Joe went back to work today. I cried. I guess it's not that surprising, really; turns out, you pretty much have a 6 week period to deal with (both physically and emotionally) after giving birth. Consequently, I've cried every day since L was born... but this was different. Before she came, we thought if he took roughly two weeks off from work, it would be plenty. It never crossed our minds that it would be so hard. A lot of it is insecurity. Cesarians are no joke in terms of recovery. L was born on a Monday, and until that Friday when we came home, I was incapable of doing anything but feeding her. Joe took over burping, diapers, swaddling, and everything in between. So really, I've only had about a week of hands on experience.
But mostly, these past 10 days have been the best of my life and the time spent with Joe and our baby has brought me such immense happiness. I wasn't expecting to feel SO much joy, and I'm just a little sad to see this part of it come to an end. The good thing, however? This just means new beginnings and so much more to look forward to with my little family.
*On co-sleeping... it's kind of funny that I thought I would have a say in this, because Lucia will have it NO other way.
