May I gush?

I am so not one to usually gush and go on and on about how wonderful my husband is {although I probably should!}, but tonight I just must.

It's so easy to give our husbands a hard time.  It seems they never do what we want them to do {put the dishes in the dishwasher} unless we ask them {will you please put the dishes in the dishwasher} or constantly nag them {put the dishes in the dishwasher!}.  But these days, I can only sing his praises.

The second pregnancy is funny.  People aren't doting on you like they do with the first.  Maybe everyone just assumes that since you've gone through it once before you must be a pro now.  Well let me tell you, if anything I think the second pregnancy is harder. You're chasing after the result of your first pregnancy all while dealing with an oversized midsection, aching back and swollen feet. Wow, can you tell I'm 36 weeks or what? :)

Back to the point of this post, to brag on B.  These last few days he has been amazing.  Truly amazing. It's like he knows exactly what I need without me even having to ask {oh do I struggle with asking for help!}.  He has been taking G on little outings just the two of them to give me some time to myself.  He has been coming home from work early and going in late to help me with the little man. Monday morning he didn't go in until 10am and let me sleep.  Oh what a gift!  Watching him put G to sleep is one of my favorite things.  I just stare at the two of them on the monitor and smile.  I have to say though it really is the little things.  Like once I'm on the couch in full beached whale mode, he gets up to refill my drink, bring me my phone charger and anything else I need {typically something sweet and fattening}.  My favorite though and what makes me realize why I love him so {and just how truly blessed I am} is every time I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom {which has become three and four times now}, he wakes up and says, "You okay?"  It means so much that he is checking on me and makes me realize I so could not do this without him.  Oh and did I mention, he's even doing the dishes! I am one lucky gal I tell you.  Love you, B!


  1. So sweet! What a great husband you have! We don't give our husbands enough credit I think. Like you said, it is so easy to nag them for what they're not doing... but I've noticed all of our lives are easier if I just am thankful for the things he does do :)

  2. Aww this post is so sweet. My husband do the little things that I don't do. Like charging my cell phone, trhowing the garbage and so many more. Haha. :) By the way,I already followed you via GFC. I hope you can follow back. Come see my blog! let's stay in touch. 
