A to Z Challenge: J is for J

J is the letter for the 10th day of the April A to Z challenge and it was a simple one for me. J is for J, my wonderful husband.

I was blessed enough to get to spend 15 weeks at home with W after he was born due to the timing of my leave and school breaks. My mother arranged to take 2 weeks of her vacation time to watch W as well, but that left 9 weeks before school would be out for the summer. After coming up with a variety of options, one option rose to the top and J embraced the opportunity to take 9 weeks of leave to stay at home with W. This plan means that W will not have to be in any type of daycare/sitter situation until the 2011-2012 school year begins in August.

I have seen J grow as a husband and a father in the past 18 weeks since W was born. Sure, we've had some rough days as we both work to figure out how our family with us as a mother and father but still a husband and wife but overall, I have seen him grow and change in so many wonderful ways. He has also put up with all sorts of ups and downs from me and for that I am thankful. I cannot wait to see what the coming months and years bring as I watch my husband become more and more of a father as W grows. I look forward to watching them as father and son playing sports or playing guitar. Not every father and son get the opportunity to bond the way W and J are right now. I feel that we are so blessed as a family. I am lucky to have the support of J and my mother on this adventure of being a parent!
