I miss my little girl.
Of course I knew we would, but I had kind of thought that it would mainly be my wife. I can't put my finger on what it is that I miss. I just really, really look forward to seeing her again.
I heard her voice on the phone tonight, and got some pictures of her last night. She is changing so fast now that it is just unbelievable.
Not that we are not enjoying life. We are. This is actually something we needed. A break. It wasn't necessary in order to get us to appreciate our little girl. No, we needed this time just for ourselves. And we have been using it well. Tending to us. Lots of hugging and kissing. And just lying and staring into the sky. It doesn't hurt that my wife is still only working 8 to 4. She won't go back into her regular, insane schedule until late June. So this is a second honeymoon, of sorts.
After that, I will be mostly alone with my little girl again.
