Today I'm linking with Andrea for a show and Tell Tuesday. Today's topic is how to win our hearts, specifically our partners.
Last month we had a some friends over and we were talking about our Love Language. Even the guys got in on this and we all took the test. Mr. got Physical Touch...and I got Acts of Service. Which is so true. Back when Mr. and I were first dating, things that made my heart go pitter patter was the way he was so attentive to everything I said. He remembered EVERYTHING I said...even if it was just an off hand comment, he would remember a month later. Even to this day he remembers everything we talk about. I love that, so when I'm talking about something, I don't have to give him the back story every time.

I love the way he makes me laugh. He can turn my sourest of moods and make me laugh so hard my cheeks hurt. He can read me like a book and knows exactly what needs to be said to make me feel better, or when not to say anything and just let me be. He just knows and I love him for that.

But mostly I love the way he treats our children, he will do ANYTHING for them. Even dress in this bear costume for two years to keep up with the family costume theme. He definitely took one for the team on this one.
I love how he loves children, when we walk into a room and there is a baby he runs off to the sink to wash his hands and is the first one holding them, and mostly doesn't ever give them up. Heck I would barely get to hold my own babies if it weren't for the fact that I needed to feed them, haha. Sort of joking...not really.
He is always the one that has somehow managed to gather all the kids and have it him against them all, and they are in fits of giggles at whatever he is doing. Every single time we are out with friends, they are all drawn to him and want him to play. Here the kids are playing tug-a-Daddy, they thought it was hilarious.
Okay, so this post just turned into a things I love about Mr., but in reality those are the things that make my heart go pitter patter and the reasons I love him more and more each day. And just for old time sake...
What make your heart go pitter patter?
