Baby Blues

My wife and I had to go through the toughest day in our short time of being parents: dropping our 4 month old off at daycare for the first time. We've been used to him being with one of us for 24 hours a day (ok, I admit mostly my wife- but not by choice). Now, maybe we are over-reacting a little bit, but we feel a little jealous that someone else gets to spend time with him everyday and watch him experience new things. We do have the luxury of having him close by, so that if either one of us wants to visit him during lunch it's an easy trip (and something we have already taken advantage of), but it's still tough to walk out of that in the morning. We definitely appreciate the nights and weekends we have with him even more, if that's even possible.

Anyone else had to go through this recently? Any advice for a couple of new parents going through this?
