I Quit!

Yes, it's true. I have worked my last night shift in the Newborn ICU. Devin is now working at Omniture full time and that includes good things like more money and insurance. So now I get to stay home with Sam full time. And no, I am not pregnant so quit asking and quit touching my fat belly (Brett)! As with any change, there are good things and some hard things. I am loving sleep! After 5 1/2 years of night shifts, you forget how to go to sleep early, get up early and actually sleep for all of the hours in between. Wow, what a difference! I am really missing all my friends in the NICU. I will really miss seeing my Mom so much too. It's kinda like graduating High School. You really won't miss the school so much, but you will miss all the great people. You say you will stay in touch, but we all know that doesn't always happen. I really hope that my friends will keep in touch (hint, hint) because I now have lots of time for emails, phone calls and play dates. I am so excited to stay home and be a Mom, but not exactly sure what to do. This has been made even harder by our 21 day quarentine (chicken pox exposure post). My first day at home with Sam we played in the backyard and I made Play-doh. How domestic!

Who wouldn't want to be with this cute boy all day?!

Congratulations, I know this is something that you have been wanting for a long time. I am proud of you and I know it will be hard for everyone in some ways but congrats! Sleep...um....Sleep

Hey I will miss you too. But it is so fun to stay at home with your little guy, and no worries you will soon wonder how you fit work into your life :)

I (and many more I am sure) are jealous!!!

Krista! Congrats! That's so fun that you get to stay home now! I'm sure it will be a totally different kind of party!
Your Sam is SO cute! I love seeing the pics of him. I think he is going to get along with my Ryan really well!!!
We're going to be home for the summer so we'll have to have LOTS of playdates!!! I'll be at my parents.

I can't believe you left us! One day you were talking about maybe leaving some day, and the next, you were gone! I'm so sad and I will miss you tons! I definitely am jealous that you get to stay home with your cute Sam! Keep in touch. We should do a play date sometime.
