I have so much stuff to talk about. I think it will take me a few days to write this post. I want to update my readers on a few things and also get some advice. So I hope you are ready. There's no telling how long this post will be :)
First things first, lots of things happening at work. Since December there has been a lot of change on our team. It's now April and finally no more changes. Out of the changes, we got a new team leader, lost a few team members, added a team member, and we all got more responsibility. So instead of speaking for everyone else-I'll just speak for myself. I got a promotion-basically, I replaced the person leadership promoted to be the IT Director. Now, I will be leading the support team. It's an awesome opportunity for me and I'm definitely up for the challenge. My position was replaced and the new hire starts on Wednesday next week. It will be weird for me not to serve the IT team as their assistant, but I know my replacement will do a perfect job.
Second, a few personal updates. We picked out the nursery furniture. I have pictures below. So, what do you think??? :)
And if you haven't seen what we picked out for the nursery bedding-here that is...
But I've decided the tan walls make it look more boy like. So, I'm going to paint the walls the pretty green color. I figured that can go either way better. And I do really think green is WAY BETTER than yellow :)
So what do you think???
OK, so i've updated you on work and nursery stuff. What else is there?
Lastly, I need some advice- Please comment and help me out, thanks a ton!
1-I cannot decide whether to take 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 weeks maternity leave. If the baby comes at the beginning of October, 12 weeks takes me through the rest of the year. But should I really miss that much work? We have an amazing weekday program that my lil' one will go to. Let me know your opinions, even if I don't know you-i'd really appreciate your opinion on what works for you, or what you wish you had done or hadn't done.
2-Maternity photos, to do or not to do? Whats your opinion? I have always not wanted to do them. However, i have seen some that very real cute-so now I can't decide.
3-What was your favorite part of being pregnant? I'm still struggling with stomach issues. They come and go, but it's starting to be annoying. I want to stay positive so I thought your stories would make me smile.
4-When was the first time you felt the baby move and what exactly did it feel like? Please be descriptive :) I know I should feel the babe soon, I want to know what I'm looking for!
Ok, I think thats all I have for now. Thanks for reading this long post. I have got to be better about writing. So I don;'t have massive posts like this one.
I love you all-
