Leaving my baby behind...

Okay, so, it's T minus 8 hours til' I leave for Vegas and I knew there was one more thing I needed to do before I left....Blog! I'm off. Well, to bed that is. I need some sleep as I am getting up at 5am to head to the airport. Alexa's wedding is Saturday and tomorrow night a bunch of us girls are going out on the town. Although, I'm not sure how much out on the town I'll be able to take considering I'll be the only one on East Coast time and I'll have gotten up at 5am. We'll see. Gabe and I went on a date tonight. We saw "Bourne Ultimatum." It was awesome-especially if you've seen the other 2. Then we had dinner and went to pick up Maddie from her grandparents house. She was fast asleep and still woke with a smile for me :) I changed her diaper when we got home and got teary eyed. If you're a mom, you will understand. My daughter is 10 months old now, a real person, who can make me belly laugh from her silliness; she is also my best friend with whom I spend every day. I don't think I know how to be away from my best friend for 3 days and nights. I know we will both survive it, and one of us won't ever remember it, but it was a thought that came to mind. She is in charge of my days-without her, what will I do?
On the other hand, I'm excited. I can't wait to see people I haven't seen in forever and also have some "me time" at the spa on Saturday. The wedding will be a beautiful celebration and I get to be some of my favorite peeps in the world. So, I'm off. I promise pictures and lots of words when I return. Adios!!!

It sounds like you will all have a great time. If you read this before you go please tell everyone "hi!" and Alexa congratulations.

It's not the same I know... but for me it's always so hard to leave the cats behind when we go on vacation even though we know that they will be just fine so I know how you are feeling. I think once you get there and you are having the best time you will know everything will be just fine.

Go have fun! This will only happen once so live it up! (Alexa's wedding of course, I'm sure they'll be more vacations sans baby) ;)
