Blushing OOTD

Thank you so much for all the suggestions and support on yesterday's post about Daycare Needs. We packed everything up and Matt, Ellie, and I all went together there yesterday so we could meet the other little girls that will be there and go over Ellie's "routine". The two little girls that will be there were so adorable and just warmed right up to "baby Owie" (that's how it sounds when they say Ellie, and they always say "baby" before her name, just like our niece!). I'm so happy that we have found such a great place where I know Ellie will be taken care of. On our way out we met one of the mothers in the street and she couldn't say enough of how well the daycare is, how her daughter just loves it there, and how sweet the woman who runs it is. She truly is, I just adore her and I'm thrilled to find someone so loving and nurturing to watch over our little one while we're at away at work. Eleanor starts there next Monday and Matt will be with her today through Friday.

Today will be my first day back and I'm happy that I was able to come back mid-week. I think it will help be an easier transition since the weekend will be so close and I'll have two whole uninterrupted days to love and cuddle Ellie. Since Matt is with her, I'll be getting lots of pictures and videos which will help me get through my withdrawals. Friday and last night I cried several ugly cries just thinking about missing her. It breaks my heart having to leave her, but it's what is best for our family at this time. Maybe I'll eventually be able to stay home with her (which is our goal in a few years), but until then I'll have to just ugly cry it in the shower. I'm hoping it will get easier as the days go by, although I'm preparing myself to cry every Monday for the next several months.

This past Monday, Matt and I had our very first date night since Ellie's birth. We were so excited to have some time alone and eat dinner together. Our plan was to go to the sushi restaurant we went to the night before Ellie's birth since I didn't get to have any of the sashimi or certain rolls. Afterwards we planned on going to a movie, but after dinner we missed Eleanor so much we raced home to pick her up. Instead of the movies, we got Slurpees instead as a little treat on our way back.

You look fantastic! I love that top. I hope you are doing OK today! You will always hate leaving her but somehow it really does get easier. I'll be thinking of you today!

Unless you count a trip to the grocery store within the first couple of days she was born, we didn't have a date night until our baby was 3 months. Not necessarily because we couldn't leave her (she's baby #2, which makes it easier) but because we didn't have anyone to watch her! We can only go out when my parents come up to visit. Now that she's not fussy with reflux, we might be able to leave the kids with friends (though it's harder to ask them to watch 2 rather than one). Enjoy your time together!

You look SO CUTE in that outfit!! :) Hot mama alert!

I'm so proud of how well you're handling this! I'm sure that talking to the mom who uses that daycare helped a lot! I have a feeling that Ellie is in great hands! :)

Hope your doing ok today at work. Hopefully your hubby is sending lots of pictures and videos to make it a little more bearable. At least you can feel better about the wonderful daycare you've found for your sweet girl, it will all work out. Loving that blush top on you!

Love that Kiki la Rue top!! You are looking great! =)
Everytime my husband and I have gotten to have a date night since Connor was born we always have intentions of going to a movie or just staying out longer but after dinner we always decide to go home because we miss him so much! I hear once they are over 6 months old it is much easier to leave them for longer than a couple hours!

You look gorgeous! So great that you two are going on date nights...I don't do that often enough - but it's so important!

Good luck with going back to work - hugs!

I am hoping I can stay home with our baby but money will be tight as to where it never has been before : / Not looking forward to that but we will see. Ellie will make new friends and will be so good around different people opposed to other kids who never get out of never have any interaction with anybody but their mom. Plus she is adorable so everybody will love them!

And I think I have those shoes! Cathy Jean?! I wore them when I fell down my moms driveway last year and busted the front of them but I still wear them, haha
