Little girls typically dream about growing up, marrying their prince charming, starting a family and living happily ever after. I was no different. However, little girls usually don’t think about or can’t envision the journey along the way to happily ever after. Last night, while trying to fall asleep, I watched you sleep. I started thinking of our relationship over the past 9 years…all the struggles, the ups and downs, the fun times and happy times we’ve shared. Those times are what got us to where we are today. Our relationship as changed and grown so much over the years and it grows stronger each day because of the moments we share.
Last night as I watched you sleep I also started thinking of all the little things I love about you. The way you get this little grin on your face when our fibbing about something and the way you can fall asleep in 2 seconds flat (love and hate that). I love the way you sometimes use your thumb to gently rub your arm when you’re sleeping. Your laugh. You have this great laugh that makes me smile and laugh even when I’m upstairs and I have no idea what you’re laughing about. When I watch funny shows with you, you have this way of making them funnier. And when you watch sports I can always tell when something good/bad happens because you yell or shout at the TV and you can be so animated. I love the why you calm me down when I’m stressed out over something stupid and how you make me feel like I can do anything. I love how you can make me smile for no reason at all. And I love they way you have taken such good care of me over the past four months. I am so happy that you are so happy about our baby. I love that you want to be so involved with everything from finding a daycare and pediatrician to registering for baby items and decorating the room. I am so lucky to have a husband like you and our baby is lucky that it’s going to have a dad like you. I can’t wait to see you holding our little one this summer.
I love you!
