Back to Work

I've been working as much as possible pretty much since Bryce was born but today I left him home with his Daddy to go to work...all day. I was actually kind of excited. To be something other than a bottle getter and diaper changer.

But then this morning I walked over to say goodbye to Bryce and nearly changed my mind. I knew it was something I had to do sooner or later though. And I reminded myself that moms all over have to do this every single day. I'm so blessed to have the flexibility to be able to work and be a mom, sometimes at the exact same time. So I put on my big girl panties and walked out that door.

It was a long day and despite knowing that Bryce was home with the person who loves him second most in this world (not even his Daddy can love him as much as I do!) I worried incessantly. Caleb and Bryce skyped me at work around lunch time and you think that would make it easier but it only made it harder. Seeing that sweet face reacting to my voice made me miss him all that much more.

Eventually the day had passed and it was time to visit with Bryce's beautiful girlfriend before heading home. Seeing the ever-sweet Adelyn almost made missing my Bryce all day worth it!

Tomorrow is our big neurosurgery follow up visit. And Bryce's first MRI. The radiologist actually had the nerve to call me today to say that I can't feed Bryce for four hours before the appointment BUT should bring him in sleepy or sleeping in order to avoid sedation and to get it done as quickly as possible. Nothing like putting pressure on a mom to starve her baby for a few hours and then try to get him to sleep perfectly still in a tunnel surrounded by strangers. Come on, man.

Wish us luck and we'll let you know how it goes!


  1. You may already be through it all, but good luck!!! I'm still shaking my head at what the radiologist told you. He must not have kids! I hope it is as painless as possible for both Bryce and you. Adalyn and I can't wait to hear how well her little boyfriend is doing!

    All our love,
    Mary and Adalyn

  2. I hope Bryce is doing well. We have been wondering when he will be able to have visitors.

  3. Ok so how is everything going? Did you make it through a day of work? lol I know it is hard, totally stinks to leave him home. So now why does your update only say something about being at the neurosurgeons? I hope everything is ok...let us know. Hope you guys had a wonderful holiday weekend. You deffinitley have a wonderful blessing to be thankful for. Give Bryce a kiss from us.
