Leaving

On Monday I had a dentist appointment - my first time away from Amalea. Everything in my wanted to call and cancel the appointment, but I knew I needed to keep it. So, I did and for one hour I was away from my baby.
I felt anxious the entire time. I was wondering how she was doing - was she crying, was she sleeping, was she happy - it was hard.

I guess that is one of the things that changes in my life now that I am a parent - worry begins to creep in and anxiety is increased. I am learning the new curves of life with a child and the new emotions that it all brings. It's hard, but I love it so much. She is absolutely worth all the anxiety, all the pain, all the worry - she is beautiful, strong, healthy (besides the eye thing), loud, animated, cuddly, warm, and so lovable.

we can't wait to meet her! the leaving the baby behind thing gets slightly easier over time, but it's still definitely hard...

She's such a beautiful baby! I can't wait to see her (and you & Jim too) again.

What's the address for Amalea's blog/website again? I want to store it on my work computer. =) Yes, I AM working hard! I just want to look at my pretty baby girl when I'm bored/stressed out.
