It's no mystery that kids change everything about your life and your relationships. And I mean EVERYTHING! One thing I never anticipated was that it would make me love my husband even more. I honestly didn't think that was possible but the miracle that is our little boy, made my average-sized heart double, if not triple, in size. My heart made room for his tiny little body with curly blonde hair and blue eyes and simultaneously it grew with love for the man that sweep me off my feet several years prior.
Before, during and after the birth of our son I was the first-hand witness to my husband's resolve and determination, his unfailing love and uncompromising strength. It was the single most stressful time of our collective lives and he was my rock. He was our family's rock. Since that time he has continued to demonstrate all the characteristics that made me fall in love with him but now I get to see him interact with our son and it makes my heart swell. Our little guy adores his Daddy and he thinks my husband hangs the moon for him each night.
When I got married I assumed my husband would be a good dad but I didn't have much proof. It's not like we were surrounded by kids but it wasn't until we started introducing our own children into the mix that I realized that he wasn't just a good dad - he's a great dad. He's a better role model for our son than I could have ever wished. He comes in from a long day of work and never hesitates to scoop up our little guy and take him outside to mow or sit with him to build a lego train. He always puts our family first. I know that I could never have made it through the challenges of motherhood without him by my side, holding my hand through each unpredictable step,
I love him with all my heart - to the moon and back.
