I wake up thrilled and even a little surprised to have a baby! It's like I keep waking up expecting it to be a dream. I wanted her for so so long, I can't believe we actually made a person. Am I the only one who is still weepy when I think about it?
When I first got pregnant I was so scared. Babies don't fix relationships and DH and I were teetering on an edge. He was so attentive to my needs while I was pregnant and he's such a loving daddy. I catch him gazing while I nurse Lila. He thanks me for taking such cuch good care of his baby. Like I'm really doing him a favor. She really has brought us (and our family unit) closer together.

Same with our little guy! DH and I are so much more in tune now than before; he is so helpful, supportive, and appreciative:)
Every morning, Caden wakes up smiling, delighted with life. And DH and I just lie there, cuddling and smiling with him, so happy!! And at random moments, I'll look at my LO in awe. I'm actually a mommy! I have a baby and he is amazing! Wow!!!

YES! I totally still think these things everyday. She is my second and our little surprise and I am so in awe of her and can't imagine how we lived without her and her beautiful smile that lights up our days. I really feel as well that she brought us so much closer as a family, she's just so full of life and happiness. DP has been almost saintly and is such a great involved daddy and the most supportive spouse. I guess you could say that every morning I wake up grateful for my life. Things couldn't be better (why do I get the feeling the other shoe is going to drop soon? lol!)
I'm with you! Here's a recent evening conversation with my husband:
Me: I'm so excited about tomorrow.
Me: Because I have a baby!
I just joined this site, but my daughter was born the day before yours!
