Yesterday was Jorge's birthday! He doesn't like it when I tell people how old he is, so I'll say he was turning 21 again. But it was such a fun day! He was able to take the day off and we went and visited model homes. Its what he wanted to do! And then while Emmett and I went home for a nap, he went and got a massage. He earned it! He is such an amazing husband and father. Okay, so I'm going to embarrass him and brag a little.
So my hubs is the best ever. Seriously. I love that after 9 years he prioritizes my needs and health over whatever else he'd rather be doing. I have been sick and exhausted for the last few months, he has really stepped up. He has always been the kind to just jump in and do what needed to be done most of the time, but there are certain things I prefer to do myself. Like loading dishes into the dishwasher or folding laundry. Its not that he does anything wrong. He just doesn't do it very often because I am a stay at home mom. I typically just take care of those things as I go about my day.
With me being sick this pregnancy (and mostly lying around as has been mentioned many times on this blog of late) he has just jumped in head first. He'll call on the way home to see if it was an OK day and I was able to pull myself together and get something in the crockpot or should he cook? Or should he pick up take out because would cooking smells bother me today? What about homework? What do the kids still need to get done? What should he prioritize? Does laundry need done or is that random smell in the house (and I'm the only one who can smell it) still there and he should be on a search for that tonight?
So when I saw this amazing camera on sale that he had his eye on for like the past 3 years, I knew I had to get it for him. I still had some money saved up from the contract job I'd done over the winter (long story for another time) and so I just bought it.
He loved it!!! I'm so glad we were able to celebrate the birth of this awesome man in our lives.
