|30 years of greatness!|
So much about this pregnancy has been kismet for me....getting pregnant on Labor Day weekend and having the baby due around Memorial Day seemed poetic. On Valentine's Day we were exactly 100 days away from meeting our due date. I am a Gemini, my mom is a Gemini, my brother is a Gemini and baby boy is due to be a Gemini....And now Glenn's birthday being our 30th week officially of pregnancy seemed telling. Something about these dates, holidays, and numbers seems to be a "sign" for me (as nerdy as it may sound!)
What can I say about this man? 1. He loves fair food.
2. He loves grubbing on some wings with good pals
3. He's really good at mastering the grill
4. Every once in awhile I can get him to dress up for parties and he blows it out of the water
5. He's a hard worker who takes care of house and home (and doggies)
6. Did I mention he likes fair food?
7. He is ridiculously good with my friends' darling babies.
8. He takes us on fancy vacations
9. He cleans up well
10. He knows how to appreciate downtime, as well as fun in the sun
And he also happens to be ridiculously, ridiculously, attractive.
Every year, (and it's been 10 years) I am reminded just what a great man he is. I am so grateful to have such a supportive and loving husband. Having a number of smart, gorgeous, single friends who are currently in the thick of the dating scene has made me appreciate him that much more...it seems there are a lot of unreliable, irresponsible, immature and ignorant "men" out there. I can't believe how lucky I am to have landed such a catch!
He has been unrelenting in his support and excitement for this baby. Whether it be running out at night to re-up my V8 Fusion supply, completely rehabbing the baby's room, buying and reading his own "Daddies for Dummies book" and keeping me updated on the goings-ons inside my belly, or not looking at me like I'm crazy when I walk in the door, say no words and just sob out of hormonal crises...he's been there. He is fiercely protective of this family already, and I just know he will make a wonderfully caring, supportive, enthusiastic daddy!
Happy Birthday, "Sammy" Glenn Morris Lovelace, Jr! Cheers to 2012, your 30th year of greatness, and for the future to come!
