baby necks

Have you ever had a dream that you're holding your sweet baby..
somehow forget to hold it's fragile neck/head....
and it's neck breaks off?
OR
that you are standing up, holding your baby...
and all of a sudden your arms go limp and you drop your baby and break it?
yeah,
me either.
But you know who has been having those recurrent dreams nightmares?
Hubs.
He has literally been waking up, in the middle of the night, in a pool of sweat.
And because he is so terrified,
he wakes me up.
The first time he woke me up,
he tapped my shoulder repeatitively saying
 Autumn, hey, Autumn....I need to talk to you about something serious.
Mind you, it was about 3am and hearing the word "serious" at that hour kind of makes you worry.
So I forced myself to wake up enough to be partially aware of what was going on,
and responded
What's wrong???
He proceeded to tell me about the dreams he had,
how worried he was,
and how  
but what if my dreams are trying to warn me...what if I'm really going to break our baby's neck off.
Remember...
it was 3am.
And I was only half alive...
so instead of reassurring my husband,
and telling him that he was not going to break our baby,
I laughed. Hard. So hard I had to get up and pee.
I had no idea he was so serious.
But let me tell you.
He was (and still is) serious.
He has never been around infants before...
and apparently he is terrified of breaking their necks off.
Being the encouraging wife that I am,
seeing my husband so worried about our fragile baby to be,
I proceeded to freak him out even more
by telling him about "soft spots" and umbilical cords.
(he had no idea about either one)
And I might have googled (terrible) pictures of infected umbilical cords to show him.
His face was priceless.
Yes, I'm horrible.
I blame it on my warped nurse's sense of humor.
But don't worry.
When he wakes me up now,
I automatically say
Baby, I promise you're not going to break our baby....
 he says 
promise?
I say
promise.
and he goes back to sleep.
(bless his 27 year old heart)
I have a feeling our house is going to be pretty entertaining in about 6 months.

I'm way more scared to have babies than Landon.
And now I'm probably going to have those dreams.
