So, to balance out the whining I just did (and help me remember why I love him), a list of why he's awesome.
He's not afraid to make a fool of himself to get a laugh. In fact, he takes great pride in the lengths that he will go to get a giggle.
Laughter really is how our marriage thrives.
Really. Look at him. He's tall, dark and handsome, looks just as good in a suit as he does in his PJs, and he isn't super vain or worried about trying to keep himself looking good.
He just does it naturally.
I just love the dimples. Vincent's got them, too!
Even horseback riding at my request. Through a jungle and into the ocean. The poor boy's butt hurt, but he did it and he enjoyed it.
All because I thought it'd be fun.
It might've taken him some getting used to, but once he caught on to the whole "dad" thing, he went to town.
He gets up early with Vince, plays dress up, takes him to the park to play basketball, teaches him the ins and outs of various sports, disciplines and soothes like a pro.
He works hard to provide and always, always, always plans for Vincent's future.
And yes, you really can learn a lot about a man by who he keeps company with.
That was one of the first traits I loved about John - his friends and his undying loyalty to them.
I'm so blessed to call these folks friends, too. Each one of them is amazing. <3
Even if he sometimes thinks I'm out of my Christian-lovin' mind. :)
