I’m Back From Maternity Leave!

Did you miss me? I missed you!
It’s weird how six weeks can feel long and short at the same time. I feel like I’ve been gone from work forever, but six weeks is not long enough to spend time with my daughter.
Since bringing Lilly home, she has slept most of the days. The first two weeks, she slept for 2-3 hours at a time and then would get hungry. That made for a lot of sleepless nights. I don’t know why I thought I would be the exception to the no sleeping part of parenthood, but I’m definitely not.
Now she is sleeping 4 hours straight before getting hungry. She is a lot more alert and vocal now, which is fun for mom and dad. I love seeing her little personality grow.
Talk about growing, she weighed 5 pounds 8.5 oz when we left the hospital. Now at 8 weeks old, she is over 9 pounds! She is out of her preemie clothes and into newborn jammies!
