I felt very strongly that I didn't want to start Darby in daycare 5 days/week when she was 2 months old, so here we are - Darby 3 months old and me unemployed. My current plan is to find another job that will allow me to work 3 days a week, starting in March, and I would love it to be in the non-profit space. Although I enjoyed my job, I always felt guilty about not "contributing more to society," so I am very excited to start a new chapter of my career working towards something that I am passionate about...I just have to find it (and hope that they would like me to work only on Tuesday's, Wednesday's and Thursday's:).
Until I find my next calling, I am going to cherish the time I have with my little Gnarbs! We have a great time exploring the new neighborhood, going to mommy and me activities, traveling a lot and hanging out with the Zoe dog.
Here are a few recents from my phone...she may be the most photographed baby ever (actually, I'm sure any of you with kids are in the same boat:).
|Mama and Gnarbs in New Hampshire|
|Looking like one of the 7 dwarves...Sleepy? Dopey? Drunk?|
|"Oh hey there. Like my new hat?"|
|Baby's day out in NYC...cab ride.|
|Not impressed with the fighting grizzlies at the Museum of Natural History|
|Not impressed with the Chilkat Weavings...|
|...or Central Park.|
|"Just holding my head up like a champ...no biggie."|
|"Thanks for the awesome onesie Auntie Courtney!"|
|"Oh, this old thing?"|
|My mom, sister and aunt are desperately trying to insure that Darby doesn't turn into a tomboy so they made her this tutu and hair bow. Much to my dismay, Darby seemed to love it. She beamed and giggled every time they put it on her.|
