Words can't even describe the father and husband that Brandon is.
The neatest thing is, he keeps getting better and better as the days go by.
There are things I see in him daily that make me realized how blessed I am.
I have many extreme quirks about me and the kids and I are very blessed to have Brandon here to help balance them out!
He just makes our family complete.
Brandon was out of town on business for 6 weeks and those 6 weeks were SO HARD...
I never learned to appreciate him MORE.
I realized how much the kids and I NEEDED him.
Not for the regular "man" things or "honey-do's", like fixing stuff or taking out the trash, or taking the kids when I need a break (which are definitely a bonus)
But we missed him more for things like,
hugs and kisses before bed,
cuddling on the couch,
wrestling with the boys,
daddy outings,
and just his PRESENCE.
Yesterday Hewitt randomly said,
"mom our house just feels.........(pause).........BETTER with Dad here"
Brandon has been home for 3 weeks now and Hewitt STILL had that on his mind.

I am so thankful for him.
Words can't describe the feelings I have for Brandon.
I am so THANKFUL that he is who he is and that we are so blessed to have him apart of our little family.
but the fact that our relationship only continues to get better.
