I survived the first day...

back to work. I missed baby K so much and couldn't wait to come home. When I did, the first thing I heard coming out of the car was her squealing, "Mommy"!!!! It was music to my ears. Edward was so sweet to bring her to the door, so she can be the first thing I see when I got out of the car. I have never been so happy to come home. I just wanted to hold her and kiss her all over. I got hugs and kisses back too...but after a couple of minutes, as a typical toddler, she squirmed out of my arms and wanted to show me how she can ride her trike. And she sure can. She is growing so fast...

I'm home today and I just put her down for a nap. Sweet girl went down easily despite some congestion and cough. It's gloomy and cold here this week. We're hoping for sunshiny days really soon, so she can get some outside time to play.

Returning to work is daunting, as it means not seeing my sweet angel everyday. God give me tomorrow is another day away. But in a way, it feels real. We are now out of our bubble and this truly is our life...she really is home and she really is our little girl!!!


  1. One day down!!! It must feel good to have that out of the way. It must have melted your heart when she ran to the door yelling mommy! How precious!! Enjoy your day off with your precious girl!!

  2. Music to mama's ears! How lovely to have not just one someone to look forward to at the end of the day (Edward, of course), but your delightful baby girl! Praying for you that your transition continues smoothly. Continue to enjoy your welcome home kisses and hugs - hopefully looking forward to them will bring you home to her that much faster!

  3. Renee! It was a wonderful day! And Jen, I can't wait until this amazing part happens for you!!!
