|Yeah! My current favorite photo of Baby B!|
Some other things I have come across in my late night blog reading. Not that I shop at Dolce & Gabbana, but if you do, now is the time to stop. So upsetting. So ignorant. This story about a woman's experience with stillbirth made me well up with emotion and sadness. Sometimes I hold B and just think about how much I love her and how I feel so incredibly fortunate, lucky, blessed, etc. to have her in my life. Oh, and my parents were visiting a few weeks ago and we watched the movie "Labor Day." Have you all seen it? I had no idea before watching it (or I wouldn't have), but the main character has multiple miscarriages and a stillborn baby. It was gut-wrenching to watch.
There are just three weeks remaining in my maternity leave. It's funny - I have always been a hard-charging, goal-oriented career woman. After college and law school I took a job at one of the largest law firms in the world and have always just pushed toward having a "high powered" career (whatever that means). I've dialed it back a bit since we moved to Colorado, but never before have I felt so disinterested in my job. And I LOVE my job, I really do. But I kind of just want to stay home with B. I've been focused for so long on having a baby and here she is! And now I am going to leave her? R and I decided I would go back full time for at least a month and see how it goes before I make any decisions, so that is the plan.
And to cap off this incredibly random post, I've been thinking about removing the anonymity associated with this blog. I'm not planning to shout from the rooftops to friends and family that I have it, but I might just start using full names, etc. We'll see. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter?
Oh, and one more cute two month shot just because. B has caught up in weight and height and is starting to get chubby cheeks and folds in her thighs. I love it.
I've never been so happy.
