So…I have had mixed feelings, initially, about going back to work after being so blessed to have almost 16 amazing weeks with my little guy. It was so amazing to be able to spend so much time with him and to realize everything that he taught me about being a mother. He is such an amazing, peaceful baby that several people have said that I am “just lucky”.
Truthfully, Kevin and I prayed every day of the pregnancy that we would have a sweet, content baby that would know he/she was loved(meanwhile, the entire time hoping that it was a boy). Even during ultrasounds, it was so neat to see how calm he was and instantly realizing that he does not like to be “messed with” when he is content and happy right where he is.
His personality has not changed still to this day. It amazes me how sweet, calm and sometimes very serious he is(between the both of us, he comes by it honestly.
Yesterday, I finally had to go back to work and I was excited to get back into a more structured routine, but I was not sure how I would be able to handle going back to work after baby. But, I was pleasantly surprised that he, mainly I, handle it quite well. I am blessed to have a mother in law that has allowed me to go back to work while she watches Ethan. Even though it is hard, I am trusting that God has a plan for us and that we are able to teach for a reason.
