happy birthday!

So Josh's birthday is in a couple days. And in light of this event, I'm going to share with you, the reasons we love you so very much....
  • You play with the girls every night. When I look out the window and see you teaching something new to those girls who adore you so much, it melts my heart.
  • The aforementioned "playtime" gives me some time to relax every night.
  • You do the dishes every week, because you know I hate the handwashing.
  • You compliment my cooking. And not just now that it's good, you did it when it was horrible...practically inedible. It tells me that you care about my feelings and I love it.
  • You actually WANT to go Christmas shopping for the kids every year and you actually get mad if I do it all myself.
  • (Jack) "You give me a bottle in the middle of the night when I'm hungry."
  • You dance and sing and act silly with us.
  • You and I love each other more and more every day, inspite of EVERYTHING that we've been through in the last 7 years.
  • You tell me I'm beautiful when I'm in sweatpants and a t-shirt and havent showered in two days. I know you don't mean it, but I love that you say it anyway.
  • (Maria) "you kick my ball way up in the sky and I catch it"
  • We talk about our future together and what it will be like when we have 10 grandkids and we're sitting on our front porch rockers watching them play in the yard. I love that you get the same pleasure out of a simple life that I do.
  • You know what I'm thinking before I say it.
  • (Sophia) "you play train track in the basement with me"
  • You cried when you heard "it won't be like this for long" for the first time. (and you will kill me for saying that!)
  • (Renee) "You're the cheese to my macaroni".
