Happy Birthday, Andy!

Today is my husband's 35th birthday!  Today's post is all about him!

This guy - he makes me laugh.  Every single day, he makes me laugh!  No matter how awful my day has been he will always make me feel better because of that ability to tickle a giggle out of me.  This quality about Andy is what drew me to him all those years ago in Biology class and it's what keeps me insanely in love with him today - 19 years later!

Having a newborn and toddler is hard HARD work and Andy recognizes that.  He seems to know just when I need a boost of confidence and has texted me a couple of times telling me how proud he is of me and that he thinks I'm doing a great job with Tate and Tenley.  He has no idea how much that meant to me both times, and it came just when I needed to hear it.

Andy is hands down the BEST dad for our kids.  He loves to play ball with the boys (and they love that he loves it!).  He wrestles in the living room with Tate and lets him jump off (and on) his back when he's trying to relax on the floor.  He snuggles Tenley when she's fussy and can always get her to fall asleep - she's totally smitten with her daddy.  He's always down to change diapers. For about 2 days he kept getting stuck with the poopy diapers so he started saying if your name starts with a T and you have a stinky diaper "I'm your man".  :)  He reads books to Brennan for his homework nightly without any complaint.  He looks over Aiden's homework and reads him his spelling words.

I never have as much fun with anyone else as I do with Andy.  He makes the worst situation bearable just by being there holding my hand.

He always does all the icky, scary, not fun stuff that I don't want to do.  Like cleaning something gross.  Or killing a spider.  Or running into the gas stations for drinks so my lazy butt can stay in the car. :)  He spoils me rotten, and I know it!  Don't worry, I take none of this for granted and tell him often how much I appreciate it all.

I wish there were words to express how much I love this guy!  He's a stud and I want to spend all of my time with him.  More than once a week one of us says "lets run away together".  If we could we totally would! :)

Happy birthday, Andy!  I hope you know how much you mean to all of us.

All my love,
