Maternity Leave – Week 4

So, on Tuesday, we will have a 3 week old! Time is already moving by very fast!

This past week was a little better than the weeks before…in fact, each day is a little better than the one before it. The hubs and I are slowly getting the hang of things and figuring out each other’s responsibilities. My day is all about the baby (of course) – feeding her, playing with her, doing her laundry, and watching her sleep. I’m really trying to take little naps when she naps, but mostly I end up just watching her sleep. This does not make for a very productive day, but that’s okay.

We took some big steps this week – went on our first walk in the stroller around the neighborhood AND I left the house! I drove myself somewhere…TWICE! I never knew a trip to Walmart could be so exciting…baby stayed home with my husband and the in-laws. I’m taking her out in public for the first time on Tuesday…we’ll see how that goes!

As for work stuff this week, I did manage to work on National Boards for a bit (when I wasn’t watching baby nap, I worked on NB during nap time); I still made sure to check work email; I pinned some things for next year; and I started to go through a big stack of professional magazines that I have not been touching for awhile.

How was your week?
