Sorry I haven't been around as much lately...a lot's been going on. As some of you know, my grandfather has been on the decline for quite sometime and he passed away on Friday. I took Emily to their house the day before so at least I got to have a few last moments with him and I am so glad he had these last 8 months to get to know Emily. And it was so touching when the picture of him and Emily won for "G is for great-grandparents". While he had lived a very long, full life and his death was totally expected, it is still nonetheless very sad and hard to process.

On a lighter note, my involuntary vacation following my company's layoff is coming to an end after this week. I got a new job as a Communications Director with a state association and while it is not ideal and pays far less than I was making before, I'm going to try and make the most of it...at least until I find something better This time at home with Emily has been great but I'm kind of looking forward to being back at work. I definitely give you SAHM's props because it is not easy!!!! I am glad that I got to watch Emily accomplish some of her milestones like sitting and discovering her voice and starting to crawl but I will not miss her fighting naptime or the occasional meltdowns.
