First Day Back at Work

Today was a BIG DAY!
My first day back at work, Shelby's first full day of nursery school, Buddy's first day home alone.
Everything went fabulous but I am tired as was Shelby.
Giving that Shelby started school on Monday, I wasn't emotional today when dropping her off but she was on my mind all day long.
I couldn't wait to pick her up!
Speaking of tired.
She was VERY tired too.
She was there longer today. 
7am to 5pm.
She was in bed snoozing by 7:15pm.
Another 'first day' picture for Mommy and Shelby.
As for my first day back?
I had forgotten how much I like my job and especially the people I work with.
It really felt great to be back in the mix of things.
I already have several video shoots and other projects lined up for this week and the rest of the month.
Can't wait!
(and, no I'm not just patronizing because I know people at work read this blog. I really am excited.)
The only really big change is that despite both working in Uptown Charlotte Brad and I have decided to commute separate.
He will take Shelby to school and I will pick her up.
When picking her up today I got to see one of the art projects they did this week.
And, how they decorated her crib with the pictures we gave them.
The idea is that when she wakes up she sees the faces of family.
Now, if only she would sleep!
Sounds like she doesn't like naps at school either, just like she didn't at home.
No worries though!
She sleeps 12-hours at night.

Girlfriend was happy as can be when we got home.
Just check out this smile!
And, this one!
In fact, her daily note said that she LOVES to smile.
Don't you know it!
I could literally eat.her.up!!!!

So happy to hear you loved getting back to work, even though I know you certainly missed that sweet little girl every moment. She did look so happy when she got home...she's getting so big! As she gets older, she'll love being around so many kids in daycare. She'll have fun. A big congrats for getting through a hard first step. :)

It must be easy when you love your job and work with fun people! Thats great! Thats cute with your pics on her crib. Maybe school was too exciting and new to sleep!

She is such a sweet potato! Glad this first week went well!! :)

Sara said...

Love her sweet smile! I'm laughing that Brad will take her to school. Trey always takes the boys to school too and I pick up. We get the good part! They're so excited to see you when you pick them up!! The husbands have the bad part where they have to drop them off and hear them scream. Oh...don't you worry....she'll go through that phase. :) But you get to be the hero that picks her up. HA!! Love it.

love her! Glad everything went so great. Seriously, she is so cute. She has the perfect round little head and those big eyes.

I think she favors Brad.

She is so freaking cute! Glad all went well!

Monica said...

I'm so glad you both had a wonderful day! You can hang her little art projects up at work. That's what I do with Lyla's. Being a mom is SO MUCH FUN!

Mandy said...

Yay, so glad you had such a great day! Shelby is adorable, her little personality shows in the pics!
