A superlative husband
I just have to say, I have an amazing husband.
I already knew he was great, otherwise, why would I have married him?
But it is now that I realize just how blessed I am to have him.
He is a fantastic father - through the dirty diapers, screaming fits, and bouncing to sleep. He is so attentive and organized, scheduling Elijah's injections and appointments. He also surprised me by decorating the nursery while I was in America for Poppy's funeral. I came back to find a cute room, complete with little outfits in the drawers and on hangers in the closet!
However, he has done far more than that for me and Elijah. Gary takes such good care of us... of me. Since Elijah was born, Gary cooks all our meals, goes grocery shopping, cleans the apartment, walks the dog, goes to work, AND does 9 hours of additional classes every week. He is a superstar. Absolutely amazing.
I do what I can, honest. But being a first time mom, it's pretty overwhelming. I don't know how moms with more children do it. I am sure I will eventually be able to juggle housework and child care, but at this moment in time, I am so reliant on my dear husband.
I am blessed beyond measure. I have a beautiful son, and a superlative husband (and a sweet dog). We live in a comfortably spacious apartment in a lovely part of town. We have lush hills behind our building, and a beach 15 minutes away. The school where we work (well, just Gary now) is 5 minutes away and has been wonderful to us. We are able to take extended vacations to see our families all over the world, and have them visit us.
Anyway, I am grateful for so much in my life, but today, I want to tell the world about my husband.
I love you.
