And just like that, my 12 weeks of maternity leave are over...
I'm heading back to work on Monday morning and even though it's only part-time, it doesn't make it any easier. I actually think I felt more ready to go back to work after having Lucy than I do this time around (and I thought it would've been the other way around) but I know once I get back into the swing of things and get used to our new normal schedule, it'll all be fine.
Here's a look at what we did on my last full week off of work....
Sleeping in the bouncy seat and cuddling with her burp cloth
My parents came along as we went to the new outlet mall in Sunbury; Lucy had fun "trying on" clothes at Gap
They even had a nice outdoor play area that Lucy & Grandpa played on while Grandma, Cece, and I shopped
Going down the twisty slide
Playing with her new Sleeping Beauty legos
Bedtime when Todd works late (1-3 nights/week) can be a little crazy at times but it went surprisingly well this week
Sneaking in a nap on our walk around the neighborhood while Lucy was at preschool
Both girls had well visits on Tuesday afternoon (Lucy's 3 year and Cece's 2 month....although it was more like 2.5 months) so Todd met us there from work (Lucy looks a little worried about the flu shot she was about to get)
I thought it seemed a little quiet on the drive home and was pleasantly surprised to see both girls napping when I pulled in the garage
Working on tummy time
Playing with new stickers
Doing some painting
All ready for ballet in her new skirt (seriously, this could be one of my new favorite pictures of Lucy)
Staring at her toys on the activity mat
After preschool, we went for a walk to Murphy Park for a picnic lunch and to play (Lucy wanted to bring her Bitty Baby too)

Such a happy girl!
and going down the slide
So glad Lucy is back to napping again because it lets me have some down time to either get things done around the house or relax (usually a little of both!)
Finally made it to the zoo with these two by myself on my last day of maternity leave
Someone loves climbing!
