I almost didn't post this picture, but then I thought "What the heck?"

Carly never stays put when she is in her crib or on her play mat. She turns, flips and rotates. I took some pictures of her when she got her self hung up in her play "gym". I guess she was bored just looking at the same stuff she's been looking at for days now because she thought this was pretty fun.

She was happy, just hanging out in her boppy seat, sucking her pacifier and moving her hands and feet like she does any time she is awake. Then she did. She grabbed the pacifier and accidentally yanked it from her mouth. She. was. mad. So she threw her arms about in anger and frustration, sometimes bringing the pacifier to her mouth, which only further frustrated her.
One day she will figure out that is the one doing it.
She tried to put it back in her mouth.
My co-worker, Kim, and her daughter check my blog looking for pictures of Carly in her funny sleeping positions. This picture is for you, Kim and Emily.

Mother's Day/My 29th (really) birthday was fantastic. The whole weekend was fabulous, actually. We spent Saturday with my family and Sunday with Freddy's. It was laid-back and casual, just the way I wanted it.
Freddy, Carly and Lola gave me lots of gifts that all fit in to a "Pampering" (not Pampers) theme. I can't wait to pamper myself!
Oh, and I cut my hair. Some days I like it and some days I still miss my long hair. But I LOVE that blow-drying it takes half the time.
I haven't blogged in a while, and yet I don't feel like I have anything interesting to blog about.
Wait. I take that back. I just thought of something. This past Tuesday I went back to work. Part Time. I worked half a day on Tuesday and Thursday. Everyone at worked asked me if it was hard to leave Carly. Since I knew it was only for a few hours and she was with my parents, it wasn't bad.
I set up my maternity leave to allow me to ease back in to work rather than jump back in to a 40 hour week. Until June 1st, anyway, when I go back to my regular schedule. I am so smart!
And since this is what you all want to see anyway...here are some new pictures of Carly.
Did I mention that she has been sleeping through the night since she was 6 weeks and one day old?! Did I also mention that she is still tired when we wake her up at 6:30 for her first feeding so we have been putting her to bed earlier and earlier? Tonight we try for 11 hours! What a sweet baby she is letting us have our sleep. WE LOVE HER!

With only 4 days until my 29th birthday, I am beginning to feel anxious. No, not about inching toward...pause....thirty, but about completing my Thirty By Thirty List.
While out on Maternity Leave, I checked one more item off my list - watch every episode of Sex and the City in order and the movie. Am I a bad mom because I watched it every time I fed Carly? Thank goodness she won't be able to remember what she heard!
It took me a few episodes - the entire first season, actually - to get in to it. Once I did, though, I was addicted. The fashion was a little over the top for me most of the time and there were some pretty vulgar scenes, but I guess that makes me a "Charlotte".
