What a difference a half an hour makes! I decided to come to work at 8:30 today since I have a meeting until 5:00 and it was great! First of all, Claire slept from 9:00 to 5:20 (yippee!), so I fed her, changed her and laid her back down. Then I successfully pumped out 4.5 more ounces (gotta keep that freezer stocked!) and took a half an hour nap before getting up and ready for the day. I could hear her in her room coughing for attention, so I knew she was awake. So, instead of tip-toeing around in the kitchen like I do every morning while trying to get breakfast and leave the house, I got her up and got to see all of her bright, sun-shiny smiles while eating breakfast at the table with her in her bouncy seat and Huz eating across from me. It was like the weekend – I actually got to see my family! Loved it. I think I’m going to change my working hours so I get this every morning.
