Day 1 = Success

We're going to label day one of being back to work as a success.  I was a mess in the morning so I went into work extra early so that I could get myself all together before other people came in and that worked out well!  I had a great time talking with my coworkers and having different people stop by my office to welcome me back.  It really made me feel loved.

Jonathan dropped Adalyn off at Ms. Connie's house so that it would be easier on me emotionally.  But just putting her in her car seat was hard!!  Thankfully Ms. Connie is wonderful and I knew that she would be loved on all day.  Around lunchtime, Ms. Connie texted me this cute picture and then called me to let me know that everything was going well and that Adalyn was doing great!

My day flew by between the billion emails and pumping 3 times!  Thankfully I have a private office so I can shut the door and still keep working while I'm pumping.  I can't imagine if I couldn't do that.  I don't think I would have gotten through half of my emails!

At lunchtime, this beautiful arrangement was delivered!  My amazing husband sent it to me. (I know he loves me because he HATES spending money on flowers to be delivered!)

I couldn't wait to go pick my girl up after work! Ms. Connie had her daily report all ready and said she was absolutely perfect (of course I knew this! hehe).  She couldn't believe Adalyn's awesome schedule she's on and how she you could set a clock to her schedule.  She said Adalyn could be a Babywise poster child:)  YAY! Hopefully she'll keep up that easy going demeanor.  Adalyn participated in circle time and even got to see Ms. Connie's puppets and stayed entertained by the two older girls.  One of the girls nicknamed Adalyn Addy-cakes because they were talking about playing patty-cake with her when she's older. Cute!

I received so many thoughtful texts, facebook messages, tweets, calls and blog comments!  I really am blessed.  Thank you all for your prayers.  I'm pretty sure that was the only thing that allowed me to put one foot in front of the other to get myself from my car to my building in the morning!  Now we will see how much easier each day gets...

It does get easier...but you will think about her constantly! I still think about Keagan constantly and have been back to work for quite some time.

Hi Abby, I enjoyed my visit here tonight. I came from Sue's blog. I am taking care of my grand daughter while her mama works and I love it. It was hard for her too but like you she has a good job and she pumps too. I send her pic text during the day. You baby is so cute! Congratulations!
