We just got home from the airport after sending daddy off on his business trip. You were a very good boy while we were out and fell asleep in your carrier just before we left the airport. When we got home, I wasn’t in the best of moods, knowing that we have to wait till Friday to see daddy again, but you were extra cheerful and that made things a little better for me.
You’ve been laughing on and off over the past few days, but each time, it would only be a chuckle or two. It’s such a joy hearing you laugh! Just now, as I was praying with you and singing to you, you were so tickled that you laughed for quite some time. I don’t know what was so funny about my prayer but I just couldn’t help but laugh along with you, because you looked so happy and amused. My heart ached though, wishing that daddy were here at home with us to witness it. He loves you so very much, darling, and I know he’ll be upset that he missed it. You’ll laugh again for daddy when he comes back, right?
Daddy’s been pretty much working from home since he got back from his last business trip, and I’m very thankful that we got to spend some quality time together as a family. We’ve gone on short walks downstairs, brought you out for car rides, read books to you, watched tv while you watched us… It’s so nice watching you interact with daddy. I love seeing how your face lights up when you see him, how you track him with your eyes as he walks around and how you grin that toothless, adorable smile when he talks to you. Daddy won’t be able to spend as much time with you after this trip, and he’ll go on more business trips now and then too, but I know he will do his best to spend time with us whenever possible.
Well, it’s going to be just you and me, baby, for a few days, so be good for mummy, okay?
With all my love, Mummy
