Comments on: Growing A Family: Emily Henderson http://www.designmom.com/2014/02/growing-a-family-emily-henderson/ The Intersection of Design & Motherhood Sun, 01 Jun 2014 19:09:37 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 By: Mina @ Mini Piccolini http://www.designmom.com/2014/02/growing-a-family-emily-henderson/comment-page-1/#comment-860527 Mina @ Mini Piccolini Wed, 05 Mar 2014 18:42:50 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=45299#comment-860527 I love Emily’s thoughts on co-parenting. I had the same strategy when we had our first child. We even had more than 3 weeks on our own with our baby before our families came to stay, just so that we could find our parenting groove together before our moms came in with their advice etc. I gave my husband so many props for being a great dad! Now we have two boys (and a little girl on the way) and my husband is every bit as much a parent as I am, if not more, and our boys are very much Daddy’s boys, which is sometimes hard for me to take – but I’m so glad to have a real partner in parenting!

I have been following along with Emily’s pregnancy and with Baby Charlie every step of the way. To the point that my husband thinks I’m a total weirdo when I’m showing him photos on instagram every day of the latest cool think Emily or Charlie is doing! I too had a nine week pregnancy loss earlier this year, but am pregnant again and 26 weeks along. It is so nice to hear from someone so open about this and about the challenge and fear of trying again, as well as having to keep it such a secret. I love her advice about parenting with your husband! It is spot on and something I need to put into practice more as we’re both learning about what to expect with our baby boy arrives. Thanks Emily!

I love those words of advice for Dads—applicable for older siblings too I think!

I’m not a mom or a wife yet, but I am a full time nanny and sometimes I worry that I’ll be too overbearing/bossy with my future husband when it comes to parenting our children, simply because I’ve spent so much time around kids myself. This advice was so spot on, thanks for sharing!

Thank you, Emily, for sharing your story, and those pregnant photos are beautiful :)

Great advice on co-parenting. I wish that I was a bit more flexible in that department… but no use to dwell on it now. I blame it on hormones!

And I love you! So having these two blogs intersect is kind of blowing my mind right now in the best way! You are right about the advice about dads being the best advice ever. I just read this to my husband and we both agreed that we fell into the trap of me doing everything and him feeling like he didn’t even know what was going on. I’m going to share this advice with any soon-to-be-parents I know because it is key! Like others, I also love how enthusiastic about motherhood Emily is. It’s nice to see.

After having three of my own, I kind of forgot what it’s like to be a mother the first time around. Emily reminds me of that magic :).

Letting my husband take some of my load was the best thing I ever ever did as a Mom.

What I really love about this post is Emily’s comments on delivery. Your job is having a healthy baby, regardless of how that happens. Amen, sister! (Oh, and be warned, it’s going to happen differently every time…)

Emily articulated what I have had a hard time making sense of – how challenging it is to fully embrace being pregnant after a loss, how it’s so abstract until the baby is THERE in your arms. And how important it is to parent WITH your partner! I’m guilty of doing too much reading and thinking that makes me a more powerful parent.
I loved reading this.

I love Emily’s attitude about figuring things out together as you go–it made me think of Andrew’s first bath at home: I was too scared to do it, so I let my husband do the honors while I took the video. :)

This post- as well as her posts on motherhood on her own blog- are insightful and original and true. Thanks for sharing, Emily and Gabrielle!

Such a nice story, and she seems so down to earth!

I don’t think I am a control freak with my kids with my husband, but with in-laws I think I am. Less so with my second but when my first was a baby I was a total list-maker, clock watcher, anal hawk-eyed mother. I didn’t care how my husband did things. I know alot of moms can’t stand how their husbands change diapers or bath them, or cut their food but I really don’t care. But when my in-laws would watch her when she was a baby I left like 2 page notes. Lame, I know. Now that I have two I barely remember to bring diapers with me anywhere I go.
