Parenting is stressful. However, it really has the power to draw you closer to your spouse. Last night, I pulled my first ever all nighter. Callie would not sleep...period. Dave really came along beside me taking turns with caring for her, changing her diaper, etc. He even stayed in the nursery and talked to me as I was feeding her. As we wearily crawled into bed at various intervals, we just hugged one another and drew strength from that. Dave stayed up with her for over an hour just trying to comfort her, while I did not sleep, but laid in bed listening to her cries. I finally was able to sleep around 3 hours starting at 5am. I am signing off now because Dave is really wanting me to take a nap while its quiet here. So, as I end this...I'm very thankful for my husband who supports and comes along side me as we enter this journey of two children. I can't imagine life without him and I am so glad that we are a team.
