Today is the Day!

I completely forgot to get E to take a picture of me last night for me to post on my last day of work, but that's ok. I will get one at home tonight and post it later on!

But today is my last day for 12 weeks!! 12 weeks off to be with my new baby girl. I am really excited. I know it will come with exhaustion, frustration and boredom on some (most) days but I always think of something that a friend said to his wife many years ago about staying home with their kids..."Any bad day at home with your kids is better than a good day at work doing a job you hate!" DING DING!! He wins the prize for reading my mind! I know I will have to go back to work for a little while but hopefully not for long. We have some big life events coming up besides the baby, that will be revealed when they are all confirmed so I am hoping to come home for good soon enough.

I will try to remember to post my last pregnant picture tonight when I get home, but after that...this may be the last post before I am a Mom. Monday morning, 6am starts the beginning of a long day for the staff here at Everyday Bailey!! (HA...like I have staff) But I will post pictures and announcements as soon as I get a chance! Wish me luck!!

I know you are happy. And you've probably already skipped out, after giving your comp time and schedule of time off for the 887th time! Can't wait to see Baby Bailey!!

Brooke, I just discovered your blog! I love it! My daughter has one and has continued it so our whole family all over the country can keep up with Baby James. I would have loved having this technology back when I moved 9 hrs away from my parents with 3 children. It would have been so much better than taping the children's voices on a cassette tape & sanil mailing it back & forth! I even found one of the old tapes the other day and it was so funny to listen to the children when they were 4 & 2. Blessings to you this week as Rachel comes into the world and you and Eric begin a new journey together as parents. Kids are wonderful but Grandchildren are better! Blessings
