I just wanted to let you know how much I love you.
Even though we're still quite young, we've been together a long time, and those days when I feel as though I couldn't love you more? The very next day - I do.
Watching you anticipate the arrival of Butterbean makes my heart melt into a goopy puddle at my feet. I never expected you to be quite so excited, and it makes me realize just how wonderful a father you are going to be.
I watch you go to work everyday with little twinges of pain, but then come home limping. You are constantly apologizing to me for that - why? It seems you feel guilty for being in pain, which I can never quite understand. Do I wish I could make you feel better? Definitely. Do I cry sometimes at the amount of pain you're in? You know it. But do I think you're one of the toughest people I know? Hell yes. You deal with that kind of pain better than I expect most people would, and you should never feel bad about how you're feeling.
And...you know, you deal with me so well when I (insert sarcasm here) have the occasional, rare mood swing. When most sane people would have left me for being such a loony toon by now, you continue to hang around, which I have to admit, surprises me sometimes because of how dramatic I can be.
All of these things just reinforce what I have known since we got together almost 14 years ago, that you are the one for me, that I can depend on you all my life, that you will be a wonderful father, and that there is no one better for me than you.
P.S. You have been snoring since your head hit the pillow - is your nasal strip already stuck somewhere unmentionable?
