{Husband's Letters}

Dear Emma, you don't drink coffee often but when you do I can almost guarantee I'll find it in the microwave the next day. I've grown to love this about you. Dear NPR, you recently taught me that hard-boiled eggs can be peeled easier if I add a teaspoon of baking soda to my water. I also learned about this special trick that lets me shoot an egg out of it's shell like a rocket, but I'm still perfecting that one. Dear Harvest House, in the past month you have taught me about frozen water pipes, insulation for a drafty basement, and creaky floor boards with sneaky nails that like to snag our wool socks. Thanks for growing me as a home owner. Dear Sweet Wife of Mine, you are so cutie when I see you walking around the house in your jammers at 11pm trying to beat everyone in our daily step competition on Argus.You've reminded me never to underestimate a determined pregnant woman.

Happy Monday, brave ones! Do you know someone who is pregnant? Have you told them lately how beautiful they are? I know Em never gets tired of hearing me tell her.

My mom does the same thing with her coffee cup! My whole life.
One time, back when my brother and I came home from college, he opened up the microwave at like 2pm in the afternoon and we both just laughed. Nothing had changed. It was sweet

I don't know anyone pregnant, but when I was preggers 6+ months ago, my husband called me his "baby factory"...it melted my heart. He loves his babies!

And re coffee; it's what the best mamas do :) mainly, cause we are busy ladies.
