husband love

Even though it's not the best quality, this is one of my favorite pictures of my very two favorite people!!

So I've been mentioning how crazy life is these days, but I've never really explained why. Of course things got 100 times crazier once Mia became mobile :) But that's the fun kind of crazy, the kind of crazy I spent years day dreaming about! It's been hard to get life in order while trying to unpack from moving (and keep track of mobile Mia), work, trying to have a tiny social life, etc. We are in the process of selling one (but the plan is to sell both) vehicles, and fix Eric's jeep. That jeep is turning out to be quite the process that no one expected it to be. We have spent every free weekend at my in laws trying to fix part after part that goes out on it. Eric is Mr. Fix It and would never take his vehicle to the shop. It really blows my mind how much knowledge Eric has and how he is able to fix pretty much anything! It's also frustrating that he won't just take it to a shop when we have limited time, ha! 
But the main thing that makes life crazy is Eric's job. He had a huge promotion awhile ago and he is now the electrical superintendent at work! This has been Eric's goal since he started doing electrical maintenance work but we thought it would be at least 10 years before he achieved it. Once again, Eric has so much knowledge, he learns fast and he's good at what he does (and he's only 27)! I am so proud of him but I get extremely frustrated because he is under appreciated at work. (Maybe I shouldn't post that online, but maybe if someone doesn't like it, they should change their ways!) There is a ton of stress that comes along with the position and I'm afraid I haven't made it any easier than his job. But I truly am working on that :) Anyway, Eric puts in 50-60 hour weeks but he has put in over 100 hours in a week before! And then he comes home and gives Mia a bath every single night, and helps with her any other way he can. He also makes time to hangout with me, talk about my day, etc. Eric really does it all! I am so lucky and so blessed that he's mine forever!
Mia has become the star of this blog and the star of our life :) Which is to be expected since she's such an amazing baby! I feel like it's really easy for me to dismiss the pressure and stresses Eric has in his life because my focus is on our daughter. I don't let him know how much I appreciate everything he does for us and how hard he works each day. So this post is a huge shout out to my main man.... I am in love with him more than ever before! I could not be more grateful for such a hard working, smart, talented and caring husband. He can be the father of my babies anytime ;) I love you, Eric!

This is a really sweet post and I think that if someone has a problem with Eric not being recognized and your mentioning it, then they SHOULD change their ways. Nothing you said was out of line or ugly! I love the picture of Daddy and Mia! Eric sounds like a great guy and he's got my vote!!

Such a sweet post. It's easy to overlook the everyday things that the ones closet to us do on a daily basis. But, it's awesome that you do recognize how amazing your husband is in his career and his home life. :) You can tell you are one proud wife!

kudos to eric...he sounds amazing in every aspect. my work is associated with construction, so i can understand how demanding his work can be....and the fact that he doesn't come home and use that as an excuse to get out of doing things shows just what a good man he is.

Life with Baby Sophia

You really aren't joking when you say that he works really hard! So glad that he wants to be so involved with his family though -- it would be so easy for him to beg off and take a backseat role.

You're right you are so blessed! Beautiful photo!!

Congrats on his promotion, but I hope they give him the appreciation he deserves! I don't know how you juggle it all, but you are an inspiration! I need to remind myself that if you can handle all that, then I should be better at managing mine ;)
