Mr. Howard had to go back to work for the first time today! He is going to work a few days this week (getting his plans, vendor contacts, employees caught up) and then he has been assigned a Special Project later in the week that we couldn't pass up. He'll be off again while his family is in town. Working the extra days this week also gives him a whole extra week's vacation (we can use it later on in my six weeks off or we can save it for the holidays).

To be honest, I was a little nervous about spending the day by myself. Mr. Howard and I have a great teamwork thing going and we've been allowing each other to take naps (we tried taking a nap together, but inevitably Connor cries or coos and I spend the nap time feeding or comforting him). But, my nerves were quelled by Mr. Howard's sadness. He so did not want to leave Connor today and I feel blessed that I have another 4 weeks to be by his side!

Way to go Momma! I am excited for you and Connor to have your bonding time, but I am sad that Mr. Howard has to go back to work. It is nice that he'll have more time to be at home in the near future. Let me know if there is ANYTHING you need...I am always here for you guys! :)...D

That first day solo is always a bit unnerving, but somehow once it gets going it isn't so bad. I wish the men could take the six weeks, too. They deserve it, we deserve to have them with us, as does the baby. I mean I know they didn't do all the hard part (pregnancy, labor and such), but they do their fair share of hard work in other ways. Yeah for awesome husbands/daddies!

I am sure you have your support team in place, but feel free to get in touch if you need anything.
