Because...

I love him.





And yesterday was his birthday.
I feel really bad I didn't get to do this yesterday, but between the ZERO time and the panic attack/meltdown I had at the end of the night...I didn't get around to it.

This is my husband, Cody John Walk.

Isn't he so dang cute?

It was his happy birthday yesterday. He turned 25! He's a quarter of a century old..Holy cow! I feel like we've known each other forever, even though it's only been 3 years.

Here are some reasons why I love Cody sooo so so so so much. Some of them are from a journal I kept while we were engaged and each night I wrote one reason why I loved him. It was so fun thinking about it and I told him the reasons I had written down later and I think he was happy to hear it. I want to keep doing it, but I don't write in my journal very often anymore.

*He always plays games with me--the silly ones like rhinoceros and spiderman
*The way he laughs when he thinks something I do or say is really funny (it's so cute)
*How safe he makes me feel
*When he does things with me that he doesn't want to do..and doesn't complain
*I love love love love LOVE his smile
*I love that he loves me and wants me to be happy
*He wears the pants in our relationship
*He wants to have as many babies as I do!
*He talks to me about everything
*He always compliments me; he wants me to succeed
*He worries about me
*He's so handy! He can fix anything and doesn't care how dirty he'll get!
*He's always teaching me something new
*He's so dang fun! He plays around with me and lets me braid his hair! :)
*He never, ever yells...except when we're fake fighting
*He can grow a really fun mustache
*He never makes me feel stupid
*He's quite the photographer


*He likes how girly I am...Even though I don't like to admit I'm girly
*He makes the BEST pizza

*I love how he drives
*He has a really strong testimony and loved his mission (he talked about it all the time when we first started dating...That's when I knew I was really attracted to him!)
*He smells so dang good!
*He's always, always there for me. Through the good things, through the horrible things, he's there
*He's starting to love the Harry Potter books!!!
*He loves being daring and adventurous; he's always up for anything

*He doesn't settle for anything less than the best
*He's a really, really hard worker and is super dedicated
*He always listens to me complain and never complains back
*He helps me be a better person

He's my favorite. I'm sorry if this is too mushy-love stuff for everyone...but I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband!!! I love you!

That's a nice birthday present for him - and I think he's pretty awesome too because he's good at guitar hero and knows how to spin out on the ice and because he loves you! So good job picking such a good brother-in-law for me! :) Love you guys! Amy

(this is one of my favorite blogs but it will make you cry so maybe don't read the blog, but just this post)

After reading all of that, I love Cody...You think that I got a chance? and I think that I made up the rhinocerous game? I just think that I should get some credit. Also, the post was nice and all, but I'm not sure if it makes up for presents???
--NOAH

I loved your blog about Cody! He is so cool adn he even listened to my silly song - and acted like he liked it!! :) I think I would Dad would have freaked if his mother-in-law would have called him on his birthday and sang him a song - but I don't feel like a mother-in-law, I feel like I'm friends to all my kids and their spouses. At least that's how I (I don't know how to bold the "I" so that you know that I am emphasizing the "I" part...) anyway, that's how I feel - that each of my kids' spouses are a big part of our family too!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CODY! again!

Grandma Nell said...

Oh, yeah - I want to know about the panic attack too - was it because of the spider? And whatever you do - DON'T go to that webpage that April tells you about - that picture of the spider is so so SO SO awful - you don't want to see it. As soon as I saw it - I clicked the screen closed! UGH! No one should take pictures of spiders, ever!

Fig said...

So sweet. Love it.

Patti said...

It's good that LynnEl clicked the screen closed so fast on Sheye's blog. If she'd read any of the rest of the blog she'd have had a melt-down day.
