My Darin is the coolest man alive...

Yep. And I have a list to prove why.

*Him with kids? Oh my gosh… he is the bestest uncle ever. Here we are with our niece, nephews and sister in law’s.



Sunday we went over to Greg and Natalie’s and he and Jett played for over an hour by themselves in the yard. Darin taught Jett how to blow the seeds of dandelions. Jett then sucked “in” and accidentally inhaled the dandelion seeds in his mouth. Darin then taught him how to spit.


Oh yes, paybacks are in store with Greg and Natalie when we have Baby H because we taught their son how to spread dandelions and spit. Perfect uncle behavior. =)

*We had two showers this past weekend and he came to both of them.. SO eager about everything baby. It’s just so fun to watch. The other day he said, “Yep, I’d be okay with the baby coming today.” It’s so fun to share this amazing experience with him.

* He is such a good sport. On Sunday they made him wear an empathy belt at one of our showers. He strapped that baby on there and just grinned…



And then he felt his new boobs.

I was like, “DARIN! We are in the house of the Lord! Quit feeling yourself!”

Then he claimed the harness was falling off. Sure you were.

* The boy is so super talented at so many things. Sports, preaching, remodeling our house… and more. Last night we were snuggling before bed and watching the Bachelor… his total favorite show. (HA! He’s a saint for letting me watch… especially when arena football was on.) He was laying there with his arms us, hands behind his head. All the sudden, WHOOSH... he slapped his arm down and yells,

“Darce! I just caught a fly in my armpit!”

I don’t think I had laughed that hard in a long time. He slowly lifted his arm up and yeah, there was in fact a fly caught in his armpit hairs. Still alive and kicking. I was laughing so hard and could hardly see through my laughing tears as I helped him get a Kleenex and dig the fly out of his armpit hair. Now that is talent.

Even though some of the reasons my Darin is the coolest man alive are pretty fun and light, I can’t tell you how excited I am to become a parent with him. He is completely amazing.. love you, sweetie!
