Parenting after a Loss

First day of work & AWing DS

This was the first time I've ever left DS... He stayed home with Daddy. I'm only working part-time and today was a super short shift (only 3 hours), but I missed him so much!

I left SO a whole page (front & back) of "instructions", like how much BM to give him in a bottle (which was kind of a guess, since he rarely takes one), what his nap schedule was like, how to mix his cereal... 

I was really worried that I would come home to a screaming baby because he is NOT a fan of the bottle, but on my way home, SO sent me this:


My kid, who usually SCREAMS when we try to give him a bottle was happily chugging away and holding it by himself!
