Update on the Separation Anxiety

Here’s a little update on how Melody has been doing with her separation anxiety. This past Sunday I told Melody that she gets 2 kisses, a hug, and a good-bye, then we were going to the service, and coming back to pick her up. We do get pagers in case anything happens and they need us to come (I don’t think they’ve ever had to use the pagers before), but I left service a few minutes early to check on her anyhow. I need to keep my sanity somehow. She was fine, but because they had changed the room around, and she was standing on the loft, she could see over the short wall and saw me when I peeked in. I was going to head back out. She only cried for about 5 minutes and then needed someone to hold her, and she was fine. I’m glad to hear that.

On Monday, Jen and Aaron volunteered to babysit so that Norm and I could go out (will blog later). She did cry when we left, but for like 2 minutes or so. It helped that she LOVES Jen and Aaron, and she was at home. I’m really hoping this will be over soon because I’m so not used to having her cry.

  1. Hi thanks for coming to see me for Company Girl Coffee break and sharing a Dr. Pepper at my blog. I love meeting new people I think we can all help each other. I know what yo mean about the seperation anxiety. My 9 month old grandbaby did that at 6 months. He would cry and wail anytime I moved from one spot to another in the same room. And of course the same with his mamma. It was especially hard on daddy and grandpa because they were able to console him. This only lasted a couple of weeks but I am sure we will have another round a little later. Good luck with yours. I know it will get better. Just keep up the good work. And it sounds great that you are leaving her with friends anyway it will help.
    I will visit again.
