The main update is that I have moved to the DC/MD/VA (aka DMV) area!!! As you may remember, my parents live in Northern VA, and living in the area increases my support network for Naja. This is really a blessing, my mom is a TREMENDOUS help. She even encourages me to get out the house by myself while she watches Naja.
With this move also comes...a new job!!! C'mon guys...I wouldn't leave a well-paid job and move to a new city with a new baby without another comparable offer in hand. That's why I didn't respond to some of the comments regarding returning back to work and daycare - my apologies but your answer is here today! My new job is in the sales/commercial field, with a company in the healthcare industry in DC. My first day is next Monday, 9/12!

Naja and I are staying with my parents for a bit, getting adjusted to everything. My mom has graciously offered to watch Naja during the day for a little bit. We're not sure exactly how long for now. I will most likely put her in daycare part-time when she starts moving around more. So, that's all for me - new city, new job, new baby...talk about quarter-life changes!
