WC #17

17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

I know this picture is already on this blog,
but it's the most recent of us!

What I love MOST about him?

There is definitely more than one thing.
As I sit and type this,
it is 1:20 in the morning.
He has to be up in an hour and a half for work.
He's been working this schedule since about a week before Kali was born.
and not tomorrow [hallelujiah],
but on mondays and wednesdays,
he has school from 6-10.
He usually doesn't get off work until about 5
(TONS of overtime for him lately!)
I love that he is such a hard worker.
I haven't heard him complain about this schedule ONCE.
I'm sitting here,
unable to sleep
(while my baby is SOUND asleep in my lap. yeah. thank you mind for not letting me sleep while my baby is!)

and my husband is asleep in our bed.
sometimes I just like to cuddle with him while he's sleeping.
I just feel this overwhelming feeling of love for him all of the time lately.

He is SUCH an incredible husband and father.
I couldn't ask for anything better.
he is definitely my other half.

I know we're married now and everything,
but I still just feel so guilty for what I put him through before his mission
and even for a while after his mission.
I was a dang brat!
I love how hot he is :)

I'm sick right now.
I have a dumb chest cold.
I woke up today with hardly a voice and I've had a cough all week.
about 20 minutes after Tyson got home from work,
I all of he sudden got this TERRIBLE headache.
I'm not kidding. I couldn't even open my eyes.
I couldn't even work up enough energy to cry.
He waited on me like it was his only job.
He got me a bottle of water and some ibuprofen and told me to take a nap.
I laid down and when he saw that I was all situated,
he told me he was going to run to the grocery store
(because I haven't been grocery shopping since before Kali was born.
I'm serious, I'm such a slacker. I really need to get the ball rolling again, but I rationalize SOO much cause all I want to do is cuddle this baby!)

He said that he needed shampoo
(yeah he's been out for about a week and a half and hasn't said anything because he's felt guilty. MAN I suck at being a wife right now.)
and he asked if we needed anything else.

I told him we needed a few other things and asked if he could get stuff for himself for lunch.
(I usually pack a lunch for him when he goes to work...but haven't been doing that either so he's been eating out pretty much everyday...which we shoudn't be doing cause we are supposed to be saving up as much as we can. He hasn't had a choice though since I haven't been grocery shopping!)

I then asked him if he could fill up my water mug before he left since he was going to be going upstairs, and my parents have THE BEST ice in their fridge. ha I know. I'm crappy.

He said yes and then got ready to go.

Then he left and as he was pulling out of the neighborhood,
he realized he forgot to fill up my mug so he TURNED AROUND and came home just to do it.

I love him so much.

When I woke up from my nap he had done a good amount of grocery shopping too.
So now we have food again.

I love how, even when he's working his BUTT off all day,
he comes home from work and still helps me.

I feel so pathetic when he does that.
like I did today.
But I wasn't feeling well.
I hope my cold leaves soon.

I love how my husband is constantly thinking of other people.
He rarely is thinking about himself.
It's always what my brothers need,
or what his brother needs.

When he came home from work today,
I had been sitting out in my car waiting for him cause I had just gotten home from the Dr.

I was just sitting there okay?
He gets home and sees my parents garbage sitting outside,
so he rolls it in to the back and then makes sure that everything looks good.

I had just been SITTING THERE.
I could have done it..but I didn't think about it because I am not as selfless as my husband.
I love how,
even though he's been working his butt off all day,
he comes home with a smile on his face and in the best mood.
That definitely wouldn't be me if I was working like him!

I love how he is with Kalista.
He is an INCREDIBLE father already and is SOO paranoid about her and every little noise she makes.

Whenever he comes home from work and holds her while she's awake,
she'll just stare at him while he talks to her.

She would do it for hours if she could.
She LOVES her daddy.
I just love my husband.
I feel like I'm just rambling so I'm going to stop here...
but I want you to know that i'm just getting started here.
I could go on forever about the things that I love about him.

But I'm typing and even though Tyson is a pretty heavy sleeper,
I'm worried my typing is going to eventually wake him up so I am going to stop now.

I'm SOOO Blessed.
