Not so much with the baby, instead with the job search. Moving across country entailed finding a new job. I am the primary breadwinner (for now) so, the pressure is on. May I just say, job searching sucks! I did not think it would take me this long to find something. Especially now that we are in NYC. I am just finding that I am either overqualified or underqualified for everything (according to interviewers). I am getting interviews. I have had six, in fact (not including second and yes, third interviews). I can apply for nearly the exact position at two different places and one person will think I'm missing experience and the other person will think that I will be bored. It is terrible and awful and I am really getting worried for our future. It isn't like I can just find any job either. Childcare is upwards of $15 an hour here, so it has to be something that is worth me going to work. I guess the flipside is that I get to spend more time with PJ....which I am loving.

PJ is doing great. She has discovered her hands and spends most of the time with them shoved in her mouth. She is making a lot of noise and loves bathtime. She's also getting big! She was 12 lbs and 23.5 inches at her 12 week appointment. I can't wait to see how much she has grown at her next appointment. Overall, she is an extremely easy to take care of and happy baby. We got really lucky. Cloth diapering and bfing are both going easier then expected as well. I have been thinking a lot about giving her a sibling and how we are going to go about doing this. I don't want it to happen any time soon but I think me and Mr. F came to the agreement that if we didn't get lucky naturally by the time I hit 36 (2.5 more years) then we will really sit down and figure it out. I can definitely say, however, that I want to give PJ a sibling. I am loving every second of having her with us. It's seems a bit crazy to consider next steps now...but it took us 3 years to get her here.
