Most days it's great. On the nights LO is having a rough night sleeping we get short with each other. Mostly because we are so tired ourselves. DH is doing better with stepping in to help with baby duties. Which has been great. When it comes to DTD it's been hard. DH is a little freaked out by breast milk and LO seems to wake up every time we try. I think it's just been bad timing. Sadly it still kind of hurts. I'm hoping that over time it will stop hurting all together. It has gotten better with time.
It really hasn't changed because of jordan.. we appreciate our time together more now but thats only because I'm back in school so we dont see eachother until after 9 most days and then its mostly getting the boys ready for bed and maybe watching a little tv and getting some sleep ourselves but we have saturdays when he gets home from work and all day sunday.. its nice cause we aren't constantly stepping on each others toes but we still have some time.. I thing its perfect.. but of course once I start actual work if everything goes to plan we will have even less time to spend together
Well because of the deployment situation it's different all together...
We got married and he "inherited" Derrick. They got along ok the first eyar and better each year until 2008 when things hit rock bottom. They are still trying to mend their relationship but that is hard when dh is thousands of miles away.
With Xavier dh was gone until he was 3 months old. Then he was only home for r&r(2 weeks) and he helped a lot. When he got home for good Xavier was a little over 6 months old. He helped a ton, infact I just kind of relaxed the first 6 months or so.
With Peyton he was home for the hard part - the first 2 months. He held me when I cried, held Peyton when she cried...etc. Now that he is gone he offers words of support but that is about all he can give now. We will see him in July when Peyton is about 9mos old for 2 weeks then he won't be home until after her 1st birthday...so we are the "exception"...in a way I'm a single mother - but I still depend on my husband for emotional and verbal support.
