31 on the 31st

Today my love turns 31.  Isn't he ancient?  The other day I was talking to his mom about how old Rob was getting, and she reminded me that Rob would have been even older had he come when they originally hoped for him.  My in laws had three children, and then even though they wanted more, they were unable to have any...for SEVEN years.  Then as a surprise, and blessing, Rob joined their family.  I jokingly said, "Well, that's because he was hanging out in heaven with me!" The more I thought about it, the more I realized that if Rob had come seven years earlier, the two of us probably wouldn't have ended up together - and the thought of that makes me unbelievably sad.  Rob and I have been through a lot together, and spend most of our time together juggling children, but he is without a doubt the most perfect man on the planet for me.  (Don't even get me started on what a great dad he is!) Even though his parents had to wait so long for him to come to earth, I'm so grateful that they never gave up on expanding their family.  Rob, I couldn't love and appreciate you more.  You truly are my best friend, and I love being married to you.  Happy Birthday, handsome! XOXO

Poor fossil Rob. It seems like I was just freaking out about being 30 now you guys are doing it! That's OK...you still have the 50's to freak about, and I'll already be over it by then.
