That's it. That's all I have left of my maternity leave and being home everyday with my beautiful baby girl. I can't believe how fast the time is flying by. I am very excited, and a little ready, to go back to work in September but I know I will miss, miss, miss my baby everyday. Man, am I going to live for Saturdays and Sundays. I also know that I am very lucky to live in Canada where we get a year off for maternity leave and that it is my choice to go back to work after only 8 months. Believe me, I know how lucky this is. It's hard to think that is some places in the world women are back to work after a mere 6 or 8 weeks. Those poor mommas and their poor babies. I would have hated to miss this early time in my baby's life, but I also understand that for many people staying home isn't an option because after all, their family needs to eat too.
One and a half months...so much of that time is already filled up with places to go and people to see. It's going to be over before I know it. I feel like Avery has already grown up so much. She is way bigger than when she was born, way stronger, does a lot more interesting things. Sometimes I feel like her babyhood is slipping away too fast. I also suppose that all moms feel like this.
As much as I want to go back to work and am looking forward to it I wonder if I will actually be ready for it when the time gets here? I wonder.
