On September 22nd, Ken and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. This year we decided to stay home to celebrate. The last two years we've been out of town in Tahoe or Santa Cruz on our anniversary. We had such a great night together. We made dinner together; steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and dutch crunch bread. It was great to have a night where we actually had a chance to talk while making dinner and just relax together.
After dinner, I decided to make Ken some chocolate chip cookies and as I was getting ready to put the first batch in Ken asked me if I wanted to take a bath. I have been so achy lately that a bath in our brand new bathtub sounded perfect. He went upstairs, filled the bathtub in the baby's room, added my favorite Sweet Pea scent from Bath & Body Works, put a Parenting magazine on the counter, brought my towel in from our bathroom and even left a small towel to put behind my head.
After my bath, he helped me get out of the tub, which was kind of a huge feat considering how big my belly is getting and how deep the tub is. We decided to watch the Wizard from the 1980's with Fred Savage.
I have such an amazing husband! Everyday I'm reminded of just how lucky I am to have found such a caring, sensitive, and supportive husband. One of the most amazing things about him is that he hears things that I myself at the time don't even think are that relevant.
For our anniversary he gave me a sign for the wall that says "All Because Two People Fell In Love". I have been talking about wanting this sign for our entire marriage. I've always wanted to make a wall in our house just for family pictures. He also gave me a picture frame that says LOVE down the side and said he wanted to put it up in the baby's room. I'm really not surprised that he remembered that I wanted this sign from so far back. He hates to give me gifts that I expect and completely ignored getting me what I asked for, a massage. I love that he really thinks about what he giving me.
Ken, you are the love of my life and not a day goes by that I don't thank God for putting you in my life. I'm so excited to see you as a daddy and to see where we are this time next year with a 7 month old.
I love you! Your Wife
