So finally we are on the way home. Decided to split the drive into 2 days since we have to stop every 3 hours for Samuel to eat for an hour. I had pumped in hopes that we could speed things up by bottle feeding him in the car but he has apparently decided a bottle is utterly unacceptable in my presence – even if Josh is feeding it to him. I thought that as Samuel has reached 6 weeks it might be nice to pump and let Josh bottle feed him once a day or so, perhaps for one night feeding or during the 4 hours I plan to write, to give them that “intimacy,” but Josh says honestly he doesn’t enjoy feeding Samuel since he hates the bottle so much. He’ll take it begrudgingly if I’m not around. I guess I should be flattered, huh?
We’re hoping to get back to work/writing on Wednesday. Any guesses on how well that will work out?
