Back To Life, Back To Reality.

Tomorrow (today, actually) I return to workforce after being away from it for four and a half months. Although the loss of my previous job was a difficult blow to take, I am so grateful that I have been able to spend this priceless time with my daughter. I do think it will be harder to leave her this time than the last. We have a deeper bond now. But, I know she will be in good hands; being taken care of by people that I love. My original child care plans fell apart, so now she will spend her weeks between three different people. It will be some adjusting for her but she's a smart cookie so I know she will do just fine.

While I'm going to miss her, I am excited to get back to work. The company I'm going to work for has never had anyone in my position so I will be forging the way, so to speak. I'm excited to implement policies and procedures. Also, it seems like a fast-paced environment and I thrive in that dynamic. So, I'm hopeful it will be a good fit.

Audrey is growing, growing, growing! She freely flips over from her back to tummy now. She tries to lunge forward, but hasn't quite managed to yet. She is babbling a lot now...or rather gurgling a lot. It's so stinking adorable. The teeth mentioned in the previous post still have yet to surface but I have a feeling we are on the verge. I will be sure to share a picture as soon as I can get a good one.

We went trick-or-treating at our church for Halloween. Audrey went as Cinderella and my bestie's little boy, P, went as Prince Charming. The bestie and I have decided to dress them as iconic couples for as long as we can without them pitching a fit. Hopefully as they age picture taking will be a bit easier than it was this year. Ha! Here's the happy couple.

My Cinderella!


  1. They are both adorable! I'm hoping your first day and those that follow with your new job prove to be your "dream job". I also hope being away from your Audrey is not too painful and that she adjusts well. I know you both will be happy to see each other at the end of the day. Hugs and prayers for both of you.

  2. My sweet girls! Love y'all so, so much, and am grateful for your time with Audrey and for your job. God is good.

  3. Wishing you all the best in your new job. I know pie will do just fine, but she will, no doubt, miss you terribly, as you will her.

    The sweetest and cutest little Cinderella and Prince Charming!
