TLF is back...whooo hoooo!

Such yummy pictures. No, you can't be mad at that sweet face.

Oh look at her little Valentine outfit!!! Such pinchable cheeks too.

She is so adorable! And that hair is just fantastic! My babies are nearly bald until at least a year old.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your little cupcake (love the outfit!) And happy birthday to Luke!

SUCH a cutie pie! Happy Valentine's Day to all 3 of you and Happy Birthday to Luke!

Enjoy the day and each other as much as you can. *Hugs* :)

I am going to focus on the positives of this post because it's Valentine's Day.

1. Your little Kara is adorable in her little V-day outfit!!
2. Happy Birthday, Luke!
3. TLF! Woooo Hoooo


P.S. ~HUGS~ I know you are strong and will get through this trying time...even if it sucks really badly.

THAT HAIR!!! She's so precious!!! Eeeeekkk! Okay, back under control now.

She's precious! Happy Valentines Day.

I think you have the most sweetest husband ever. Happy Birthday, Luke.

I hope you find that going back to work is not that big of a deal after all. You are so lucky that Kara will be at home, with a parent. I am so jealous.

Aren't you getting a little bored with being at home all day long, day after day? I was ready to go back to work, if only I could have taken the baby with me.

Your baby has about 10 times more hair then my 8 month old.

I hope you find a balance that makes you happy. Good luck.

I absolutely LOVE her hair!! My girls had tons of hair too--have you started playing with it yet? I always put a little "Pebbles" topknot in my youngest's hair--sometimes I could look into the den from the kitchen and all I could see was hair bobbing along as she toddled around.

It's okay to be sad. It will actually help you remember these days more, and not take them for granted. I wasted far too many days not realizing how lucky I was--you already know how lucky you are, and now this time is burned in your memory, yours to keep forever.

I know it will be a bit of a transition, but hopefully these next 3 weeks will be a period of heart-warming family togetherness for the three of you. I bet you will get to see even more of how amazing a dad Luke is and it will make you feel that much better about going back to work and leaving the two of them at home.

I know it doesn't seem like it now, but it will get easier. You guys are soooo lucky that one of you gets to stay home!

I cannot get over how quickly she is growing!!!! She is just so cute!!

She looks so much like you! :) So cute. I just love her hair!

ACK toooooo cute! I love her love her love her! Yay about TLF. I'm sorry about the whole going back to work and you wanting to be home with Kara... it's so tough, and you're doing what you have to do. You already have an incredible bond with Kara. Trust me. She will be SOOOO excited to see you when you get home. but, I'm sorry you're sad. :(

I don't know if it will make you feel better or not, but there are days - LOTS of days - when I wish that I was going back to work. My husband makes twice what I did so it's not an option for us for him to stay home, sadly. I'm happy for you that your husband can stay home and happy for you that you can go back to work and feel productive and get something done every day. Good luck and enjoy the next few weeks.

Oh that hair! I love it!!

I don't think you can ever post enough pictures of Kara. She is so cute and cuddly.I cannot believe she is almost 2 months old. No way. It seems like just last week you were getting married. Time goes way too fast. God Bless your beautiful family.

I'm a working mom, a business owner, and my husband stays at home with our two kids. not because I necessarily wanted it that way, but because it made the most sense.

So we could eat, and all.

It always feels a little sad (my kids are 3 and 4), but as time goes on it becomes a little more normal.

Moms have it so tough. Men. The lucky bastards.

Okay, so did you just clone yourself, or what? Because really, that baby looks just.like.you. Which makes me feel kind of weird for squeeing about her cuteness, BUT I MUST.

Good luck with the new schedule. I think once you get settled into your routine, you'll be less sad. Maybe? And then think how awesome it'll be to come home to that face every day.

Dude, I don't know how I missed this entry. I can't wait for TLF to come back. I can't promise that I'll have the time to help but I'll be sure to read.
Kara is just the cutest thing. And she has the best hair EVER.
