<p>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?</p>

<p>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. </p>

Same with our little guy! DH and I are so much more in tune now than before; he is so helpful, supportive, and appreciative:) </p>

<p>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!!!</p>

<p>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?<span><img alt="duck.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/duck.gif"></span> lol!)</p>

I'm with you!  Here's a recent evening conversation with my husband:</p>
<p>Me:  I'm so excited about tomorrow.</p>
<p>Him:  Why?</p>
<p>Me: Because I have a baby!</p>

<p>I just joined this site, but my daughter was born the day before yours! </p>
