Last week I thought that each week would get easier and easier in regards to returning to work and leaving Riley for the day. I was wrong. Today was the hardest so far without a doubt. Once I got to work and stopped crying I realized that it is probably because last week I was on an adrenaline high. I was looking forward to seeing friends and co-workers, talking non-stop about Riley, and sharing many, many pictures with everyone. Now this week the 'new-ness' of it all is over and it is just me coming to work, just as I used to. That is what makes it hard.
Today I brought in two of Riley's pictures from her 3-month pictures we had taken on Friday. I can't stop looking at the one - her face all crunched up as she laughs. It melts my heart. I cannot WAIT to get home to see her this evening.
