A Note on Fatherhood
I finally got Danielle to go to bed without taking Ethan along. She doesn't let me get up at night for Ethan. She wants me to rest so I can work. But she's doing more work every day than I am. I don't want to see her get frazzled. She needs her rest more than I do.

So tonight I've decided to keep Ethan upstairs with me all night, and I'll sleep as much as I can on the couch. It's hard for me to get to sleep between feedings and changings, but that just means I'll get that much more quality father/son time :)

With any luck, Danielle will sleep through the night, wake up refreshed, and she'll get to enjoy a happy day with our boy.

I love being a dad!

He's so precious and from what Danielle says, your a GREAT Father. I completely understand about the sleeping thing. As a mother its really hard to get sleep even when you know someone else has the baby. After coming home I was in such pain from my c-section that I took a demoral pill and passed out all night. I didnt even know I had a baby in the world. Hubby took care of the baby all night even though it was new to him and he wasnt sure of how to do everything. They made it though, even after she projectile spit up all over him twice.

Thanks for letting me sleep last night, it was a great treat. Sorry I was cranky this morning, you know how I hate to run late for something really important. I hope you were able to catch a few winks of your own. I love you.

Hey, I haven't looked at your livejournal in a long time and remembered it while updating my portfolio and thinking about the dotties & SacWeb... I decided to take a quick peek & see what you're up to... I guess quite a bit! You're now a dad!! I created this LJ acct just to say Congrats!! My wife and I have a baby boy on the way as well, due July 19th! :D
