So, it’s Monday and it’s my first day alone with my baby girl! Tim was able to take a first time parent leave at his work and has been off with us for 6 weeks!!!!! I cannot tell you how awesome it has been. I am so thankful that he has been able to share in the special early moments of Eleanor’s life.
It was really hard for him to leave us this morning. It was hard for me to see him leave! (I have been spoiled with all the help!!!!) Throughout the day I have been sending him cute texts from me, E and Maddie. I know that has helped him. I have also just spent some time praying for him today too.
With husband going back to work today…..I can’t help but think about when I have to go back to work too! I go back part time the first week of July. I know this is what we need to do (and I also look forward to working a few days) but I am dreading this! I’m afraid it is just going to be unbearable to leave peanut. I brought myself to tears this afternoon just thinking about it. ha! I hope I don’t annoy our babysitter too much with all my texts when that time comes!!! :)
So how did today go?
It has been awesome!!!!!!!
Me and peanut did so well! On our first day alone together she was soooo happy! I even managed to lay her in the crib for a nap! We have been trying this and she hasn’t liked it…..but today she napped in there for 30 minutes. And she only woke up because I went in to try to take a picture of her sleeping!!!! hahahaha! Rookie mistake!
I am so looking forward to the rest of the month getting to spend everyday with my girl! It just keeps getting better if that’s even possible!
So, here is to day 1! We did it!
And…..here is a picture of peanut from her 6 week photo shoot!
