i couldn't pick just one.
this little lady has just 3 days (hopefully less depending on charlie's schedule) of daycare left until she'll be home with us full-time. i know it's going to be crazy juggling work and taking care of a baby, but after doing it for over two months at least i know what to expect. i feel so lucky to work for a company that's willing to be beyond flexible with my schedule. i'm not sure how long this is going to work out for but we're just going to take it one day at a time or just 'ride the wave' as i told charlie tonight. i'm looking forward to more time with her but mostly i'm looking forward to her getting the care and attention that she deserves right now. the fact that i get to keep my job is a much appreciated bonus.
for as much as we have going on in our lives right now with a new-ish baby, changes for me at work, and buying a home i really feel so content with where our lives are right now. we've been very blessed with supportive family, jobs, etc and i don't want to forget how lucky we are to have the opportunities we have. i feel very fortunate that both of us are able to spend as much time together and with avery as we do. and there are so many times during the day that i stop and think about just how right things feel right now. we've had to make some hard decisions but i can honestly say that once i made the decision to pull avery out of daycare, i felt nothing but relief. it was a situation i never felt good about and i'm very grateful we were able to make the decision we did. i'm not sure how long this situation is going to work out for but for now i am grateful for it each and every day.
