Abuelita and Grandpa (Peter's parents) came for a short visit as Bobby was waking up for lunch. So they witnessed our little one pee on himself, get changed into his third onesie of the day, and have his bottle. It was a short visit, but a nice one. I know they were really excited to see him at home and they cant wait until Maya is home with him. Then, we went for our little walk. Isnt he cute in his carrier?
I love the mei tai. I had initially bought them because they were the only carrier I found that got great reviews for doubling for twins (you can either back/front them or put one of each side). But after using it today, it is worth its weight in gold! Bobby was fighting sleep, so I put the he and the carrier on (which was a breeze) and he was asleep in minutes. He was snug enough that I could use my hands (although I found myself keeping that one hand on him (more for me, I think... this still doesnt feel real...) Same thing for the walk. He felt very secure and was out like a light before I left the driveway. I just came inside and put him in the cradle. He didnt even stir when I moved him from the carrier. It is just so easy... A++!
I realized today that I didnt take his hospital bracelet off last night. My mother-in-law saw it when I was changing his diaper and I cut it off then. There's a part of me that thinks they are going to come and take him away. That I couldnt possibly be lucky enough to have him home. There are other fears... That something will happen to Maya... I've never gone this long without seeing her and it is killing me. Peter was there twice today but I havent seen her since 5pm last night. I've never gone this long without seeing her. Not one day. We wanted to wait for the maiden voyage with Bobby to be when both of us could be there, since we werent sure how he would handle sitting in the carrier, needing to eat, needing changed, etc. Peter is helping a friend move today, so we decided we'd wait and go when he gets back, rather than me going alone with Bobby. It is so hard. I've called and she is fine, but it is still heartbreaking to have her there.
Well, my little Chipmunk is stirring... (and it is so cute!)
