Eight and a half years and two kids later, my list looks quite different in ways I never even imagined.
He plays with a pink dollhouse without complaint.
Jeremy lets the girls help with every single task, even when it would be ten times quicker to distract them and finish quickly. One of A & M's favorite activities is 'helping' their daddy make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Just this weekend we noticed they were licking their play knife after making a sandwich in their little kitchen...just the way he lets them lick the jelly off when they make sandwiches.
He willingly spends his weekday off at home with the girls, so my mom can have a break. Even after working all night, he gets up early to give the girls breakfast and get them dressed on school days, just to spend a little extra time with them.
He tries hard to match their clothes...even if he forgets to match the socks sometimes.
When Jeremy can sense I am nearing the end of my (admittedly short) rope, he encourages me to escape to the bedroom for some rest or get out for awhile.
He is currently learning to do A & M's hair in pigtails...now that's love!
He is my partner through everything we face in life. We are young; we have a long way to go and I know it won't always be easy. It's a comfort to know that there is someone supporting me and our family 110%. We survived the days of newborn twins, so we ought to be able to do just about anything together!
Happy Valentine's Day, Jeremy! Addison, Mackenzie, and I are so blessed to have you in our lives. We love you!
