Quick Recap: First Day Back at Work

by jessicaturner on August 16, 2011

Elias and Adeline

Yesterday went great. YAY!

Sweet Adeline

Adeline took three bottles from Matthew with little trouble. She didn’t nap much at all, but she did sleep through the night!

My Elias

Elias had fun, despite Daddy being a bit preoccupied with the girl. When I got home, I gave him some extra attention (we did a painting project after dinner).

I’m so thankful my kids have such a great Daddy! (He even took time to do this mini photo shoot with them!)

Work went well for me. I have a project list that is a mile long, but I was able to break for pumping three times and pumped the exact amount of milk that Adeline drank during the day!

I came home though with a pretty big headache, so went to bed as soon as the kids did. I will get PL Tuesday up a little later today.

Thank you for all the prayers yesterday. They definitely made a difference. Praying today goes just as well.

Saw these photos last night on Matthew’s FB post…he said things went well! That is wonderful. What a great experience for him too!! Prayers continue for you both for a good day today as well! And good for you that you took the time to pump. We recently moved and my girl is almost 8 months…but the stress of that and then my starting to work from home and getting that arranged – I didn’t take the time away I needed to and so now had to stop. Anyways – I applaud you!! Happy Tuesday!
Blessings, Kristin

My heart is singing because you had such an awesome day! Praise the Lord! Our youngest started a traditional daycare yesterday and he had an equally good day! Praying today goes well. I’m blessed to “know” you!

Adeline is so precious. Elias is a doll.
So glad yesterday went well.
I thought about & prayed for you throughout the day.
Praying that today goes just as well.

You re doing amazing. I am a SAHM and know how tough it is being home all day with the kids. Luckily all the good moments in the day almost always outweigh the tough ones. Adeline has such dark eyes! Amazing. My daughters eyes didn’t change until she was about 6 months and my sons stayed blue so far, so Adeline’s are quite striking!
Keep upp the good work and take it all one day at a time!

I just wanted to thank you for continuing to rave about Paper Coterie – I had technical issues with their site for months and had nearly given up until you posted about them again recently. I was finally able to get technical help – they had to reset my account somehow – and I was finally able to make some things!
I got a journal for myself and for my mom – she LOVES it. It has a picture of my daughter on it and they were just here for B’s third birthday and Brooklyn wanted to draw in it which my mom though was the perfect use. And wouldn’t you know Brooklyn proceeded to draw an ‘F’ say “It’s an F!” followed by an o and r – Letters for the first time in Gramma’s journal – doesn’t get much better;)
I also got one of the “3” posters – I absolutely love it and so does Brooklyn . She told me where she wanted it hung up in her room:)
I’m working on an ABC book now!
Anyway thanks for encouraging me to keep on trying because their products are so unique and fun and beautiful!
