My Longest Trip Away From Baby

I travel quite a bit. More than I’d like, but I’ve never been gone this long.

4 1/2 days. I know it’s not extreme, but I still feel like I have a newborn who needs me.

Tonight, I got to chat with her on the phone and it is amazing how she responds. She absolutely knows it is me and responds with such happiness seeing me. She even talked back. (We say “yah-yah-yah” in a hushed whisper back and forth.)

Oh, I miss her!

Luckily, little Lou is surrounded by her daddy and family and I know she is in the best care. I also feel lucky to be able to do this with amazing technology where I can see her face and she can see mine to make these trips a little easier. Amazing.
