Three Month Photos

This morning was Dru's second photo shoot. She isn't a rookie in front of the camera, she's had her picture taken hundreds if not thousands of times but this was more formal. She was alert though kept most of her smiles to herself.

Now Dru is laughing and I absolutely LOVE it!!! Smiles were great, laughing is AWESOME!!! I hope to get that on video soon, it's priceless. She has now outgrown most of her 3 month outfits. Everyone says, "she's gonna be tall". Well, so far she is between 75-90% on her measurements so most likely that will be true.

Here are a couple of the photos from today.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tomorrow Dru will be 3 months old! Mama Julie is enjoying her time with her and I am getting a bit more used to being back at work. Here are some recent photos:

The first two are when Julie and I watched my nephew, Reed. Dinner was lasagna in the 1970's highchair then Reed was talking to Dru in his "language" and then pointed to the camera. It was amazing, he must have been telling her to look at the camera. I wish I would have gotten that on video.

The third is Dru ready to brave a cold car ride and the fouth is Dru giving me a Valentine's Day gift. Adorable!

We will be having her 3 month photos done on Saturday. Be prepared for cuteness :)
Also, be patient on the photos of Dru's donor, Jamie. They are still to come...

Work (a 4 letter word)

This is day 3 back to work. I haven't cried as much as I though I would. Monday was definitely the most difficult since the last time I was at work Dru was with me. I felt a bit lonely. Then when returning home Julie had Dru in the window and was waving her hand. It was so surreal! I'm not sure why but I think my brain was thinking life would go back to how it was that last time I was working. I was thrilled to see her and can't wait to see her every day!

I can see how I will be more tired now. Getting up with an alarm clock and not just hanging out. And evenings surely won't be the same.

This morning Dru woke up just before I left. I got to hold her and get her bottle ready. I didn't realize how much a difference saying good bye to her alseep versus awake would be. I was so grateful I got to hold her.

Thank you to those who have been thinking of me this week. I appreciate it. Heidi

Not So Super Sunday

So tomorrow is the big day. Dru will be in the hands of Mama as I head back to work. I try not to think of all the firsts I may miss. This will be an adjustment getting up with an alarm and being gone for 8+ hours.

And for those who didn't notice the presidential campaign, if you can, make your voice heard this Tuesday. This election will be historical no matter who takes office.
Enjoy these yummy pics...
