First things first--tomorrow is my last day of being a working mom! I am so excited. Although I have loved my job (most of the time) the past four years, I have just not been excited about it since I came back from maternity leave. The company was so great to let me work part time, but I was still SO exhausted. Getting up at 5:30 is just not for me. I know that there will be some days that I will miss the people at the office, but I know that I am going to LOVE being at home with my baby girl. The only thing that makes me sad about quitting my job is taking Neely out of daycare. I know, it sounds crazy. But she loves it! I really do give daycare a lot of credit for her being such a happy baby.
Neely's 7 Month Portrait
Neely is 8 months old now. I can't believe it. She's been very busy learning new things--she is babbling like crazy, scooting around on her behind, standing holding on to the furniture, and just started waving. Of course, I think she is just crazy cute.
Brad started a new job. Still a supplier for Wal-Mart, but a small company that is based out of Colorado. So far it seems like a really great job with one exception. The company is very environmentally conscious, so Brad has been trying to incorporate this into our household. One problem--I don't believe in recycling. Too much stinkin trouble. Maybe I'll give in soon, but it's been fun listening to him explain over and over again how I can't "choose" to not believe in recycling.
Stay tuned for more updates. Now that I'm going to be staying at home, I plan on doing lots more blogging.
