back to work...

So today marked the day I have been dreading since Tenley's arrival...back to work.  I went to Topeka for the day to start getting back in the swing of things and learning how to balance work and family.  It went pretty well, I think just knowing that I don't have to work everyday is what saved me.  Today was actually the only day that I will work this week.  Daddy got to stay home with Tenley today,  but unfortunately he came down with the flu! When I was getting ready for work this morning (around 5:30 am) he said he didn't feel well, but figured it would pass.  Not so much, he felt awful all day and was in bed  by 8 o'clock tonight and called in sick for tomorrow, which I am not sure he has ever done. I just pray her and I don't get it next and that he feels better soon. 

So though I was not looking forward to today, I am glad it is over and we did it.  There were some tears and worried moments, but I know she had a great time with Daddy even if he was sick.  On top of that it was wonderful to arrive home to big smiles and cuddles. I am also so very thankful for a job that I love and that allows me so much flexibility.  I get to spend lots of time with my wonderful family and fly a great jet, I have a truly blessed life! 

We have had a busy last week with Thanksgiving and Tenley's baptism.  I will do my best to get those pictures posted in the next day or so.

Sleeping Beauty

So call it an Angelic Baby, good sleep training, or LUCK, whatever you like. At any rate our little Tenley slept all through the night for the first time last night! Yippee!  Unfortunately, for Tim, he was on call for EMS last night and the phone rang for him to go in at about 3:15 am, he got up to go and we figured that she would wake up shortly after, but when he got home an hour later she was still sound asleep.  We had to wake her up at 6:30 this morning to eat.  Guess time will tell if this is a new revelation for her! Such a sweet sweet baby!

Love My Daddy

I just love the way they look at each other already! Precious!

Happy Halloween..1.5 weeks later..

Our first holiday has been and gone, and it was a good time.  Daddy had to work at the Fire Dept that day, so Tenley and I just "trick or treated' there and hung out for a while and watched the other little ones visit the station.  They always have hundreds of kids stop by, so it was fun to see their costumes and Daddy got some time with Tenley all at the same time.  Since he worked, we "re-created" Halloween when he got home so that we could get some family pictures.

Just Chillin'

Daddy & Tenley having fun...makes me nervous!

We hope that you all had a great Halloween and are looking forward to the holidays to come, I know we can't wait!
