I swear the baby remembers his birth when he is bathing.....he's always been SOOO cute in the bathtub. So relaxed. Now he coos and talks to me...and tonight he LAUGHED! SO sweet! (he was born in a bathtub.
I love the big belly laughs they have! Nora had a really hardcore belly laugh last night after her bath while I was drying her off. OMG it was the CUTEST thing evar! It was the first time she did that and I was just in awe!
So yeah, being back at work stinks. I'm quitting for a few reasons. To be home with Nora, of course, is #1. In 2006/07 I actually went back to school and got my esthetics license so that I could do makeup or work in a spa. That's really what I want my career to be in. I was going to quit my job and pursue that, but then we decided to have a baby. So I kept my office job with it's fabulous maternity leave (16 weeks full pay) but I had to return to work in order to qualify. I'm not happy where I am b/c I'm pushing papers and sitting at a desk when I'd rather being elbow deep in facial creams and sugar scrubs! I'm going to probably work part time once I leave my company, either for a spa or, if I can get it, a job at a dermatologist's office.
We've decided (99% sure) to name our new kitty Tayla. I hope to get a picture of her soon, she is so gorgeous! She's just being very shy and hiding behind couches and things right now. She and Cosette aren't really getting along, but hopefully soon they will warm up to each other. We only got another cat so that Cosette wouldn't be lonely...so hopefully the plan doesn't completely backfire.
Alright, DH is running out to the store so I've got to go snuggle Nora. I swear, I feel like I've got no time with her. It's already 7 pm! Ugh, SUCKS being away from her all day!!!
