Parting is such sweet sorrow...!

Well, I have to go back to work tomorrow. SUCK! Sierra is just 9 weeks old and the thought of sitting in an office all day long while she gets to stay home and play without me is just SO unfair! I mean seriously, I haven't had a spring break since college and these last 2 months have been so much fun! I get to sleep in, watch Regis & Kelly, go shopping, work out, make dinner for the family, play at my parents house when we want to, and best of all...not go to work. It's been fantastic.

Sierra is such a wonderful baby! She was sleeping through the night at 6 weeks and the 3 weeks before that I was getting up only once in the middle of the night to feed the little bug. She's perfect. Our whole Babywise technique worked like a charm and Joe, Sierra and I are very happy. She's so happy all the time, except when nap time is nigh, and she started smiling which makes her SO MUCH FUN!

But back to this back to work thing...hopefully everything will work out going back. While I am a bit unhappy, not excited, depressed about it, hating life I must admit that I am sort of looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, and making money again. Who knew a bank account could go from overflowing to bone dry. =) Oh well. There is alot to be done before the end of the year. Deals to make and contracts to sign. I'm trying stay positive and hey, if I hate it, I can always quit and work for my dada. Then I could be at home with Sierra all the time. I just don't want to miss anything, ya know. What if she crawls without me or talks without me, rolls over, or sits up for the first time without me. =( I just...I don't want to miss it! Look how big she has gotten! She's going do all her growing up while I'm at work.

Wow! I can't beleive she is already 9 weeks-what a doll. Sorry you have to go back to work-that's how I feel going to school every day. Needless to say it sucks and Jessica doesn't know how lucky she is to stay at home with Nixon all day!

And BTW-Jessica was referring to a different Andrea and Nate. That was before me and her met...So even longer ago then you thought.

Don't stop blogging now that you are headed back to work! You rarely do it already-and need to do it more! Sometimes I feel like it is our only connection with our friends outside of Tuscaloosa.
