Couples therapy after 3 months of dating
When Ellington was a newborn, he would get up with me and change diapers. It forced us to work through those things and learn how to talk to each other and still respect each other.The months leading up to Ellington’s birth was a good practice for that, because there’s so much to do.I didn’t want her to think that I was deciding to date her because she was pregnant, and that I was definitely going to marry her, or that I was definitely going to be her son’s father.
I had that kind of sitting in my brain for a few days and she wouldn’t tell me what was going on.He just jumped in with both feet and was like, ‘alright, let’s do this.’ He’s an incredible dad to Ellington.I knew he was a great person, but he’s been there for me, and picked up the slack I needed picked up.We automatically fell into those roles of helping each other.Brandon was really supportive throughout the whole birth. It was definitely hard, but it also made our relationship stronger.
