick him up. Will he be sad to be there, or maybe worse, sad to leave?

Thankfully, 2 days a week he'll be with his Gramma who he loves so much in our home that he knows.

And with time, I'm sure we'll get use to a new routine and get on track.  And hopefully I will stop crying every time I think about him without me for so long 5 days a week...

  2. I'm crying for you. Just remember that you're working with caregivers. They love babies and kids. I try to think of it that way. I haven't had to do non-family day care just yet, but that's what I think of as I mentally try to prep myself for the day. I can't believe 12 wks went by so fast. It's nice that your mom is in the mix. I hope this week goes excellent-ly. :)

  3. You are too cute for words--LOVE the striped blazer! I find so much great Cynthia Rowley stuff at TJs!

    Going back to work will be hard, but you will both be just fine. Instead of thinking of all of the things he'll be doing without you, and what you might miss, think about all of the wonderful adventures he's going to have, and how all of those things will make him into such an independent little person. He will learn to explore things and people and places! And soon you're going to learn all about those people who are taking care of him each day--and it won't be so scary when they aren't such strangers. Chin up mama--you'd doing a great job!

  4. I love how your outfit styling now includes the beb! Perfectly incorporated into that awesome outfit. Way to mix patterns in an elegant and work-appropriate way - I just end up looking clown-like. So high five.
