Back To Work & The Picture People!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Well, it's official...I have actually survived my first two days back to work. A lot of people have been asking me how it felt and it really was bittersweet. Although I dearly missed my Tiny Dancer and could barely pull myself out the door on Monday morning, it was kind of nice to get back into the real world and get back to some more adult interaction. Although I LOVE talking to Tiny every day, all day over the past 8 Weeks, she doesn't exactly respond much! I had a really warm welcome back at work and just loved to have people Ooh and Ahh over pictures of Emma. She is already all over my desk and work computer as my background, etc. Ha! I loved walking in the door both days and just rushing to get her in my arms!

It's been a while since I had updated the blog so I forget really where I left off and what I have and haven't talked if I repeat something, sorry!

I am really excited that Emma Baptism is coming up, on Sunday, September 13th and she will be Baptized in the same church where Wes and I were married. I never thought I would get so emotional over it, but when we met with the church official when signing her up, we talked a lot about what a Baptism truly meant and I completely started to tear up!! I am really looking forward to that day and am thrilled that Emma's Aunt Mary and Uncle Brian will be her Godparents. They are going to be (more like they already are) fantastic role models for Emma and their three amazing children are a testament to that!

We had a great weekend last weekend which Emma and I kicked off by going to my Cousin Kim's baby shower (check out the link to her Baby blog on the right of our blog). Emma and I had a great time and were thrilled to celebrate Kim and Matt's new little tadpole with them! Kim got some fantastic gifts and definitely has that pregnancy glow about her! Emma also got to meet her second cousin (at least we think she is Emma's second cousin haha) Kaelyn! Kayelyn is my Cousin Kristin's daughter who is almost 8 months old already and is completely adorable! She was rolling around the shower and loving being a part of the party!

Last week we surprised Daddy with a few professional pictures that we had taken at The Picture People in the mall. It was a spur of the moment thing, mainly because Mommy found some coupons! We got a couple of prints, not too many because I figured we would be getting 6 Month pictures done as well. Tiny handled everything pretty well...we went through three changes of clothes (if you count being naked for one a change haha) and were just about to get some pictures in her dress for her Baptism when she decided she had enough! So here is what we came out with...I had to take pictures of the prints we got since getting the CD with digital pictures was $250! I don't think so!

  1. Aw! Emma is adorable. You can see that she is handling the pictures pretty well, until the end.

    Glad your handling things pretty well with being back to work.
