I am grateful !!

I am grateful for … my adoring hubby !!

I would not be the person I am today without my sexy hubby by my side. I met Rob when I was still very young and impressionable. What he has taught me over the 5+ years that we have been together, I will never take for granted.

Rob is a very opinionated person, sometimes a trait that I become frustrated with but when I look back on a situation and think about what he was trying to say, his opinions are always trying to help someone.

He self-doubts which always makes me upset because he is an extremely talented, hard-working and giving person.

He has renovated our entire home on his own (with some help from my Dad), he refuses to pay someone an extreme amount of money to get the job done, because he wants it right, he would rather spend the money on ‘us’ and at the end of it, he gets to look back and admire his work.

He always puts my feelings first, often getting angry if he thinks I am taking on too much or getting treated wrongly. He is often asking me to take it easy and take time to myself, this was even before I fell pregnant.

I wouldn’t laugh as much as I do without him in my life. He makes me laugh every day and seems to always turn a bad situation into a good one.

He gets me !

Rob comes from a smaller family compared to mine and took a while to adjust to my large, loud and sometimes over-bearing family. He has grown to love each and every one of them and would do anything for them. This was made evident when my parents went through the toughest time of their lives a couple of years ago. Rob did everything in his power to help them through it.

When I began my maternity leave three and a half weeks ago, I wasn’t entirely sure how we would cope, as Rob works from home. I have loved every minute of it. I have been able to witness first-hand how dedicated he is to his work. We chat and we work as a team more than ever.

Ever since I fell pregnant, he has been an adoring man. Even more so since I finished work and have been at home with him, he tells me every day how gorgeous I am pregnant, how lucky he is to have me as his wife and how excited he is for our little one to enter the world.

Words that I definitely will not get sick of hearing.

We enjoyed a beautiful morning today, we had breakfast at our favourite local café then went shopping. Once we got home, I began to clean the house, he randomly came up to me and planted two big kisses on my cheek and said ‘thank you’. I have never wanted him to acknowledge the work that I do around the home, it is something I have always done and will continue to, as I love making our home look beautiful for us.

He is such a ‘big kid’ at heart. Loves his nephews and godson to the moon and back and will always take time to play lego or sit in a ball pit with them.

Of course he has his flaws … leaving dirty clothes on the floor in the bedroom instead of putting them in the laundry basket, splashing water all over the bathroom mirror when he brushes his teeth and always reminding me ‘alarm’ before I unlock the front door (I have lived here for as long as you have my dear, I have turned the alarm off as I do each time we come home). But, I wouldn’t have my life any other way. My life would be incomplete without him by my side.

I love Rob for everything that he is and I just know that he is going to be an amazing father to our little bean.
