Daisy is Seven Weeks, and back to school

I survived my first week back at work.  I'd forgotten how much extra stuff there is in a classroom to get done every day.  I miss my Title 1!!!  My class is actually really good, just very talkative.  Plus the other 3rd grade teachers are super helpful.  I only cried Monday on my way to work and just a bit before school got started.  I blame that on a couple sweet teachers that came in and asked how I was and said they were praying for me.  They were too nice.. the nerve!

Daisy was at my mom's Monday and Tuesday.  Then she goes to a babysitter the rest of the week.  The babysitter is great, but she has to go to a nearby school to pick up a couple kids.  She apparently screamed all the way there and back all 3 days.  I'm not sure what to do about that.  I think the problem is that her natural schedule is to take a really good long afternoon nap, which is hard when you're getting carted here n there.  Hopefully she'll get used to the new routine, or I'd be really tempted to start looking for other options.  I'm just pretty sure we won't find anywhere as affordable.  Bleck  Wish I didn't have to even think about all that.

Daisy at 7 weeks
I think she's getting bigger.  We're going to have to up her bottle, because 4 oz. doesn't seem to be as satisfying anymore.  When you take the bottle away she wails.  She's starting to smile more at people and make eye contact when she's really awake.  If she's the least bit tired she zones out completely.  She's also making all sorts of noises.  I think she is starting to get more arm control.  She folds her hands while having a bottle, or she'll hold your finger.  I love that!!  Anyway that's Daisy this week.
I hate how little I got to see her this week.  We get home about 5 or 5:30, then hang out just a bit and she's in bed by 8 or 9.  There's usually a nap in there as well (which is what she's doing now).  I keep telling myself this is just the season we're in.  It'll get better as she stays awake longer, then sleeps better at night.  Plus there's always summer right? :)

Hope y'all had a great week, and enjoy your weekend.  I know I will!  I'm not going anywhere unless I have to, maybe church... we'll see.

I'm glad your survived your first week back at work! Daisy is just too cute!

She will start to be awake more during the day. Hopefully she still takes good naps though. My son takes 1 good nap a day then catnaps the rest of the day and gets overtired no matter what I do :P
