9 weeks!

Sweet Reese turned 9 weeks on Tuesday! She went to the doctor the day before and got her shots. She did well but did cry, actually she turned purple, did the silent scream for about 10 seconds and then let it rip. The good news, she calmed down really quickly.
She has been smiling so much this week and when she is awake she is looking around and making noises. I like this much more than the wailing, which she was doing when she was awake. We've been playing with some of her toys as well. She will look at most of them, smile sometimes but still isn't reaching out for them.
I'm trying to get out and walk with the stroller because I have been very focused on red velvet cake. I bought a cake from the grocery store and today I should polish it off, I think my craving will finally be gone when I'm done. I'm also still doing Pilates and see a difference in my stomach and my lower back isn't hurting as much.
Lastly, I have been thinking about my return to work and it is making me very sad. I wish I could stay home. I thought I would be ready to go back or that I would miss my job. But I don't miss it at all, not even a little bit. It is going to be so hard to leave her for 12 hours, but I'm glad it is only twice a week.
I will try and get a picture or video of her smiling. She smiles often but they are so quick.
