Tonight, mommy and daddy went on a date. We left you will Lolli and Pop and there’s no doubt they did a wonderful job. I know that date nights are good but I felt selfish for leaving you.
We were away from you for a little over 3 hours. That’s 3 hours of cuddles I missed!
People keep saying I’m “spoiling” you by holding you so much but I don’t see it that way. There was an entire week when you were in the hospital that I didn’t get to hold you at all. Plus, I wasn’t able to hold you after you were born because you thought sats of 67% were okay. Then, when we were in the NICU, I was only able to hold you while your sheets were changed. It was a very awkward hold! I was first able to REALLY hold/cuddle you on February 1st. That was 19 days after you were born! So, I don’t look at it as spoiling you. I look at it as making up for time I wasn’t able to hold you!
Coming up, you’ll have to be in the hospital again and there will be a couple days I won’t get to hold you. So, I’m making up for that time, too. 😉
Fortunately, this next time you should recover faster!
I was thinking about the day we brought you home tonight. I was so excited. It was one of the best days ever. When they finally discharged us you were already in the car seat. Waiting for dad to get the car felt like forever!
Having you home has been the greatest because I can hold you whenever I want, which means you basically get held 24/7.
So, I may be spoiling you, but you deserve it!
I love you, Baby Bear!
