A little break

I'm taking a little break from blogging for a bit. How long?  I'm not sure. I might still post this week but posting will definitely be infrequent. 

I go back to work exactly two weeks from today and from now until then I plan on spending every single second with Juliet. I don't want any obligations taking me away from time with her, which includes blogging. We've spent the entire past 12 weeks in a perma-snuggle, it's been the best 3 months of my life and I am teary thinking about it ending so soon.

I hope you understand! Check back from time to time and I'll be back to posting regularly in a couple weeks.


  1. Enjoy the rest of your maternity leave! It's gone by really fast.


  2. We can't wait to have you back at work - but I can't imagine what you're going through right now to mentally prepare for it. Please let me know how I can help you in your transition! XO

  3. Thinking of you Jenna! I remember the weeks leading up to maternity leave being very hard and honestly, that first week back was hard too, but it got better everyday.

  4. Oh, my God! Why do you rush back to work???? I do not understand, really, your baby is so little. So why? And who will be with Juliet?

    In my country mothers stay at home 1 to 3 years with their child.

  5. Zsuzsa- standard maternity leave in the US is 12 weeks, many women go back even sooner than that. Juliet will be cared for by my mother, she will be in excellent hands.

  6. Jenna she is so pretty, I will miss your amazing posts. I love your Instgram photos please keep posting. Kids are a great joy in life enjoy her. Best wishes to you and your family xxx

  7. Oh, my God it is so weird somehow: you born a child, but you can not be with him/her, you are not the one who hear her first word, see her first step. What is good in that system for the USA, for you, american mothers and childs? I do not understand it from here.

    I think the first year is the most precious, one can work in the entire life, but a child is only once born.

    And one more question: a 12 weeks old baby brestfeeds, so how do you and other american women solve that problem? Here it is common that a mother breastfeeds 6-10 month long, because mother milk is the best for a child.

  8. I've just discovered your blog :) You little Juliet is so pretty!

    I'm following :)

    Have two amazing weeks with your little girl.


  9. Hang in there Jenna. You will get through the transition back. You will get into your groove and your time with her will be quality time!

  10. Zsuzsa, yes, we are not as lucky as women in other countries in that respect. Many working mothers breastfeed for 12 months. They feed the baby while at home and use a breast pump while at work. Their baby feeds during the day on the pumped breast milk.

  11. They have many hopes ans aspiration with this baby Juliet.As in earlier time they ave suffered a lot so this time they wanna be loss their this awesome happiness from them.As she is too cute so everyone likes her a lot.


  12. They are too happy after having Juliet among she is growing up day by day and for this they are going to present a celebration with all their family members.So they are very exited for that.
