Separation anxiety is really interesting. I got my little babycenter.com update a few weeks ago saying that it would be happening and it definitely is. I hear "mama!!!" more now than ever. I'm doing a good job at telling him what I'm doing when I leave one room to go to the next, which has been a little helpful in easing his stress but tears usually follow.
Yesterday Wes and I went to see that James Bond movie. I'm sure it's been out for awhile now, but when you don't get to see movies that often you kind of lose track of those things. The showing times were 10 am, 4 pm, and 10 pm. hmm... 4 pm it is! So, I asked my spunky little friend Sarah if she could watch Eli when she got home from work! She said yes so off we went. We did the quick but definite goodbye with Eli, Sarah said he got a little sniffly but was fine... she just couldn't really take him by the front door or he would get sad again! hahaa.. how cute! (thanks for lovin on him Rah Rah!)
So, we're trying to do what we need to do to make Eli feel supported but still allow him to know that he is ok even though mom or dad isn't right in the room with him.
I love every single stage that he has gone through. He has been such an easy and fantastic baby that it makes me kind of nervous about the next one. (I'm not pregnant by the way)
