everything is about to change


finally. 
everything is about to change.

although i’ve cherished our time…with just us two, i'm ready. i'm almost in my third trimester and it still feels like a dream sometimes. this bouncing baby boy will be on his way soon. he is going to turn our worlds upside down. and i can’t wait.

i’m excited for all of the firsts that we are going to experience together. 
his first smile. 
his first word. 
his first step. 
all precious moments that we will share.


i know parenting this little man won't be easy and it won’t always be fun. but it will be worth it. everything we’ve endured over the last five years was all for this. all the shots. the debt. the tears. miles traveled. hope followed by despair. it was all for what’s just around the bend. and i’m so grateful that i get to experience this little miracle with you.


you are going to be an amazing father. 
you’ll teach him how to ride a bike. 
how to be kind and courteous to others. 
to be a gentleman with the ladies. 
i know you two are going to be the best of friends.

so on this day that we celebrate 6 years as a married couple…
we also have something else so amazing to celebrate. our son. he will be in our arms in 100 days (if he is punctual). and he will reside in our hearts for the rest of our lives.


thank you for loving me. for choosing to fight for us when things got hard. and for walking by my side throughout our difficult quest to grow our family. it wasn’t an easy road that we took to get to this place. but i’m so blessed that you continued to trudge forward with me after each failure. because this is what we were fighting for….our little baby sunshine. and he's almost with us.

i love you, A….with all my heart. 
happy 6th anniversary!

This is the sweetest post ever. You both look great. You are so so right, things are about to massively change. We are 24 days into it and man is it a culture shock and hard. BUT Satisfied doesn't even begin to describe it. <3 100 days is nothing. Enjoy these last couple months with "mommy and daddy" time, it will fly by!

Happy Anniversary!!! (You were married just two days after my hubby and I. We celebrated 6 years of wedded bliss on the 6th). And you look absolutely adorable with that sweet baby bump. Yea for third trimester. You're almost there and you are right...everything (EVERYTHING) you've endured will have been worth it when Baby Sunshine is placed in your arms!
