Life as Mommy

by - June 12, 2015

So earlier this week I set a goal to write more than one blog post this week. Easier said than done. We've survived two weeks of me going back to work and the baby going to daycare. We're exhausted (mostly me), but we've survived.

Here are some things I've learned this week:

1. Five minutes makes a huge difference in the morning.

2. Setting a 6:00 a.m. alarm is the only way I'll make it in the shower at 6:30 a.m.

3. It's harder to leave Alexis at daycare when she's awake. Especially if she's smiling at me.

4. Always have a pair of flat shoes in the car. Carrying a carrier in heels is much harder at the end of the day than at the beginning.

5. The baby will always get more sleep than me. Why? Because there's always something else to do after I put her to bed before I can lay down.

In the past month, Alexis has grown a lot. She's gained almost 4 pounds and grown 2 1/2 inches. She can hold her head up, is really close to rolling over and doing her darndest to start crawling. She's "talking" a lot more and smiles whenever Chris or I talk to her. She likes bath time and laying on her tummy and is starting to hold onto things now. When you hear parents talk about how fast their children grow up, they're not lying!
