I am so thankful for Alma

I can not stop thinking about how grateful and blessed I am for my wonderful Husband!
He has helped me out with so much during the first six weeks that Kaitlyn was here!

First, getting through Labor and the "Unexpected Natural Delivery"

I know I could not have made it through that without him. He helped me so much when we were in the hospital telling me that everything was going to be OK when everything seemed to be going wrong.

Playing card games that he made up... trying to keep my mind off the contraction.

I know that having Kaitlyn natural would have been so much harder if he wasn't there holding my hand and dabbing my face with a wet towel, keeping me calm and cool.
He was such a great supporter through the whole thing and he never freaked out or "tossed his cookies." I needed him to be strong for me and it was so great to know that he was there 100%. He stayed so calm through the whole thing which made it so much easier for me.

Also, recovering and moving.

He was such a great help making sure that we were moving and helping me take care of all the last minute items like "forwarding our mail to our Texas address" and all those little things that seem to POP up right before you move.

He was so helpful while I was recovering, always making sure I was alright and that I was recovering the way that I should. There was a lot of times when I was so exhausted and he just made sure that I was getting rest that I needed.

It was so helpful to have him home and not having to run off to work or go to school for the first 6 weeks Kaitlyn was born. I feel so blessed that we had that time together. He was so awesome during those six weeks and I can't thank him enough for all the help that he gave me.

He would bring Kaitlyn to me when she needed to eat and then he would take care of her, burp her, play with her, even CHANGE HER!! and put her to bed while I would rest. I am in awe of how wonderful and caring he was and continues to be.

Even now that his internship has started, he still finds the time to help me bathe her every night and get her ready for bed.

He always gets puts the car seat in the car and gets it out for me... which if you know my car, it is tiny and harder than it looks and carries the car seat when we go out places 'cause he is so much stronger than me.

I am so grateful for his love to me and Kaitlyn and we are truly blessed to have him in our lives. He is such a great husband and father and I can not express enough how grateful I am for him and his service to me.

Thank you Alma.
