after waiting at the doctor's office for an hour and a half

you realize how cold 68 degrees really is. you hope that your son's cries during his shots aren't too bad because, for the first time, you forgot to wear nursing pads. you panic that you're doing something wrong because your son weighs 13 pounds and the baby in the waiting room that is one week older than your son weighs 18 pounds. you learn the most horrible sound in the world is hearing your baby scream in pain from his shots. you wish someone had come to the appointment with you so that you could use the restroom. you really wish you were closer to home. you want to cry from realizing how overwhelming motherhood can be.

but then the doctor comes in and tells you to keep doing what you're doing because your son looks great, and everything seems a little better.

He's way better than great. He's just perfect and we miss him so much already.
