Motherhood

A Little Love Note.

Have you told bedtime stories lately? Pregnancy has made me super sleepy, and I’ve been conking out really early. So a little tradition has started, where Alex will put me to bed. After I brush my teeth, he’ll say, “Ready for bed, baby?” and then come into the bedroom, lie down next to me (and my maternity pillow) and tell me funny stories about his childhood, early days in New York or old friends. I don’t know how he comes up with them all (every single night!), but it’s so cozy falling asleep listening to his deep voice and trying to stay awake to hear the ending. I love you, Alex.

  1. Tears in the eyes of women the most beautiful expression of love

  2. When a man does not understand the love of my eyes sweetheart live unhappy all his life

  3. I am thoroughly convinced in this said post. I am currently searching for ways in which I could enhance my knowledge in this said topic you have posted here. It does help me a lot knowing that you have shared this information here freely. I love the way the people here interact and shared their opinions too. I would love to track your future posts pertaining to the said topic we are able to read.

  4. how sweet is that for him to read you lull you to sleep. Hope I can one day find someone as sweet as him ;D

  5. Once upon a time, a man loved his pregnant wife so much that every night he would tuck her into bed and share a lovely story about his life with her and their soon to be born child . . .

  6. That is so beyond sweet!Do you read to the baby yet? I started reading to my boys when I was pregnant with each of them every single night though hubby would tease me about it.It really relaxed me.I would rock in the rocking chair,rubbing my big(I was HUGE..LOL) belly and read one of the many books that already lined their nursery shelfs.I honestly think that is why they have such a love for reading now.They get SO excited when they’re told we are going to the library like most kids do when they are told they are going to the mall..lol!They are 8 and 10 years old and I have only missed one night of reading to them since they have been born.That is because I was in the hospital with my chrons..lol!It is a wonderful bonding time for everyone even though they are old enough to read themselves.We cuddle up with warm drinks and drift off into a land of make believe right before bed. These are the memories they will take with them into adulthood and pass on to their children.:0)Sounds like your hubby will be a great story teller too*Big smile*

  7. That sounds so amazing. I hope my man is just as sweet.
