Dinner time giggles

videoIt's been two weeks now that I've been back to work and I think we've got some sort of routine going. It's been all right being back at work but believe me, I'm happy when the day's over. I just can't wait to get home because I've missed Ainsley so much. Anyway, each day now looks a little bit like this: I wake up at the crack of dawn and get ready for work while Andy and Ainsley are still asleep. I go to work. Andy becomes Mr. Mom anywhere between 7 and 8:30 am when Ainsley wakes him up (usually closer to the 7 o'clock side). I come home from work and take over the mommy duties while Andy works for a few hours. After I've fed Ainsley dinner she gets a bath. She likes splashing and playing with Mr. and Mrs. Duck, Ally, Elly, Freddy, Dougy and Hihi (well, that's what I have affectionately named all of her bath toys anyway). When she's ready to get out of the bath then Andy comes to help. We play on the bed for a little while and get her dressed for bed. Then we brush her teeth (of which she has 4 now!!!) and give her a yogurt snack. Between 8 and 8:30 I take her in the bedroom and give her a bottle (we're done breastfeeding now as of the beginning of this week). She then goes to sleep for 11 or 12 hours and we do it all over again. It's very tiring but I love it and wouldn't have it any other way (besides of course not having to work at all)! Anyway, here's another cute video for you to watch. It was actually taken a couple of weeks ago but I kept forgetting to put it on here. Again...enjoy!

Silly Girl

videoI forgot that we could take short video clips with our camera until this week. So I've taken a couple and here's one from yesterday. Ainsley is such a happy baby. This video is just a small dose of what we get to experience all the time. Enjoy!

Hi Ho, Hi Ho......

......It's off to work I go! Today was my last day of maternity leave. Tomorrow morning at 8am I will return to Starbucks, although not to sit and sip a cup of coffee with one hand while feeding my daughter with the other. Nope, it's back to the daily grind (no pun intended). I simply CANNOT believe that I've been off work 7 months and have a 6 month old baby ALREADY! I have to say I've been dreading this day. Being home with Ainsley all the time has been amazing and although I feel blessed to have even had this long before returning to work, I am still really sad to leave her. The great thing is that Andy will be watching her (it could be worse). There are some things that make me a little more excited to go back but I'm pretty sure that, especially tomorrow, I'll be watching the clock for my 8 hours to be up. Anyway, the pictures I included are a bit random but just wanted you to see how the vacuuming gets done around here now. Ainsley's getting so heavy though
that by the time I'm done I'm wishing we had the money for me to go get a full body massage! The other picture is of Ainsley sitting up playing yesterday. Look how cute she is...you'd have a hard time leaving for work too when your other option is kissing those cheeks all day long!
