237 Things I love about Drew....

Yesterday I had a pretty stressful and long day at work. I had to stay late to try and finalize a project only to have it put on hold by legal.  By the time I got home I was exhausted and could barely keep my eyes open.  But when I entered the house I could smell something delicious cooking in the oven - Andrew had made dinner for me and he had a movie ready for us to cuddle on the couch and watch together. So that night I posted the following on Facebook:

After posting it my husband read it and said "I'd like to hear the other 236 things you love about me too."  So I told him "Easy - no problem! I'll list them all out in my next blog post."

Now that I am thinking about it - it seems like a pretty tall task for one blog post. So I decided to break it out in 50's.  So this post I will let him know the 50 things I love about. Here goes nothing!

1. I love your reaction when you found out we were having a baby.
2. I love that you spend more time on Totsy than I do buying clothes for Miss Kayleigh.
3. I love that even though you never will admit it - you have a soft spot for Parker, Bailey and Teddy which includes nightly kisses and treats.
4. I love that you always bring my vitamins downstairs during dinner.
5. I love that when I finish my water bottle all I have to say is "my water is gone" and you get up and get me another.
6. I love that when Parker stands at the door staring at us and I say "Parker has to poop" you'll get up at the next commercial and take him out.
7. I love that you enjoyed Harry Potter World just as much as I did and yelled "Expecto Patronum" on Forbidden Journey.
8. I love that when you dressed up as Voledmort for Halloween you went out of your way to make sure you had the "authentic" wand.
9. And I love that after Halloween was over you set Harry and Voldemort's wants up on the mantle facing each other because "they were battling."
10. I love that you spent hours and hours helping me put together my Harry Potter lego sets.
11. I love that you read to me and Kayleigh from the Wizard of Oz.
12. I love that you attend child birth classes with me and try to feed me "ice chips" - even when I get annoyed at you for touching my face.
13. I love that you can always make me laugh no matter how angry I try to be at you.
14. And I really love that I can never stay mad at you for more than 5 minutes. 
15. I love that you change your Facebook profile picture to a picture of me and you without me ever saying you should change it.
16. I love that when I'm upset about something you always listen and try to offer advice.
17. I love that you let me fight my own battles.
18. But when I need your help you always step in and defend me. 
19. I love that you are close with your parents and that we spend so much time with them willingly.
20. I love that you support me in everything thing I like to do, even if you find it silly.
21. I love that after I finish a scrapbook you humor me by letting me show you each page.
22. I love that you gave Kayleigh two drawers in your dresser to hold her ever growing collection of clothing.
23. I love when you put your hand on my belly and ask if she is kicking in hopes of feeling her.
24. I love that when Kayleigh does kick you keep your hand on my belly until she completely stops even when she goes on for 10-15 minutes.
25. I love that you think Maximus will be a good middle name for a baby boy - although I still think its ridiculous.
26. I love that you enjoy cuddling on the couch and watching movies - even when we've had a Netflix movie for over 2 months.
27. I love that when you take my car and notice its low on gas you ALWAYS fill it up.
28. I love that when I had a fender bender you didn't yell at me but simply asked if I was okay.
29. I love that you enjoy the beach and traveling and are always looking for fun things to do.
30. I love when you hold my hand in public.
31. I love that you always tell me you love me when I leave to go somewhere no matter who is around.
32. I love how excited you get to see baby Eli and it makes me see how great of a dad you are going to be.
33. I love that you tease me when I say something stupid.
34. I love when you text me to say "I bought you a surprise" - aka when you bought me my pink Cricut Expression.
35. I love that when I get really excited about something you always do too no matter how crazy or stupid you think it might be (can we say bidding on cartridges on Ebay??).
36. I really love that you always put your hand out so I can hold it in the car.
37. I love that when you thought I was in a bad mood you took me to buy a Christmas tree cause you knew it would cheer me up.
38. I love that you stopped watching football to set up my tree, make it straight, water it and help me put on the lights.
39. I love that even though your sporting teams never see to win you stay loyal year after year.
40. I love how excited you are to be a daddy - I couldn't have asked for a better to be the father of my children.
41. I love how smart you are which usually means I can never beat you in Monopoly or Words with Friends.
42. I love that even when I'm 7 months pregnant with a big ol' belly you always look when I'm changing clothes.
43. I love when I ask you to un-tie my shoe because I have issues reaching down that far you do it with no questions or complaints.
44. I love that you give so freely and selflessly.
45. I love how much you planned your proposal to me and really made it something special that I'll neve forget.
46. I love that while most men don't care about wedding planning, that when we planned ours you were 200% involved.
47. I love that you are already thinking about my birthing gift when Kayleigh is born.
48. I love when you scratch my back or head when we snuggle on the couch.
49. I love how attentive you are, especially now that I'm pregnant (like when you grabbed my suitcase at our hotel last weekend and carried it up the stairs for me).
50. I love that you and my brother get along - especially since you know how important my family is to me.

Well there's the first 50! 187 more to go. :-)
