a mushy one

My dear blogging friend, Marli, emailed me a few weeks ago and told me about a link up she was wanting to start and I got so excited for her when I saw what it was! She just launched the link up a few days ago (I'm a slacker on getting this post put together!) and will hold it twice a month... it's a letters to my husband link up! For me, this is a really great opportunity to highlight Eric and the rock he is for our family, because we all know how I pretty much only talk about Mia on the blog ;) So here's a quick letter to my favorite husband- all eye rolls and gagging are welcome with this mushy love stuff ;)


Dear Eric,

In case I haven't told you lately how much I love you, I want you to know that you are the Red to my Sox, the Ken to my Barbie, the brownie to my batter (blizzard that is, since we know how ridiculous my craving is for that these days), the air to my lungs and the beat of my heart. The end.

Just kidding.

In all seriousness (except we all know I'm dead serious about everything I just said ;)) you truly are the best husband! Eternity just isn't long enough to spend with you (except on those days, yeah, you know what kinda days I'm talking about. Not that you ever experience them with me ;) ha ha!) I don't say it enough but I am so thankful for how hard you work for our family... and then you come home and still find the time and energy to help me out around the house. How did I get so lucky?!
Watching you be a dad makes me weak in the knees all over again for you! There is no doubt in my mind that Mia knows how much she is loved and adored by her daddy! From day one you dove into fatherhood with zero fear or hesitation... changing a million diapers, taking charge of bath time, singing at the top of your lungs because she loves it, teaching Mia how to play tea party, dressing up like princesses, dancing and the list goes on. How did we get so lucky?!
I know that baby boy will be just as loved when he arrives! You two will have your own special bond and I know you'll love doing all the "boy" things with him... then again, you really try not to be gender specific and if he wants to play tea party with you and Mia, you'll teach him that it's okay to play with sister's stuff as well! Oh the messes of dolls and cars that our home will be littered with, and you'll love every second of it! How did we get so lucky?!
Thank you for loving me the best way you know how, and trying to find new ways to show me your love when I say I need more. I should be the one giving you more on the daily! I truly am the luckiest! I hope you know just how much I love you!

Now, take me on a date gosh dang it, and all will be perfect in our world ;) Don't forget a stop at DQ for my blizzard!

XOXO, your wifey

Does anyone know where we can find a babysitter?! ha ha!
