Time Flies

I can't believe my last post was over a month ago!
Well, ok I can totally believe it!
Jessie had her naming ceremony on Saturday at Q's synagogue and we've had family visiting since Thursday, which has been great. It was so wonderful to finally see Jessie with Q's parents and his brother and sister. This little baby is well loved.

We had a scare at three weeks when Jessie got sick and was in the hospital with a urinary tract infection and low white blood cell count as well as a virus. She recovered but has a condition known as VUR or urinary reflux. Most babies grow out of this but it has to be monitored carefully because it causes infections and can cause kidney damage.

I return to work on April 25th and that hangs over me like a dark cloud. Jessie has been enrolled in a cooperative daycare and this week is transitional week so we can ease into this big change starting tomorrow.
I've been out of work for seven months. The time on bed rest seems far away and like a bad dream. So much has changed!


  1. Jessie is adorable Tree. The first day at work will be hard parting but just remember it is the quality of a mother's love that matters much more than quantity time. A nice routine will unfold in no time at all!

  2. Beautiful Baby, Tree. Take your time getting back into the routine of 'life' ... baby steps. Sending love and light for the journey, hugs from Mexico, Donna

  3. Such a beautiful baby!
    You are blessed!
