Not permanently, just until about 5 PM tonight. Truthfully, I think it's harder on Daniel going to work today and leaving his baby behind, than it is for us to have him leave us. Poor guy, he's so completely smitten with Ethan. I've never loved him more than I do this week.
So far we've spent most of the morning eating. Ethan tends to cluster feed in the mornings, starting at his 5 or 6 AM feeding and continuing on until about noon. I'm typing this with one hand, because he doesn't like to be put down between the morning feedings. I'm hoping for him to fall asleep soon- I need to go to the bathroom! I'm really going to be glad when Ethan gets up to 8 pounds and we can use the Baby Bjorn- it'll make it much easier to get things done around the house with two free hands.
It's starting to hit me that I'm really not going back to work anytime soon. It's really very strange. I'm not entirely sure yet how I feel about it.
In good news- I haven't cried since Tuesday! I think maybe the "baby blues" are starting to go away a bit. Sleeping more helps too.
My best friend is coming over in an hour. With laminated things for me to cut out! She's an elementary school teacher, and the week before school is my favorite part of the year every year, because she laminates tons of things for her classroom, and I get to help cut them out of the laminated sheets. Which is one of my all-time favorite activities! Fun!
