No, what was harder than I thought it would be was leaving my sweet baby for the first time! Thursday night I had a Junior League meeting that was mandatory for provisionals. Meaning, I HAD to go and leave my 3 1/2 week old baby! Luckily, his daddy and his Grandeb were there to take care of him. But it was also the first time I left him for more than 30 minutes! Since the meeting was scheduled from 7-9, I knew with travel time included he would need to eat- and since mommy is his bottle at this point, that wasn't going to work.
So Wednesday, while I was still home, Grandeb gave him his first bottle. He did great! We gave him 2 oz of my
Unfortunately, this meant that I could NOT pump enough before Thursday night. Hmmm....
So, we prepared a bottle of formula, but I planned it all out so hopefully he wouldn't need to eat. I fed him until 6:30, and I knew I could be home right around 9.
Anthony met me in a parking lot near the JL building, we switched cars, and I headed to my meeting. Except when I got in his car to drive off, I started SOBBING!!!!!! I had no idea I would react like this! I hadn't been upset or thought of this possibility all day! I watched my husband and my baby drive off and just cried! OHMYGOSH it was so pathetic! I knew he would be in great hands, but good heavens I had no clue I would be so sad to leave my little man!
Anthony and my mom ended up feeding him 3 1/2 oz of formula- my little man was HUNGRY! He did great while I was gone (so they tell me!) which made me feel a million times better! I only texted them three times during the meeting to make sure everything was ok- which I thought was very good on my part! :)
Anyway, that is my QUICK story for today. Who knew it was so hard to blog when you have a new baby?!?
And now, I leave you with this picture from church this morning... Now can't you see why it was so hard for me to leave this sweet boy?!
