It's been awhile

I have been back at work for 4 weeks now. It hasn't been too bad. I cried and cried the night before, and maybe even on the drive in, but once there I was too busy to be sad! It is quite an adjustment, however.

PB and J go to my sister's house during the day. They come home completely exhausted because their cousins cannot get enough of them! They keep my sister busy with crying, eating and pooping and we are all looking forward.

We had a naming ceremony at our Jewish temple. They did very well, although I did have to take Jack outside to nurse for awhile. They were very chatty while we were up with the Rabbi. They were happy to get their Hebrew names!

We are getting very close to their 6 month birthday!! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. I am still breastfeeding, but they get formula in their bottles because I do not pump enough. The little porkers SCREAM like crazy if they don't get enough milk in their bottles! I have no idea how much they get from nursing, but it must be a lot!!

Pumping at work is a weird little experiment. It doesn't seem 'right' to take my shirt off in my classroom! So far nobody has walked in on me! Thank goodness!!!

Time is just flying by. There aren't enough minutes in the day to love and snuggle these little joys. I vaguely remember what my life used to be like, and I never had any idea how much I could love 2 little people!

They are just too adorable! and how quickly they've grown!

So glad to hear that all is going well at work! It is still so hard for me to leave them, although once at work the day just flies by because I'm so busy, so thats nice!

I too have found pumping at work to be strange...even though we have a lactation room. Its weird to be pumping somewhere other than my living room!

holy crap they're cute.

I hated pumping at work too.

Good job still nursing those two! I nursed my little one for almost 18 months... enjoy it... you'll miss it when the little buggers decide they're done.
