Just wanted to share some pictures of her. Plus I got a new lens and I'm loving it :) She's 9 months old now.

Yes, he is! :) I rarely meet another mama who's SO is a miner. What shift does your SO work? Mine is night shift :/ He works all night, comes home between 10-12 then sleeps until 5 or 6, & leaves again at 8. It's amazing pay but scary & dangerous!

I know it me either that's why I thought it was funny lol. And he does 2 different shits, days for 2 weeks then 2nds for 2 weeks. He's on 2nds now. And yes it is very good pay, and insurance, but dangerous and long hours. My husband loves it though so I'm glad for that. He's been there about 2 1/2 years. So you only get around 3 hours together each day? I get about 3 with him when he's on 2nds and about 4 when he's on days.

Lol, this made me giggle :)



But yes, very long dangerous hours. & We barely even get those 3 hours together honestly :/ He gets on -box as soon as he wakes up until he has to leave & I'm cooking dinner or bathing Ryleigh or whatever. Sometimes I feel like a single mom. But He works Sunday night through Thursday night & has Friday & Saturday off usually so it's not too bad. He gets overtime as well in those 5 nights he works. That has to suck that they switch his shifts. Bobby was day shift at first & then made the switch to nights. He has been there a year now. He got hired the day DD came home from the hospital :)

lol oh my I didn't notice it did that. The funny thing is I have cuss words on surfs so it took me a second to figure out what I was trying to say lol. And that stinks you don't get much time with him. My husband will spend time with us when he's at home but he gets tired easily. If he could get a full day shift he would take it but they don't really offer it much over there. There is also a midnight shift but he doesn't really want it. One reason he hates 2nds is we have a daughter in kindergarten so he doesn't get to see her till the weekends when he's on 2nds. That's good timing for the job!
