hubby blues

Russ went back to work today... it was a good 3 week run.

while Russ was home i changed 3 total diapers.
he perfected his "burp excavator" dance -- and i died laughing.
Hayes fell asleep every time Russ took a shower with him.
he rubbed my shoulders through every painful feeding.
went to every billirubin test, stayed with Hayes during his snip-snip surgery.
made me laugh when i wanted to cry.
we miss him something terrible.

I understand how you feel. :( Glad he got to stay with you for 3 weeks!

I just got caught up and I'm sobbing. At work. But it's nothing out of the ordinary.

Congrats.

He's beautiful. You're beautiful.

Ok, I love your blog, i don't even know how i found it, but you crack me up. Did you say that Russ and Hayes took showers together?! I didn't know we could do that! We just had a baby, too! and I had no idea we could shower with them this young...so excited.

It was wonderful to see you all last weekend! I wish for you the luxury of having Russ home for 3 weeks every time a new baby comes to your home. What a wonderful Daddy he is! Love to all of you!

I hear ya! Husbands are wonderful, aren't they? It's always hard to get back into "reality" but you will get into your own routine and it will be really fun to look forward to when he gets home from work!

OK, so I'm a TOTAL Ruffling Feathers stalker. I LOVE reading your blog. The first thought that ran through my head while reading "hubby blues" was "Hayes is 3 weeks old already! Holy balls!" Like he's a dear, dear friend of mine and I've just been so enamored with him these past few weeks I've lost track of time. :-) Thanks for letting us take this journey with you. Many prayers for both you AND RUSS as you adjust to life with Daddy back at work.

I cried the whole day that chad went back to work after I had Gavin, it is hard. But luckily Russ is self employed and can come home whenever he wants. Yeah!

I need to come visit you and see how much he's grown! Sorry Russ (and Shawn while I'm at it) can't just retire and stay home and have fun with the kiddies!
