2 Months and Back To Work

Well, the time has flown by far too fast and Caiden turned 2 months old yesterday. He's getting so big and fun and more and more adorable by the day.  And unfortunately two months also means the end of my maternity leave and the return to teaching high school art tomorrow morning.  BOO-HOO!!!!  I really really don't want to go back to work tomorrow.  I will really really miss these wonderful days at home with my little man Caiden. 

I could really cry up a storm if I would let myself.  I'm going to try really hard not to do that.  I would truly appreciate prayers that everything would go as smoothly as possible - for me at work - for Caiden at daycare - for all of us trying to get ready in the morning (yikes!)  

I thought I would share a couple of photos that show how Caiden has grown and changed.  I will take a photo of him with this bear each month.  Here are the 1st 3 photos:

Caiden at 1 week

Caiden at 1 month

Caiden at 2 months
As you can see, he has grown just a little bit!  11 lbs. 8 oz  - 2 weeks ago!!!  And he's lost a lot of his hair!!

Well - Caiden is down for bed.  So I suppose I better go to bed too.  Hopefully we'll get a good night's sleep and be ready for the big day tomorrow.  Still can't believe I have to go back to work. =(


  1. Dear Kara, what beautiful photos! he is so cute!
    Hope you all can get well adapted to the new routine.

  2. Work..why can't we just win the lottery and not have to work?! Good luck today! Thinking of you....hugs!


  3. Kara, I am so happy for you. Sorry about having to return to work. He is so so cute. Keeping you in my prayers, sending hugs..... Julie

  4. Hope all is going well.
    Going back to work stinks!

  5. oh he is a cutie! I hope being back to work is going well for you! I feel like it's more difficult to leave Claire than it was with my older girls, I just want to hold onto her forever, like it's too good to be true that she is here and healthy. Thinking of you and your beautiful family :)

  6. that's a good idea to put him next to the same bear every picture, then you can really see his growth. They change so fast... He is adorable - love his smile! I hope work is going well for you. I bet you miss him like crazy :o( How are the kids doing with him? I'm getting close to having Asa and have wondered if the kids respond differently to a baby after losing a sibling??
    thinking of you always ♥

  7. I know going to work is hard. HE IS SO CUTE> I am so happy for you!
