Yes, we made it through our first week of me working and Lillian staying with her daddy. I went back to work this past Tuesday. I woke up on time Tuesday morning and everything went as I had planned. Lillian woke up before I left and I was able to feed her and then she went back to sleep so her daddy could sleep in. It didn't hit me that I was having to leave my baby girl for the entire day until I was in the car driving to work. I then started to cry! I made myself dry up the tears and put my big girl pants on because I couldn't go back to work looking a hot mess. The day at work went great. I can not say enough good things about my job and the people I work with. They are so understanding and supportive and made my pregnancy so much easier and now the working mommy issues. I was definitely slow my first day back but it was like riding a bike. I was quickly able to remember how to do things and by the 2nd and 3rd day I was able to take the training wheels off. :)
God really had this planned out for Jon and I when he blessed us with our new jobs in 2012 and now our baby girl in 2013. It's just another reminder of why I always need to have faith in Him and His plan and timing. Jon did bring Lillian to visit me at work on Tuesday afternoon. He had her looking so cute in a dress and wearing a bow! I was one proud mommy and wife!
On Thursday Jon had to go to the hospital for a few hours for an inservice. My MIL came over and watched Lillian. I am very thankful that we have her to help out and watch our precious girl when we have to work!
Jon did great with Lillian all week! She was pretty fussy Friday, but he managed to handle it and they both made it through the day. He was able to stop by my work for a visit that day, and I showed Lillian off to everyone at the office.
Jon did not have to be on call any this past week because he took a few days off in order to get used to taking care of Lillian. This week coming up he will be on call on Tuesday and Thursday. My MIL will be available those days if needed. Hopefully this next week goes just as good as the past and hopefully it continues to get easier to leave for work in the mornings. When I get off work in the afternoon now all I want to do is cuddle with my sweet girl. It melts my heart to see her sweet smile when I get home after missing her all day!!
