Ode to my husband...

While you never truly know how you'll react to a situation until you're there, I really did know that Brandyn would be a great Dad. Anyone who's seen B around kids can see how patient, silly, and loving he is with them. In fact... I used to be the "kid" person in my family. Little kids always wanted to play with me... that is... until Brandyn came around... then they found a new "toy."

So long before we were even pregnant, I knew Brandyn would be a great Dad. What I didn't expect, was what a great partner he would be for ME during it all. Amongst many things he does for me, he...
- Wakes up with each middle of the night feeding, changes Andrews diaper, lets me shake off the sleep for a few minutes, and brings Andrew to me for his feeding.
- While I'm feeding, he regularly checks with me to see if I need water, food... or the TV remote!
- Has cooked/prepared more meals in the last few weeks than he has practically in our entire marriage! :)

And so many, many more. Love you Babe!

Our in-laws must have done something right because Bryan was the same way when we had new ones. (He's still great...believe me!)

It's nice when bringing a baby into the mix shows you such a great side of your husband.

Watching my DH nurture me and the baby is a very special and surprising part of parenthood for me too!
