Back to Work

After seven months of being home with Hunter, it's time for me to go back to work. 
I start my new job on Monday, my twenty-eighth birthday!

First time in a shopping cart last weekend
During my maternity leave I knew I wanted to go back to work and started getting the itch to return to the office when he was four months old. At that time I did go back to work for a couple of weeks (it felt good to get dressed up and do my hair/make-up!) only to put my notice in shortly after. Since then I have developed a routine as a stay at home mom and have enjoyed being home with Hunter. His personality started shining through around four months and since then it seems like he is doing something new every day. Sometimes I am amazed at how much love I have for him!

Once I get my new routine down I have no doubt I will enjoy my role as a working mom, but for now the transition feels bitter-sweet.
I am happy that Hunter has been able to go to daycare part-time for the last two weeks. He immediately got sick with a cough/cold from the daycare germs. We are thankful that I am still home so we neither of us have to take sick leave from work! His daycare provider is so nice and he seems to love it there. 

Battling the sickies
Onto my next adventure!
