I'm baaaaaaack!!

Hi folks!! I'm baaaack!~ Yup, unfortunately, I'm back at work and away from little man. He's growing up so fast, I just can't believe it. I look back at pictures I have of him when he is two days old and I can't believe how big he is. It's only been 8 weeks since he was born, but it seems like he's just grown and grown! He's a skinny boy, and we're working on getting meat on those bones.
Yesterday was my first day back and it was definitely rough. Luckily, Phillip brought him to my office for nursing (since my pump was accidentally left in Alabama and I hadn't stored anything up) and I got to snuggle up to him. I never imagined I could love a child so much. I've always loved babies and other people's children, but I really never knew I could feel this. It just makes my day when lil' man giggles at me and coos back at me when I'm singing to him or making silly noises. Even his shrill screams make me love him! And boy, are they ever shrill!! Sheeeeesh! Carter hates being on his back so you can imagine how pleasant changings and bath time go. Holy Hannah. He's definitely got some lung capacity. I've been going on my lunches to nurse him, and I'm gonna have a hard time next week when he starts at the baby-sitter's and I can't go as much. I'm really not looking forward to my case-load picking back up at the office and keeping me busy so that I can't pump or drop in to see him.
We're currently in the process of trying to find different jobs and possibly looking to relocate. It's been a very hard decision for us and it's so much stress. We really need prayers for our little family right now. All of us are feeling a crunch since I went a month without pay and things will be getting worse in the next couple of months for other reasons. We are going through a lot and just really really REALLY need prayers from anyone we can get it from.
I hoped to be able to post pictures today, but I can't find the chord that connects to my computer from my camera. I'll do it as soon as I can though. Thanks for dropping by. Hope to have some good recipes, crafts, and other goodies for you soon.
