All Good Things Must Come to an End...

Daddy and Baby G:

I had to pump a bit because my milk production was way too active at first. Here's C giving G some milk--he wasn't too into it, but we'll try again later:

At the end of my pregnancy I was so looking forward to finally having my new baby boy and my husband all to myself. C hadn't taken any time off since starting his job a year and a half ago and so he was taking a two week paternity leave.

We love spending time together, especially when we don't have to do anything but talk and cuddle and share yummy food.

We spent the time staring at our new little boy and making plans for our future as a family of five. C cooked some, I did some baking but mostly we just snuggled and rested. We had both wanted to start watching Mad Men, and so we watched the first season during our time together. 

The two weeks were leisurely and mellow, but the days and then weeks passed by very, very quickly. Before I knew it, it was time for C to go back to work. Yesterday was his first day back and it was hard to say goodbye in the morning. 

I'm sad that Baby G and I don't have Daddy all to ourselves anymore but I am grateful for the time we got to spend together getting to know our sweet little guy.
