Last time I posted about my husband, Ian, a couple of you mentioned that you'd love to see more of his outfits.
He thinks that's funny since he was wearing his "scrubs" in most of the pics (basketball shorts, tees, and slippers).
But since I think he has great style and love getting inspiration for him, I talked him into sharing some of his style with the rest of you : )
On the topic of my husband, one of my biggest fears with having a baby was that I'd love him less.
That all my attention and affection would be for my new baby.
It seems like that happens a lot, ya know?
I've seen a lot of young moms that seem so completely obsessed with their child (which I totally am by the way...) that the husband is kind of forgotten or something.
So, going into this whole parenting thing I was determined not to let that happen to me.
I believe that the best gift I could ever give my child is a healthy and thriving relationship between his parents and that needs to start the minute he is born if we ever want it to work!
I'm already feeling like I'm loving on Greyer so much that I end up giving my leftovers to Ian if anything at all.
The good news is that these pictures were taken on our date night a couple days ago. We'd only been parents for four days, but figured the sooner we left Greyer, the easier it would be to make time for each other in the future. So we left Greyer with my mom for an hour and headed to the cafe around the corner and talked about Greyer the whole time. I even cried because I missed him so much... hahaha.
Anywho, all that to say that I am starting a "project" today, to help love my husband better and never let that passion die.
Every Monday, for the next year, I will refer to a chapter in this book (don't mind the hideously cheesy cover) to guide me in specific ways to do so.
And I will be sharing those with you each week to keep me accountable!
If you have a significant other in your life, will you join me?
Even if you don't have a baby, our men always desire to be noticed and respected by his wife.
This week's chapter is called "The Recharger Box". All about how our husbands need to find rest in their wife. The author jokes that most men go to box-shaped things to recharge when he feels stressed out (i.e. the T.V., newspaper, garage, Xbox, the bed...)
The wow assignment this week is to find out what your husband's favorite easy box is and free him up to do whatever he wants. You could make it extra special by serving him breakfast in bed one day with a little thank you note for all he does and maybe even a gift card of some sort to push him to actually take the day off from the honey-do list-- guilt free!
This is going to be hard for me as we are only entering into week two of having a baby and I feel like I need all the help/extra arms I can get in order to get anything done myself.
This'll be good for both of us though because the more rested he is, the less stressed he will be, and the better he can help me and love me in the ways that I need too!
P.S. Birth story coming tomorrow!
