Getting it done

Well, we stopped breast feeding. I'm not totally happy about it, but I do have more time to get things done. I also have more energy so I actually can get things done. It's amazing how draining breast feeding is on the body. I miss it. I really do. I miss that closeness to my baby. I wish so badly that it could have gone well for us and I could have nursed until we were both really ready to stop. was not meant to be.

Now that I can finally focus on life apart from my baby, I'm driving myself crazy trying to get caught up. I've got a stack of work to be done at the office that is hard to fathom and at home I have a bedroom and a closet that are out of control. The worst thing is that I still have thank you notes to write. I've given myself a deadline of the end of May to get caught up. I think that if I can do that I will enjoy life so much more. I feel as if I have a very dark cloud over my head. I would also like to go spend a week with my parents and I don't feel like I can do that until I get some of these projects out of the way.

Work, work, work. I've got to be a busy bee.

The Peanut continues to thrive. She's about 14 lbs. That's more than triple her birth weight!!! She'll be 7 mos on Sat. That's so hard to believe. She's so much fun. She's got a great little personality and a sense of humor that is way more developed than I would expect from a 7 mo old. We're having a blast with her now.


  1. Hope the transition into this new phase will go well!

  3. It only gets better!

    The work/parenting balance is a tough one ... I struggle with that, too. Feels like I can never get it all under control. Sometimes I second-guess wanting another ... but when you fall hard for your first, it's hard not to want to bring more life into the world.

    Stopping by from ICLW ... #149. Sorry to have removed the other ... I didn't think it would stick!

  4. My little Peanut is also almost 7 months, and I agree, their personalities just start to shine at this point! I'm dreading weaning her, but it seems like you have the right attitude to focus on all of the other things you can do. Enjoy your little one, and happy ICLW!

  5. Hope you're enjoying motherhood.

    Happy ICLW!!
