Can I just brag on my husband for just a minute?  I'm not sure how any woman can do thing called motherhood alone.  I'm thankful God put such a wonderful man in my life to help me adjust to it.  Here are a few of the things Matt has done to help make motherhood a little easier for me in the last 7 weeks:
  • The first few weeks, I pumped so he could take the first feeding at night.  Allowing me at least a few hours of continual sleep. 
  • Though he had to go back to work soon after, he came home at lunch to let me take a shower.
  • We went to the mall to walk a couple weeks in and he knew I'd been wanting a hair cut.  So he offered to walk Maddie around while I got pampered - his idea.
  • He changes her diapers so I don't have to get out of bed before feeding her.
  • He offers to bottle feed all night on occasion so I can get a full 8 hours of sleep!
  • He works so incredibly hard to provide for us that I don't have to worry about it and can stay home.
  • He didn't complain that it took me 7 weeks to actually cook dinner.
  • And doesn't complain when he has to start laundry because I haven't gotten to it.
  • He walks Mocha in the freezing cold each morning and night so I can stay inside and toasty with our babe.
  • He prays over us each morning before he goes to work and each night before we go to bed.
  • He makes me feel beautiful even though I can't fit into any of my old clothes and quite possibly have spit up on me at all times.
  • He is a great father.  It never gets old to see him loving on our baby girl.
I'm glad I have this man to journey in this life with.
