2 more Long weeks.

Angela's mom with Maizey in the Hospital.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and well wishes.

Angela will be leaving tomorrow to go to Portugal. I wasn't sure in all of the confusion if Maizey and I would be going with her or not. We were invited to join the family, but in the end, I decided that I didn't want to risk taking a 7 week old baby with no vaccinations on a plane, to a whole other country. I briefly considered leaving her here with family, but that thought did not last long, as I could not bare the thought of being without her for 2 weeks. I can't even think about leaving her for one night never mind.
Amidst the confusion of the decision making, we thought it was best to get our passports just in case. I picked them up today. It was weird. The guy at the passport office asked me if I was picking up the passport for myself. I replied to him that it was for Myself and "my daughter". I think that was the first time I said that out loud to someone who I don't know. "MY DAUGHTER". I like that.
It will be a long two weeks as a single mother.
On the positive side, Maizey has been sleeping better at night, and we have got her into her own crib for the most part. She sleeps well in her own room, in her crib. Last night she slept for 5.5 hrs straight through, until she woke for a bottle. She then fell back asleep for 3 hours and then another bottle, and then sleep for 2 more hours. When I went in to get her at 8:30 this morning, she smiled at me. a GREAT BIG GOOD MORNING SMILE!

Aw that picture is so sweet and so sad at the same time.

I think staying home will probably be easier, although it'll be hard to be without your partner.
