Things are going great. Nothing has really changed since she came along. He works a lot though so i miss him and wish he could be home with us more but bills need to be paid and he wants me to be a sahm so that means he has to work a lot.

DH and I are better than ever, although we do miss the physical part of our relationship at this point. But, we spend as much tome together alone as possible with a newborn. We are looking forward to the next phase in our life, which is watching the kids grow up, me graduating from school and getting a job, and working on our home.

Not bad but feeling the difference between it just being the two of us to being the three of us. Find from time to time the tiredness can make him overly soft of her, i.e. caving on decisions we made for the sake of easiness, and overly harsh with me 'it's 'cos your not feeding her enough'!

So we adopted the mantra 'consistent with her, considerate with me'. LOL. It seems to have worked a little!

So, we're doing ok and he's a great dad, but we certainly have our moments!

Things have been a little more stressed, but it's not because of Gabby really. We moved when she was 2 weeks old and before that we were staying it a hotel suite waiting for our house to be ready. There's also been the usual drama associated with our teenagers, so that doesn't help. Things seem to be calming a bit finally.

Ugh, its been a little rough. Nothing to do with the baby though. More about his school and work. He has been having bouts of anxiety and its leading to depression. When he perks up a bit out of it, our relationship is fine. But I'm kind of at my breaking point with the "understanding wife" role. I know getting short with him is just going to make it worse, but I'm starting to really resent him and its hard. This parenting gig is suppose to be a two man job...

Our relationship is the strongest it has been since we first started dating! However, I think that has to do with us moving in the beginning of February into our own home together. We lived together in our own place when Leila was first born but that was in a craptastic apartment with a sex offender below us. It wasn't something that made us feel happy with life at all. Then we moved in with his family for 3 years and that really made things hard as well. This new place is really great and we are settling into our roles as a family of 5 well. Our connection is great, fights are down, etc. It is nice.

Overall we are good but with being exhausted like most of the mommies we have our ups and downs since Tristan is home. I just find I have alot less patience and it bothers me that my husband doesn't react fast enough or I have to ask him to do what i consider sometimes the obvious. what I miss most is sleeping in and cuddling with my hubby... maybe in a few months when we are able to get our baby in his own crib without freaking out.

It's going alright. I wouldn't say its been terrible although I don't consider anything with my hubby terrible. He is managing well as a Father of 2. I will miss him when he leaves for Warrant Officer school but I think I will do just fine. I think we are doing good so far.

Things between DH and I are great. We haven't been able to be intimate since 6 weeks after DS was born I had to have a biopsy from an irregular Pap test I got when I was still pregnant. The biopsy came back bad so two weeks later I had a LEEP procedure & told to wait 2-4 weeks for sex. I'm just hoping things in that department are all ok after the LEEP. I've read some horrible stories on the web. Today I've been sick vomiting & he's been taking great care of me & the kids.

My doctor's office called today & said everything they sent to the labs came back "as expected" meaning I don't need any further treatment. They are just going to watch me a little closer. I think I had food poisoning the other day. It only lasted the day at least!

It was awful after DD was born, but this time he is much more helpful and attentive thank God.
