What’s New in La La Land

Quick update, but this post will be loaded with pictures.  I haven’t posted since our trip to Oklahoma, but not much has happened. Well, actually that’s a lie.  We had Christmas, grandmommie visited, mommy turned 30, daddy had surgery, mommy had surgery, and Alex grows each day as a toddler.  His vocabulary is amazing!  I worry about music on the radio because he picks up EVERYTHING (but he doesn’t know what those words mean).  We’re getting out of the temper tantrum phase, so my nerves are a little better. I passed my MLT certification and start working at the hospital on Monday (yay! excitement!).  Daddy and I are even looking at houses, seeing that our commute is over an hour long for the BOTH of us.  Anyhow, here is the past few months in pictures:

My Son is my Alarm Clock

Ever since I started working at the hospital (630am-3pm), my son switched his schedule along with me and wakes up at 5am for a morning feed. It’s almost like he is making sure that mommy is awake. Unfortunately though, before I started at the hospital, daddy threw his back out. Like super bad. The doctor doesn’t even want him to lift our 13lb son! Thank goodness for family who has been a big help. I love being able to take care of my husband, but its starting to be a pain, and it’s only been ONE WEEK! Sometimes, I wanna nap but I can’t leave him alone with the baby. God forbid if he falls or even drops the baby when he has a muscle spasm.
In other news, I’m still hating the daycare. For one, they fed my lil man rice cereal because he hit 4 months old. I asked them not to and they want a doctor’s note (since she said closer to 5-6mths). What is THAT craziness?!? Then, when his teachers speak of him getting solids, they tell me “he won’t want your milk anymore” or “how will you keep up??”. My response has been, “we’ll do just fine thank you”. Luckily for me, the hospital has been very accomadating with my pumping situation (it IS a hospital). Other than that mess at the daycare, everyone loves my son. I hope they don’t spoil the mess out of him!
Working at the hospital has been awesome. I felt weird asking for breaktime (which I can work with the ones already provided) and a place to pump. My director (a man) went straight to a nursing mom and asked her for the info and showed me the way! There are a lot of mothers that work there and its cool to hear stories about the different stages. Plus, I’m geting to do something I love, and that is working in the lab!

Life Changes

I always been a slight workaholic.  I go to school and work full-time.  I’m outside of my home approx. 15 hours a day.  That was all fine and dandy at the age of 22 when I was working on my undergrad and had two jobs.  I’m about to be 29, married with a new baby boy.  I have home responsibilities now.

As of September, I’ll be starting my clinical rotations for school at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta (and Fayetteville most likely).  I’m excited, but the bummer is that I’m leaving my current job (I already have senioritis tho).  With more time for myself (and my new family), I plan on re-vamping my business (StarLIT PR) and getting back into the thick of things.  I miss my friends out there, I miss my husband, and I definately don’t wanna miss out on my son.  Time for me to do ME!
