A Day in the Life of a Working Mama

Last week, my friend Katie shared a day in the life with her 16 week old daughter. I love, love, love these kinds of posts because, well to be honest, I’m nosey and I thought it would be fun to share my version as a working mother. I’ve never done one of these before because my day to day life wasn’t that interesting before Baker, but now that she’s 16 weeks old, I feel like we never stop. On Wednesday, I made to sure to capture what a typical weekday looks like in the Sloan household.

Be warned though…there is a lot of milk in this post and this is an unedited version of our life. Don’t be jealous of our glamorous it is. :)

Newborn Favorites 

Hello, friends! It has been forever since I’ve blogged and I have truly missed you guys. Life has been busy though and we are trying to adjust to me being a full time, working mommy.

Now that we are officially out of the newborn stage (all the tears, y’all. I loved this stage!) I wanted to share a few of our newborn favorites that we used the most during Baker’s first few months. Babies require a lot of different things and the lists you find on Pinterest can be so overwhelming. We definitely used way more than these few items but I thought I would share my top recommendations for newborn must haves!

Baker Bea | 2 months

Two.
Holy cow, y’all. That time, she’s a thief. While I love seeing our girl grow and develop into her own little self, it makes me so sad that the sweet newborn moments are quickly fading away. Baker was two months old on September 8th (I’m just a little behind. Ahem.) and boy, has she changed over the last month. Most noticeably? That hair, y’all. It’s completely un-tamable and I love it!

Maternity Leave Ending

I promise that I’m still alive, y’all. Here’s the thing, I have to go back to work tomorrow and I’m really struggling with it. I always knew I would struggle with this but goodness, that was the fastest 12 weeks of my life. Before Baker arrived I could never comprehend the love I would feel for her and just how much I will miss spending my days with her. I’m feeling major mom guilt that we will be sending her to a sitter because I feel like someone else will be raising my child and it literally breaks my heart. Maybe it will get easier, but every time she looks at me and smiles, I just well up with tears and every milestone I will miss flashes before my eyes. Lots of encouragement and prayers needed, y’all. 


So while I’ve got a couple post in drafts, including her 2 month recap, I’m soaking up every last moment I have with my sweet girl. Maybe one day soon I’ll get back here regularly!
