3 months passed by so quickly after I returned to work…I decided to take another 6 weeks of maternity leave during December, as it was lull period at work. It sort of worked out fine since I was able to enjoy different phases of Baby L’s growth. Being around at the time when she was six months old meant that I was there to witness her sitting unassisted. Did I mention that I missed her first crawl? She also, well, sort of, called out mama during that time. It was simply amazing to be able to hear that sound clearly coming out of this little baby of mine.
