2 Months and Facing the Inevitable

Well, it's been a while since I've had a post. I still haven't downloaded the latest round of pictures from my camera, so I have no new pictures to post. Since last I've written, Sadie dressed up as an adorably cute pea pod for Trick or Treat. We took her around my parents' neighborhood and told everyone we had a treat and did not need a treat in return. All of the neighbors were delighted to meet Sadie. And, she was absolutely the cutest baby ever! :)

Sadie is also two months old now! To celebrate her two month birthday, we went to Red Lobster. Sadie then enjoyed her shrimp flavored breast milk! :) Also, her two-month check-up was yesterday. She now weighs in at 13 pounds, 6 ounces and is 24 inches long. The nurse also measured her head as 14 inches in diameter, but that was smaller than at birth, so clearly she measured incorrectly. The doctor said that that particular nurse always seems to have trouble with measuring babies heads. Anyways, Sadie is the 95% for length and 90% for weight. She is such a cute girl! Her hair is starting to come back in. It's definitely going to be dark!

Now the inevitable - I have to go back to work on November 24th. I'm freaking out a little bit. I've left Sadie for about 5 hours, when Adam and I went on a date. But, that's about the longest I've been away from her and I'm not looking forward to being away from her for a longer period of time. I have a feeling I'm going to be a nervous wreck. I'm already feeling terribly guilt-ridden and have moments where I want to burst into tears. In other ways, I am looking forward to returning to a job that I do really like. Hopefully the good and bad moments will balance out and we will both be able to survive this rather difficult transition. I think I would feel a lot better if I knew a bit more about what to expect.

Well, it's time for Sadie to eat. She's currently dancing with Daddy. Daddy is holding her in the baby Bjorn. It's adorable! Take care all!

I too am freaking out about returning to work. You will have to let me know how it goes. We have our 2 month check up on Monday. We'll compare stats then! :) lol

Good luck going back to work! For me, it really wasn't as bad as I built it up to be - hope it's the same for you!

I'm sorry it's stressing you out so much. She's such a great baby, she'll do well.

Thinking about you and praying for you this weekend.
