Leaving Wesley so I could go back to work was very difficult. I missed him like crazy, cried the whole way to work, and left about 2 hours early because I just couldn't take it anymore. I adore my job, but I missed my boy.
I know it's very important to have a life outside of your children. I am well aware that it's good for him to see mama doing valuable work. I know he's in great hands and making all sorts of people happy. I know it is healthy and necessary, but it is so hard.
When we finally made it back to Wesley he squealed with delight when he saw his mama and daddy. I loved on him and then had to run to the restroom for a second. He SCREAMED. We were told he didn't do that at all while we were gone. He was very clingy to mama for the next few days, which is very unusual. While I adore him loving on me, it did make it challenging to get much of anything done...
As you can tell by the pictures, our little man is VERY loved. We survived our trip and I know I'll be fine this week too. He's an adaptable baby who loves being with people.
