A New Year – Letter to Husband

Dear Craig;

I have no more surgery related letters to write. You have recovered nicely and developed a nice hitch in your walk. I do hope that goes away because your ass just does not shake the same when you are walking. I still watch though, in hopes that your old shake will re-appear.

January is a good month for us. It was during the month of January that we met for the first time. Our first meeting was really our first date because we both offically stopped looking and focused on eachother. It’s true, from that first meeting we both knew that this was it. There were no fireworks, in fact, just the opposite. And it was in those quiet non fireworks moments that we knew.

Aside from the year that we married, this is going to be one of the biggest years for us. Definitly the one with the most change. At least this is what I understand from all those books and internet sites that I have been reading. Apparently babies are alot more work than any dog or cat living in our happy home. Who knew? Apparently there is no such thing as “free feeding” when it comes to babies. No leaving the bottle full all the time and letting baby help herself. But I think that we will really excel at this parenting thing once we finally get the hang of it. I’m looking forward to the “sleep when baby sleeps” thing that all the books advise us to do. Hmmm, guess we may need that maid a bit longer.

I have never doubted that this was what we were meant to do. Meet, get married, grow up and have children together. Maybe not quite in that order… it may go more like this: Meet, get married, have children together, (be forced to) grow up. I have never doubted that it was going to fun and so far it really has been. Even through all of the trying, we managed to keep our sense of humour and find the funny magical moments in all of our despair. We can honestly say that we know that making love or having sex is totally different from Baby Dancing… and I am okay with that (now).

So Baby, I cannot wait to share the next step of our Amazing Race… the dirty diapers, the late night feedings, the crying, but also the giggles, the laughter and the cuddles. This is what our life was meant to be.

I love you and can’t wait to see what else 2006 has in store for us.

Love Nic.

Damn – no free feeding. Oh well – we’ll get by.

I think 2006 will be a great, great year for us, my love.

the free feeding works for pets & hubbies !!! just leave a bottle or dish of something out and I bet it disappears!! Always did in our house !!
consider the possibility that free feeding could also apply as an alternative to more expensive (formula’s)
is great comfort for babies and they say more beneficial for both of you as well… even if only for a short time.

in thinking back….
a good combination of bottle & breast feeding really worked for us
I had a good excuse to get out of other jobs & things when I wanted to, a good excuse to just sit and cuddle & rock (which reminds me.. I always felt that was one of the most important possessions with a new born, a really good comfortable rocking chair)
and your good ole unc would take over bottle duty lots of nights when I just needed that little extra sleep
