You know what this is?

Proof that I have the BEST husband in the entire universe!

Having a newborn can be really hard. One of the hardest things is getting used to the sleep patterns. Having the energy and will to wake up every time they need you to feed them, change them, etc. Especially when they are as new as Jack and don't quite know the difference between day and night.
PLUS when you already have kids, you don't get to sleep in or take naps when the baby does. Well this morning Lacy and Hugo woke up at who knows what time. I don't know because Shawn jumped right out of bed and shut the bedroom door behind him and let me sleep, undisturbed while he did the morning routine with the 2 older kids. He didn't even wake me to let me know he was leaving. He sent me a text message because he knew I always check my phone for time when I get up.
He left the house to go to his parents then to his brothers to take the kids swimming. Lacy is proof because I would never let her leave the house looking like this. I'm sure mom thought we were crazy. Looking at the picture now, I am seriously teary eyed thinking of my sweet husband loving me so much as to not disturb me to ask me for anything! (Plus, in a kind of rag a muffin way, she looks stinkin adorable!) He just let me sleep as long as Jack and I needed and took the kids all on his own. I feel like a new person, I'm embarrassed to tell you how late I slept.
Mom, you raised Prince Charming, I hope you know that!

By the way that last comment was from me Liz, I guess I was signed in under my husbands account.

Way to go Shawn! I am glad you got some much needed sleep. I feel like a new woman when I am rested. I always worry about what Brett would dress the kids in if I was gone or how crazy Natalie's would be, but then I have to remember that the kids are safe and I am getting a break--who cares what they look like. Lacy didn't seem to mind what she was wearing. Cute picture!
