World's Best Daddy
Everyone so often focuses on what a great job mom is doing with her new baby, but what about dad? I understand that not all men are born to be dads, but my husband was! Brian is an amazing father...Hannah is so blessed! I knew Brian would be a great dad before I even became pregnant. To be able to withstand 2 years of trying to conceive (okay, I realize that trying to conceive isn't too tough on a man! haha), to endure my horrible pregnancy (countless nights of me waking him up, asking him to get me something to eat or drink), to be by my side the entire time I labored naturally (he didn't sit down all day!), and now to be willing and eager to take care of Hannah whenever he can. What more could I ask for?
In the hospital, when I was recovering, Brian changed every single diaper, swaddled Hannah every time, rocked her when she was fussy, took her back and forth to the nursery so I could attempt to sleep, and was my rock emotionally. He did all that without one complaint! I don't even remember him saying that he was tired (which, if you know Brian, is very unlike him). I don't know how I could have managed without him! I couldn't even get out of the bed without help (so much for a natural labor being so easy to bounce back from).
But even more important than all the physical stuff he does for me and Hannah, it is the love that I see in his eyes that gets me every time! He is SO in love with his little girl. He can't wait to get home from work just to spend a few hours with her.
I am so blessed and so thankful. The Lord obviously hand-picked Brian to be my husband! He knew what He was doing!
So, if you have a husband that is just as great as mine, go thank him. He deserves it!
