Visiting family and back to work


last week we took a trip to AZ to visit my family and show off baby boy to everyone. It was a nice trip, though it was EXTREMELY hot! Luckily the A/C decided to wait until the night we left to completely break down. While I'm terribly sorry for my mom I'm thankful that it stayed working for our visit for baby boy's sake...

After we returned home it was time to get ready for my return to work :(. FMLA time was up, and hubby's had started. He's now at home with the little one, and while I'm totally jealous because he's where I want to be, I'm so glad that they have this bonding time and frankly, I'm thankful that my husband actually WANTED to stay home with him. A girl I work with told me she can hardly get her husband to change a diaper. I feel sorry for her because to me, that sounds like she's a single mom - not in a partnership...

My first day back I cried the whole way to work, talked about Colin all day long, posted pics all over my desk etc. Absolutely no work was completely during that time. I'm slooooowly transitioning to do some actual work, since I have reviewed the 1313 emails that were sitting in my inbox - eek!! It's getting easier in the sense that I'm getting numb - I still cry, and it's still really hard to leave him in the morning. But, I'm thankful that he's not in daycare and that he's home with daddy, and I know they are getting such an incredible experience right now. That gets me through the day. Although I do count down the minutes until I get home to my boys.

Yeah, it's hard at first, but it does get better. I cried the whole Sunday before I went back to work. I just wanted to stay home. Around mid-morning Tim called me to say hi and I could hear Pen in the background and I lost it. I'm not sad anymore, except when does something for the first time and I'm not there. I still have pictures of her all over my office and if anyone sty in my office for more than 30 seconds, they get an earful about Pen and have to look at my pictures. I have a digital frame with about 100 pictures on it that I look at while I pump.

We are going to Rocky Mountain National Park and to visit Tim's aunt, I don't know where she lives, Pueblo, Golden, Denver? But I will definitely let you know.
