Birthday Blessings

Last night I woke up at about 11:50 P.M. about an hour after I went to bed to a groaning baby.  I couldn't take it.  I was exhausted.  I yelled for my husband who was still up working to come change the baby.  He didn't hear me so I got really angry.  There is something about the middle of the night that just pulls the grouchy out of me.  I fed the baby.  Changed the baby.  Got him back to sleep and put myself into a grouchy state of slumber.

I woke up this morning to my phone ringing and looked at the time 8:45 A.M.  I sprung into action. I asked my husband what he was still doing here and he was late to work.

Then my lovely man explained he took the day off to watch the baby and keep me company.  A big thing for a newly unworking Mom who does get a little bored at times without adult interaction.  Then he proceeded to make me the most melt in your mouth caramel soy latte and french toast.  Happy Birthday to me!

I am now sitting here with a baby playing under his Baby Einstein play mobile thing and a husband working quietly on the couch next to me on his laptop with our Yorkie curled up on the top of the couch soaking up the little bit of warmth coming through the window.

My husband apologized and said he has been so busy with work and baby and life and house shopping that he didn't pick out a present for me yet and needed to go shopping.  Only the best present I could ever ask for is this moment right here right now.

(For all my bloggy friends here is one of my favorite wedding pictures of us leaving the ceremony headed to the reception.  A lovely picture by the talented Phil Paik).
