Well, I officially have gone back to work (full time)! Although this is such a blessing, and an absolutely amazing opportunity, it is very bittersweet for me. I have stayed home with Averi up until now (9 months), and it is going to be quite the change. I am so blessed to have my grandmother to help me out with watching Averi while I am at work but as of April 2nd, Ave will start daycare. While I am super nervous about it, I got really lucky in having one of my best friends being a manager at this particular daycare/school. And, not only will she keep an eye on my sweet girl, but someone very close to Ave will be there to check in on her daily, as well . :-) Not to mention, her cousin Mason, will be in her classroom with her!
While it is hard on me to make this transition, I am so excited for the future of our little family! Going back to work means we are able to purchase a house sooner! Pretty soon, Averi will have a big backyard to explore, and a swing set to play on. I also have to make it known, I absolutely love this new job and the people I am working with. It is so good for me. I prayed and prayed for answers as far as a career and/or job, and once again, God delivered. He has provided me a wonderful employment opportunity with great pay and excellent benefits, and on top of that, a daycare for Averi where a wonderful friend (that I trust with my entire being) works! I couldn't ask for anything more. I am so thankful.
I do still plan to blog, just hang with me momentarily while I get into a new groove and figure out a new routine!
