First Day Care Experience

Andrew and I attended a friend's wedding in Colorado Springs on Saturday. Day care was provided during the service and, not wanting Oliver to disrupt the ceremony, we took advantage of it. I was so nervous leaving him there--not because I worried the caregiver was inadequate or anything, but because I knew Oliver would freak out. I just hoped he'd calm quickly.

Throughout the ceremony, we could hear (faintly) a "EEEEIIIIEEE!" from day care room behind the main room. Later, our friends assured us they couldn't hear it, but we felt bad anyway. By the time we got to Oliver after the ceremony (approximately one hour), his face was red and swollen from all his crying. Poor baby.
