Today is my last full day, just the babe and me, of my maternity leave. It's bittersweet. I know that my little one will have an amazing time at daycare, if our third and final visit was anything to go by. For me, this is a reminder that I will be going back to work and my carefree baby and mama days are at an end. From now on everything will be intruding into our lives; from work, to friends, to family, to daycare, and it will never again be so easy as it was when we had a full year to be just us two, and daddy every once and awhile. I am going to miss it, and I know tears will be shed. However, this means that the next steps of our babes life are coming up. She is already walking around a bit, from couch to couch, from kitchen fridge to cabinets. I am so proud of her and all of her accomplishments and I love being able to see her develop and grow. Those are the moments I will miss the most when I am back at work, when she would all of a sudden do something she had never done before, just for me, and I get to clap for her and cheer and run to the computer to email daddy so he doesn't miss a beat (sometimes with a photo of the event attached). It will be a lot to learn to let go; and, where my days will be filled with waiting until I can pick her up, her days will be filled with fun, laughter and other children to help her grow, socialize, and build her personality (which is already plucky and amazing).
