I survived...

Yes...I survived my first day back teaching away from Izzy. It was really hard to leave her this morning, but I was okay once I got to school. Izzy spent the day with my best friend Trina who is also a teacher, but on strike right now in Kent and her two awesome girls Chloe (9) and Gracie (5). Little Izzy had a blast with the girls and had a great day! WHEW...makes me feel so much better! The only hiccup in the day was that I forgot the all the attachments to the breast pump at home, so I was HURTING all day! I won't do that again!

Last Friday Izzy found her thumb! It was so cute... I was driving home from Seattle and she kicked her blanket and Binky off of her so I couldn't reach back and help her. She was rubbing her face and sucking on her hands while grunting and all of a sudden she was quiet. I looked back and she had her thumb in her mouth. She does it a lot now. Looks like I may have a thumb sucker on my hands. Hopefully it won't be hard to break her of it when she is older, but for now I'm all for it if she can soothe herself!


We traveled down to Oregon so Tyson could do some birthday shopping (he turned 13 yesterday!) and to visit Aunt Tala and Uncle Brian. This was Brian's first time meeting Izzy. He hasn't been able to get up to Seattle due to work and a ton of weddings that he has been in. Izzy loved her Uncle Brian and we loved seeing them. Hopefully they will move home soon! Both of them said it is in their future!!!!!!!


Mom and Dad having fun while shopping in Portland! Sorry Izzy!

Cute pics, Jess and congrats on going back to work. I know it must be tough but it's admirable that you are able to juggle the professional hat and the Mom hat. Good luck!

You are awesome, Jess! Wonder Woman! Izzy is so sweet, she's changed so much since I saw her last! XOXO

I can't get over how much hair she has...what a pretty baby! Love the picture of her laying on Justin lifting her little head up. Don't you just love watching her play with daddy? Kena hasn't found her thumb yet but sucks on her hand/arm a lot. I love reading your blog to compare notes since our girls are so close in age so keep posting!! Glad your first day back at school went well - I forgot my pump attachements once too...seems like I forget at least one thing every time I leave the house!! (I though pregnancy brain was bad but new-mommy brain is the worst!)
