This is the best way I can describe the past 6 weeks. I was just telling Georgia that I don’t think we’ve ever had so many visitors in all of our years together. We have had meals prepared for us, lunch dates, play dates and have made so many new memories since the arrival of Grace. It’s funny, we all love our friends and family, but you experience a new kind of love when you see the people who are important to you loving your baby. It’s awesome.
G’s BFF’s/our work peeps came to meet baby and brought us lunch – Dion’s (YUM)!
The past 6 weeks have flown by and I can’t believe that I have to go back to work in 24 days… it makes me want to cry just thinking about it. I’m especially nervous about going back to work after surviving a week like this past one. We are pretty sure that baby girl is going through a growth spurt because she is hungry all the time (I’m talking feedings every 2 hours people!) and she has been sleeping like she did during the first 2 weeks we were home. We weren’t sure what was going on early in the week because all of a sudden we had a super cranky baby on our hands. She would start fussing (and she’s not normally a fussy baby) despite the fact that her diaper was clean, she was fed and had napped. Quickly we discovered that she was just starving much more often. Thank God for websites like babycenter.com. This site is often my point of reference for things like this!
Our visitors are definitely helping take my mind off of my return to work. This past week, we had a very special visitor – Grace met her uncle Dean for the first time! Dean, Chris and Debbie came into town for almost a week to meet Gracie. After 5 long weeks of waiting, Dean was so excited to meet his niece! I’m beyond happy that they got to spend so much time cuddling. We had a pretty action packed 5 days that included a trip to Santa Fe, the usual hair dying day, lots of restaurants and we visited Corrales for Georgia’s birthday. Yes, that’s right, G turned the big 3-4! What better way to celebrate than ringing in a new year with brother bear and some great friends?!
I feel like we were just celebrating G’s 33rd birthday and I just know that in the blink of an eye we are going to be celebrating Gracie’s first birthday too! I don’t want to miss anything… maybe that’s why I take so many pictures! :)
And speaking of pictures… here are a few more from the past week ~
