Baby O. in Photos (volume 4)

Well, my dear friends, I survived my first day back at work. My students and coworkers were happy to have me back. It felt pretty good to successfully complete a work day. However, I will say that it was rough leaving her yesterday morning. Katie and I had a little cry together.

Trying hard to keep it together

But apparently my little girl was good yesterday (despite a poop explosion…ha)! I think I was more worried about how she would behave away from me than anything else. I hoped at the end of the day my best friend would still want to be my best friend. Thank goodness she was a great baby! She even had fun playing with the Toddler.

Let’s hope she keeps this up! In the meantime, let’s take a look at some of my last couple of days of maternity leave.
Gotta love those spiky hairs in the back – she looks like a mad scientist
She loves to play airplane

I dare you to keep a straight face. My mom went to Eastern Europe and picked her up some “cultural” clothing. Greg woke me up and he was holding her and my poor daughter was wearing this. I happen to think the gloves are perhaps the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen.

Happy Friday, friends!
I’ve got a whole week off for Spring Break (I told you, baby steps) and it’s back into transitioning to the work routine.

    She looks so much older already! That newborn phase is so short! She looks so happy, we should have a playdate in the summer when you are off! Ps in the pic with the creepy gloves I kind of love the dress from Europe hahaha

    So did Baby O return the favor for the Toddler pooping all over you years ago? 🙂 And I love how Greg dressed Kennedy because I know exactly what I have to look forward to. Too funny!

    Oh she is SOOOO precious! I can imagine how hard it was to leave her! At least you have an amazing job that surrounds you with people that love you 🙂 And you have your sweet baby girl to be excited to go home to!

    she’s just getting cuter by the day! I’m glad you survived your first day back!! It’s a good thing you do something you love, because if you had to go back to something you hated that would be a nightmare!!
