Day 9 - All by ourselves

My mom went home this afternoon. I cried. This made her cry. I'm so thankful for everything that they've done to help us and a thank you card can't really express our gratefulness. So, I was crying. I'm actually crying while typing this.

Bob has been talking to a co-worker of his that told him that she cried a lot when she was finally alone with her baby. He was actually expecting this. Probably more because he knows me than because of her warning. (I always cry when my parents leave after a visit.)

I'm not sad, though. I just want to cry. I don't know if you can call this the "baby blues" or not. We'll see if I cry more tonight. (Probably will when my mom calls and then again when I attempt to write a thank you note to them.)

The good news is my tears do not seem to affect Little Elvis. He just smiled and cooed while my mom and I cried.

Are you guys crying a lot? I hope this is normal.

It is always sad to see family leave. My mom lives far away and I am always sad when it is time for her to head home. I hate that she misses out on seeing the kids grow up too!! We do webcam often. Do you have webcam?

We don't have webcam, but Bob recently discovered a video hosting site called photobucket.com that we plan on using. We bought a digital camcorder just in time for Little Elvis' birth.
