34 years around the sun and this year has brought some of our best adventures of all. I sit here writing this in a hospital bed, praying every day our baby and pregnancy holds on another day, another week, another month.. and there you have been, through every moment, every step of the way, your support unwavering. I can’t even begin to put into words how much that means to me, how much I appreciate you, how blessed I feel to have you as my partner in this crazy journey of life, and mostly how much I love you.
This year has been filled with excitement but also laced with heartache and pain. You have been my rock, my shoulder to lean on, my knight in shining armor, my Superman. Ben, I couldn’t have gotten through some of these days without you.
As I sit and think about our baby on the way, I’m so grateful that you will be their father. Over the years, my heart nearly bursts every time I’ve watched you interact and play with our nieces and nephews. And now it’s nearly our time to have a family of our own and this little baby is so lucky to have such a patient, loving, selfless and caring man to call “Dad.”
I know this year is going to be our biggest adventure yet, parenthood, and I can’t wait to figure it all out together. You are such a special person and the world is a better place with you in it. I love you more than anything and I promise to continue choosing you everyday for the rest of our lives.
Happy birthday, my love. Cheers to you and all your greatness.
