Back to the Blog

OK so I have been away from the blog for a little over a month now.  Things have been a little crazy lately.  Work was taking up more of my time, and I was coming home stressed out about work, and how things were going.  Honestly I was just too tired and too caught up in everything work that I just did not feel like sharing anything. 

Things have changed, in particular since last week I was laid off.  The bosses scheduled a non descriptive meeting for Thursday afternoon and told me that they were unable to hire any of their contractors and that they were forced to let me go.  They let me finish out the week. 
Now I'm on the job hunt. 
Yes yes this all sucks, and the timing is o so perfect with a 3 month old baby and the holidays right around the corner.  (I hope you are picking up on the sarcasm.)

The cool thing about this is while I'm looking for a new job I get to spend some time as a Stay at Home Dad.

OK thanks for letting me share the news about work, but lets get to the good stuff.  Elizabeth is doing great.  She is strong and eating well, and sleeping in longer blocks.  Sometimes she even sleeps through the night.
She is steadily gaining weight, but could stand to gain a little faster than she is, according to the doc.  The acid reflux is still a problem, but it is much better than it has been.  I'm not sure if it's the medicine that helps keep her from spitting up or if it's the thickener we are using in her formula.  Either way it's an improvement.

Elizabeth is far more expressive and alert than she ever was before.  HUGE smiles and responses to me mom and the rest of the family.  Maybe I can get some good shots of a big smile and share for a wordless wednesday soon.
