Do you all feel a physical...sort of emptiness, an ache, when your babes aren't attached or nearby? I can't imagine how I'll ever want to be farther than a room away from him. I don't at all feel the desire some of you have expressed to have baby-free time. He's too far away even when DH holds him while I shower! Yes, I'd like to be able to put him down long enough to get a clean shirt over my head, but that's about it. Anything else....well, it feels like someone cut out my lung and now I'm supposed to go on without it. He just feels so much a part of me!
I feel both at the same time. :) Yesterday I went to the chiro while my mom watched LO. It was a very, very quick trip. It was the first time I drove by myself and it felt very lonely. O and I usually listen to the radio and sing crappy pop songs "together".
