I can remember when we started dating. It was 5 years ago. I remember how different he was from a lot of the guys that I was used to. He was a gentleman, kind, considerate, always made me feel good about myself. I remember flirting with him and thinking about what kind of a guy he would be as a husband; well, my husband. I always thought that we'd be good together. :)
I even remember, after watching him babysit a few kids, telling him that someday he'd be a great dad. I remember when we were engaged telling him the same thing. I remember when we first got pregnant and we were both feeling the insecurities of the journey ahead of us. I reassured him then too that he'd be a great daddy.
Now as I see him hold Roman while I take a shower, or when he plays his guitar and sings to Roman, or when there's a little hic-up and he looks at me with worry in his eyes and asks me if he's ok, and even when Roman has a little "toot" and Ty says, "that's my boy" I'm convinced that he's gonna be and IS a great daddy.
I find myself not just thanking God for Roman but for Tyler too. It's amazing how the level of love with a person changes as your life changes. I find myself more in love with Tyler because of Roman. I love seeing Tyler in Roman.
Today, Tyler went back to work and boy, do we miss him! We can't wait till 6 when daddy comes home!!
