Getting ready for work has been pretty fun since going back. While I was on maternity leave I got ready each day with my hair and make-up, but stayed in my yoga pants and tank top nearly all day long every day. I love the back of this blouse and the pretty gold buttons going all the way down. It looks gorgeous with a pencil skirt- I'll have to snap a pic!

This next month I'm training a new group of new hires at work so I'll be working late into the night, but luckily I'll get to also go into work later which means more time with Ellie! I'm hoping I can continue to wake up early (but not at my 5am wake up call now!) and go for a walk with her like we did while I was on maternity leave. 

Transitioning back to work has been easier for me than I thought, I really believed I would be in the bathroom crying my eyes out missing her. I still miss her each day and some days are harder than others, but I have yet to cry at work. I've choked up a few times in the morning before we leave the house, but I know it's what's best for our family at this time. However, the transition hasn't been as easy on Ellie. She loves her daycare and is always happy to be dropped off and is happy when we pick her up, but her sleep schedule has been a nightmare since my return to work. We've started the transition to her crib and the first week she slept there for most of the night and then would wake up once and I'd move her to the Rock and Play for the rest of the night. Then last week she slept the entire night without waking and I thought we hit the motherload. Then she hasn't slept since. In fact, on Friday I was up until 4 am with her on and off sleeping and Saturday she didn't nap and didn't go to bed until 1030pm and woke up twice still! What is going on??? Before I went to work she slept through the whole night easy peasy for weeks. I've been reading all over the internet, talking to other mommies and I'm just at a loss as to what to do. I'm not sure if it's separation anxiety, teething, 4 month sleep regression, a combination or what! Please mommies, if you have suggestions, let me know!
