Then we had our baby girl in mid April and he really did help out where I wasn't too stressed out about not having family around. It still would have been easier with them since we both weren't getting much sleep, but we survived. Then our son got croup and the following week our baby got RSV, both serious respiratory sicknesses and I was stressing and crying all the time. My husband took a week off to help me out (he had enough paid time off to do so). He cooked dinner, did the dishes, and cleaned up around the house. He put our 2 year old son to bed every night, comforting our son and sleeping with him the week our son had croup, changed his diapers (my husband had only changed about 10-20 out of all the diapers our son has had) and he would take our baby girl from me in the middle of the night for a couple hours so I could get some sleep. On one particular bad night, when our baby girl sounded so bad with her breathing and I was at my wit's end trying to decide if we should take her to the hospital or not, my husband was able to give her a blessing which calmed me enough and her enough to both get some sleep. He was a major comfort and support who remained calm through it all while I was crying every day in my spare moments. He just hugged me daily and told me to cry. He had never done that before.
I am grateful for my husband for the power of the priesthood he has to be able to bless our family. He isn't always the best at helping around the house on a daily basis, but he works hard for our family so that I can stay home to care for our children. He is awesome at vacuuming - he does almost 99% of the vacuuming in our home. He is a very talented artist - I wish he thought of himself as a one. My husband is good at not worrying and helping me not to worry. Through our trials of sicknesses the last couple months, I was reminded of my tremendous love for him and how great of a father he is. I always knew since I was 15 that he would make a great father when I saw him playing with a friend's flour baby for school. He is my best friend, the rock in my life. When I really need him, he'll be there. He just gets more amazing to me every single day, making even hotter every day =D.
My husband has been a great teacher to our children. He has taught my son so many things and he has a way of talking to him, explaining things so that our son can understand.
