|my view of the little darling|
here, here and here if you are wondering what the heck I'm talking about!)
Well...to keep it short and simple - I decided to take a "personal leave" and enjoy SIX WHOLE WEEKS with our lil angel-face, Clara...even if it cost us an arm and a leg. The second we decided to go for the personal leave, I felt at peace and like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. Like I've said before, babies are only babies for a short time...they grow so fast. I am so blessed to have this time to cuddle my Clara, smell her sweet baby scent, nurse her, calm her and watch her sleep.
She is my joy.

These six weeks will be worth every last penny. I don't even want to think about the day when I get up in the morning and leave her for a 14 hour work day - tugs at my heart and makes my eyes water.
For now, I will cherish these moments... however fleeting they may be.
