Guys, Please Take Note...

Last night my husband gave me the best gift he possibly could give in the whole entire world and made me the happiest wife ever.  I am still beaming about it this morning. 

So, what was this magnificent gift?


A full night's sleep!


For the first time since Emily arrived I slept more than three consecutive hours.  Shawn woke up both times Emily did during the night.  Changed her.  Fed her.  And put her back to sleep.  He did all that all the while telling me to stay in bed and relax, which, of course, I did.  So, now he has a wonderfully happy and energized wife who is singing his praises.  Seriously, every husband needs to do this for his sleep deprived wife so guys, take note.  



Also, I should mention...


Little Miss Emily is 5 weeks old today!  And Sutton, our black lab, is her biggest fan.  Seriously, they are going to be best of friends some day.  He loves her.

That's wonderful! I hope my husband gives me that wonderful gift when he finally gets home. Then again, by the time he gets home, 2.0 might allow me that full night's sleep anyhow. :-) Enjoy being well-rested!

Yay for well-rested mamas! And there is nothing I love more than when dogs and babies are bff. I can't wait for Mac to meet our little man! :)

Wonderful!

My husband is a night owl, so I pumped after a few feedings every day to make a bottle for him and he took the feeding between midnight and 1 am for me for months so that I could sleep for 4 hours straight a night. It was his cuddle time with The Cub. He really missed it when that feeding went away.
