Long Time No Post

Hi there! I hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to give an update and let everyone know how things are going. Everything is moving along just fine with the baby. Last Friday I was 20 weeks...so I'm halfway through! YAY!!! :) Very soon we are going to find out what we are having and I absolutely can't wait!!! I'm not gonna say the date on here (I know my sister reads this...LOL!) because I've been keeping it a surprise and I haven't told anyone what date we are finding out, but it will be very, very soon! ;) And as soon as I find out I will let all of you know! :) I've also been contemplating about whether to come back to work once the baby is born. I love my job, but I feel like I won't know until the baby is here. I'm not too keen about putting my baby in daycare at 6wks. old either. Trust me, I have nothing against daycare. My parents ran a daycare business for 20 something years, so I know a lot about it. But I would rather wait til the baby was a year before I did that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

It seems like every weekend we have something to do...it's been crazy. How 'bout ya'll? Between my nephew's soccer games, birthday dinners and shopping for baby furniture, my weekends are just jammed packed. I keep looking over at my scrapping table, still wanting and needing to ink up some of my new stamps and I haven't. I really hope to soon! :) This weekend my brother is having a garage sale (one of those that the whole neighborhood participates in) and so I've decided to help out with that. Plus we are cleaning out our spare bedroom for the baby so I know that I need to get rid of some things that are there collecting dust! Anywho, enough of me rambling. I just wanted to say hi and let everyone know what's been going on with me.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!!! Thanks for stopping by and take care! ~Jenn

Well it's about time we heard from you Ms Jenn!! I'm so glad to hear the first half went by smoothly. I hear you loud and clear on the day care thing. I had no choice but to go back to work 2.5 months after having Syd, but I couldn't bring myself to put her into a daycare either. So I worked out a plan with my neighbor who had a 1 year old of her own. She was a SAHM and offered to look after Syd three days a week while I went to work, then I worked from home the other two days. It was a huge compromise that my employer was very gracious allowing me to do. We did this until Syd was 14 months old and then we put her in a daycare with a bunch of other kids. I felt more comfortable doing this since she could fend for herself a bit more. KWIM?? Anyway, just do what's right for you and the babe. The first year is the most precious! (((Hugs)))
