First Day On the New Job

Today is the first day of me officially being a stay-at-home mum. I resigned a nursing position in labor and delivery yesterday. 

I've worked since I was 15 years old.

I am thrilled and scared to death. 

So yes, we did get pregnant again, which was at first a nerve wracking experience as it came right on the heels (3 months) of the ectopic. Our little daughter "V" was born February 16, 2012. We delivered naturally in the hospital where I worked (!), surrounded by my sweet colleagues who were both intrigued and adamant that I have the "granola" delivery I was so set on. We used "Hypnobabies," (at least I think we did...I fell asleep after every contraction. I also fell asleep while I was pregnant, listening to the hypnosis tracks.), my husband caught and we used LeBoyer's "Birth Without Violence." It was an amazing experience, and little V came into the world quietly, staring around her like the little old soul that she is.

And she's six months old today.

My bright, sweet, blue-eyed girl with the lightning quick smile and the curiosity of ten babies...

I've never been in love like this before.
