While Daddy's Away...

... Mama, Fynn and Zoey will play.

Drew's back at work today. Not going to lie, it freaks me out a lot little. I may or may not have cried (multiple times) over the past few days in anticipation of today.

 Most of what worries me is logistical stuff. For example, when we got up this morning, Zoey needed to go out. I couldn't leave the baby in the house, but I didn't want to bring out the stroller or baby sling. I ended up just holding Fynn and holding Zo's leash with the same hand that supported Fynn's butt. It was a little awkward, but it worked. Luckily Zoey is easy-going so she wasn't pulling or running. She just went out and did her business. Later I'm going to have to take her for a walk... which could be an adventure of its own! It's just little things like this that stress me out. I don't have routines in place for dealing with situation yet and I'm the type of person that stresses about unknown situations. Give me a week and we'll be all set. 

My biggest issue with being alone with the baby is that I just don't feel comfortable yet. I don't always know what she needs. Thank God we figured out the whole breastfeeding thing (I have a whole post about this that will be out... probably tomorrow) last week while Drew was home. I can't even imagine trying to take care of Fynn on my own while still dealing with the breastfeeding struggles we had the first week and a half! 

Well, it's 9:30 am... so far so good. We're up. Baby's been fed. Dog has been out. Mom had a donut :) 


  1. Do you have a Snugglie or baby sling of some sort? That would be a lifesaver for walking the dog. My girls both lived in their Snugglies for the first three months. Everywhere we went I carried them in that so I could still have my hands available. If you don't have one, I HIGHLY recommend having Drew pick one up on his way home from work. I believe in it that much!

    Good luck today. I'll be thinking of you while I'm in my Singapore Math training.

  2. I can't believe I missed the announcement that she is here! Congratulations!
    And I am so happy that you are breastfeeding. Big advocate here! If you ever need support, please let me know!

    I remember feeling so "fish out of water" in the beginning. I was terrified of being home alone with her. But that's all normal and natural. You are her mommy, trust yourself!

  3. I didn't really enjoy breastfeeding. Anyway, I am your newest follower from GFC hop. Love for you to stop by Naptime Review and return the follow. Hosting facebook hop later tonight. Love for you to link up your page.
