Snuggle Time

I have been such a slacker with posting! But Isabella is a little snuggler and doesn't give me much of a moment to wrote a long post. In fact, she's snuggling with me right now, but somehow, I have managed to position her in a way that both of my hands are free. 

So it's been ten weeks (as of yesterday) since Isabella entered this world and forever changed my life. My heart is still overflowing with emotions. The love I have for her is unexplainable. I knew love my whole life. My mother's love for me was and is one of the greatest things. I knew love when I met my husband. But nothing prepares your heart for the amount of love you will feel when you have a child. She has changed my life, changed my future, changed my marriage (in the best way possible, of course!). I just love Isabella beyond words, beyond expressions, and beyond anything I could even try to explain. 

We've enjoyed our time at home bonding. She loves to cuddle and snuggle and I love to cuddle and snuggle with her. Sadly, I have to return to work soon. I am excited to return to my classroom. I do miss my students and my passion for teaching. But a part of my heart will be breaking when I can't spend my days with my precious little one. These past two months have been one of the most amazing times of my life. We've bonded so much and I am so thrilled that I had that time with her. My parents will start watching her Tuesday while I make the hard transition from being a temporary stay at home Mom back to being a teacher. Everything will be all new now, though. Teacher by day, Mom 24 hours a day. It will be an adventure, to say the very least! Bring on the adventure, I need to get used to life continuing, even if I want to freeze time.

  1. I too will be starting back to work as a teacher in a few months. I was so lucky to take all my FMLA plus the summer so Isa will almost be 6 months when I go back. At first I thought it would be horrible and I'd find nothing good about going back. Now I'm starting to think I will be ready. I hope your transition back is okay. You might want to pick up The Milk Memos. I've been reading it and it makes me feel better about going back. Good luck!
