So Blake is 3 months old tomorrow and has been in daycare for a week tomorrow, and I have been down in the dumps for 1 week tomorrow. I knew it would be hard to leave her precious little face and go back to work, but I figured that after a couple of days I would start transitioning back into my old role and be happy for the adult interaction and work responsibilities. BOY WAS I WRONG!
I seriously never pictured myself being a stay at home mom until Blake arrived. Once I met her I instantly changed my entire perspective and feeling on staying home. Going back to work has been the hardest thing I've ever had to do and all I do all day while at work is think, "I hope they are taking care of her, I hope they are loving her, I hope that she knows we love her since we're not there, I hope she doesn't forget us, and most of all, I hope I don't miss any of her firsts." It would probably make things easier if I was in a career that I loved, but much like most of the world out there - it's just a job and nothing more.

Enough about the sob story though - let's talk about firsts.....this past Saturday Blake had 2 major accomplishments: 1) she giggled out loud
it was the most adorable, happy sound in the world. I only wish I could get her to giggle all day everyday.
2) She rolled over from her tummy to her back. Now, I have to preface this with the fact that I think it was a fluke, but little chick just rolled over like it was easy as pie. She hasn't done it since, but just in case you think I'm lying Trimble was here and witnessed the entire thing. As you can see Saturday was a really big day for us! Also, as you can see - our lives have changed exponentially - who would have thought a year ago that I would be blogging about how excited we were to see a kid roll over! haha Actually who would have thought a year ago that I would be blogging period or have a child!

I love that I can see her change everyday and develop personality and learn new things. It seriously is one of the best things in the world!!!

Please continue to pray that I get used to her being in daycare and stop crying everyday over not being with her.

Here is Blake's 3 month picture. She is getting so big!


  1. Your sweet baby girl is so cute! I know we don't know each other well, but I saw your post on FB. Being a mommy is the best thing in the entire world. Blogging is a great way to document it all. I've been doing it for Chloe since she was born and I'm going to have a book made soon. Good luck with the job situation. I hear it gets better!

  2. I didn't know you guys had a blog! It's such a great way to document Blake as she grows up. I'm looking forward to keeping up with your sweet little family this way. I can't believe your little one is already 3 months old! She is precious.
