Almost-almost Thirty

Yesterday, my amazing husband took one more step toward...I don't know, I guess "middle-aged" is appropriate. It's a little late to say "adulthood", don't you think?

He says he's felt really old since our third child was born, so age ain't nothin' but a number at this point (and I have to say - I wholeheartedly agree!)

Happy number 28 to the man who makes my world go round.

- he wanted a son so he could wrestle and roughhouse with him, but he has Eve in a half-Nelson on a daily basis too

- he never, ever makes me feel guilty for not having time or energy to make dinner/clean the house/whatever

- he will buy any number of unmentionable items for me, of his own free will and choice, without so much as a smirk or a raised eyebrow

- he takes care of himself

- he takes care of me

- he can put together the breast pump correctly with no supervision whatsoever

- he is a welcome grounding force for a little redheaded mama who gets herself all in a dither more often than entirely necessary

- he has this little wild streak that simply will not be squashed, causing him to love fast cars, loud music, and a good debate

- he channels that wild streak into appropriate outlets for a Responsible Father of Three

- he irons his own darn shirts

- he has more shoes than I do

He's just an all-around great guy, and I have been so blessed and lucky to grow up together with him over the last 11 years.

Here's to the next 28, honey.

Happy Birthday Dave! Hey Rachel, i love that photo of you bowling with your baby on your back. Way to Go!

Whatevs, you guys are not old! I am a young soontobe 25, but my husband is over the hill at soon to be 30, so no complainin' folks!! JK!

Yes, here's to 28 more indeed. Love you wife. :)

Awww, you two are adorable.. You are a lucky gal and he is a lucky guy.

Hey Rachel, I was just wondering...where do you get all of your "Baby slings" I am going to have my baby anytime now and I think with me also having a 19 month old...that would be a great thing to have, but I havent been able to find the kind I always see you have. Let me know if you can! Thanks!!!
