Back to work

Hey everyone!!! Sorry I dont get to update often. I used to think after the baby Im still going to update everyday, then it went to once a week, now its like once a month! LoL. Im trying my hardest. I still try to stay up to date with all thats going on with you guys but sometimes I just dont have time to post. I started back to work yesterday. For the last few weeks I've been dreading it sooooo much. But it went WAY better than I thought it was going to. I love being back at work around my friends and actually having some adult interaction, but on the other hand I miss my little man SOOOOO much. I wish I could be a stay at home mommy but its just not possible for me right now. I only cried for a few mins when I dropped him off yesterday and today I didnt cry at all. YAY! Hes with my mom so I know hes in good hands. I think thats why its not as hard. Im just worried I'll miss everything....him rolling over for the first time, crawling, walking, all the milestones. I hope I dont! Well since the last time I updated we were told Brayden had colic! Fun FUN!! He was crying ALL day, he always had a bellyache, he was only sleeping for 2 at the most 3 hours. They changed his formula again this time to similac sensitive its for fussiness and gas and hes a completely different baby. Hes happy all the time, he doesnt cry unless hes sleeping or hungry, and at night time hes now sleeping between 5 and 7 hours!!!! Right in time for me to go back to work! LoL. Such a good baby. Hes now talking all the time (well cooing lol), he has found his hands, he tries to grab things now, he smiles, laughs. Sometimes he'll be sleeping and he'll laugh so hard he wakes himself up. LoL. Hes getting so hard to hold not only because he wiggles so much but because hes getting so heavy. He was sleeping on the couch a week or so ago and I walked out of the room and I heard a noise I ran back in the livingroom and he wiggled himself right off the couch. He landed head first in a bag of cordless phones. I cried worse than he did he only cried for 1 min I cried for like 10 and I was worried the rest of the night. I felt like such a bad mommy. Hes fine though! We finally got our settlement! We've been waiting for 3 years. It came 2 days before I had to come back to work. After I paid everything off we are left with hardly any money but thats fine with me! We elimated a very large credit card, our computer loans, paid our other credit cards down to 2000.00 and we got all our bills paid till july, plus we got me a used car. Well I better go. Miss you guys! Hugs Monica.

Glad going back to work wasn\'t too bad. Sounds like you\'re a great mommy!!! You can always ask your mom not to tell you about the milestones if she sees them first. Our infant teachers at my childcare center adopted that rule, and everyone\'s happy!!! I don\'t think many parents even knew that we did that. But missing those things is one of the hardest things about being a working mom. Take care hun!

Hey girlie...glad your doing well! Kayla is only 18 days old and have NO time to get on here much either...I haven\'t even gotten out any pictures via e-mail yet! I\'m so glad you wrote about the fomula! My baby barely cried the first week...but she won\'t breast feed so I really don\'t pump any more leaving her w/Enfmil formula? and boy now she has a constant stomach ache!!!!!!! HELP ME!!LOL I have to hold her constantly EVERY minute shes in my arms or I\'m laying by her (it\'s the only way she\'ll sleep) So if this continues a couple more days I think I\'ll change formulas to yours!?! Let me know if you have any advise for this colic!
Glad you got your settlement!! Take Care.....HUGS

I went back to work after my first two. It\'s hard but my Mom watched them too and it made it much easier knowing they were in great hands. You are not a bad Mommy we\'re all probably done something similar. Now you know that you can\'t leave him alone for a minute on the couch. Sorry about the Colic it\'s great that they make formulas to help with that now when I had my first son the only option was Isomil which didn\'t really help. Amazing the changes in the formula market in 7 years. Oxygen is going ok and yes the monitor drives me a little batty. I think that\'s part of the reason I wanted something and it has helped even after only two days. Are you still on meds??
