Headed back to work...

As I expected, maternity leave just flew by. Life as a mother of two, under the age of two, is crazy, chaotic and beautiful, thus making life just whip past you at 100 mph. I feel like the 8 weeks of isolation with just my girls accomplished nothing of significance to anyone except those precious beauties who hopefully soaked up the memory making moments that encompassed our time together. Other than that, nothing was done.
  • I was not able to get Lilia on a consistent schedule so it could match Mia's more closely
  • As of a week ago I was not able to loose any more weight from my one week postpartum appointment
  • I did not get all the organizing, cleaning and decorating done that I had hoped too
  • I did not scrapbook, memory record, take many pictures or blog

There just didn't seem to be time for anything else other than just doing life together. So, how do I plan on going back to another full time job? Today it seems impossible as I frantically try to arrange babysitter information, schedules, work clothes that will actually fit me right now, and gather together a brain that will actually be ready for the "real" world.

I realize in just a few weeks it will be old hat and I will be back to juggling all the different balls and handling each with ease, but right now the weight of the uncertain and the fear of adjustment weighs heavy. Lord, please help me.

On a brighter note...I will have Internet so I should be able to blog more often :)

Family Pictures

Within a few weeks after Lilia was born, we were blessed to have Photography by Cristy take pictures of our new precious baby and our family. There are so many things I adore about Cristy. Her beautiful spirit makes every session a joy as she relates in life and all its beauties. Not too mention that her artistic eye is both breathtaking and real as she captures all the joy within the split seconds of the day. Check out her website for the moments that make your life beautiful.

Here are a few pictures of our family in action. Try and adore them as much as I do :)
