I'm Back!! Well, for today anyway. I can't believe how hard it is to sit down and write even though I'm home from work. I have my official return to work date: May 16th. I miss work and all the people there, but I am so NOT ready to leave little miss Olive.
I have so much to update on... I'm not really even sure where to start. How about with this:

I know she looks so cute and sweet here, but let me tell you... this kid has an amazing set of lungs and she chooses to use them ALL.NIGHT.LONG. I don't mind too much, but I'm exhausted. Natalee slept through the night at 3 weeks... I would give anything for that right now. I am sure it was because she was formula fed and Olive is breastfed.
That puppy is also keeping me busy... she is a pretty good little dog, but she is still a puppy and just as wild as you can imagine.
Being cute has definitely saved her life on a few occasions. I have very little patience when I'm sleep deprived.

OK... I'm leaving at this today. I'll post all my birth photos soon. They are on Facebook, but if you didn't see them there, you'll get to see them here. They are amazing, and also taken by McCloud Photography.
I'll also let you know about a little medical scare we had Olive and update you on my progress with breastfeeding (it's working this time!). Oh, and tell you about Natalee's latest adventures.
I miss you all so much... not having contact with my bloggy buddies is making me sad:-(

I was just thinking about you today. I'm glad you posted this update. The first two months are tough. The world gets turned upside down for a while, but I hope you're enjoying it despite the sleepless nights.

She's so cute and I love that hat!

I miss you too! And I'm sad for you and your itty-bitty American maternity leave. Want to hear about my 12-month partially-paid mat leave? Didn't think so.
I hope the medical scare wasn't too horrible...
PS - Will follow up with bum pictures soon. :)
