75 days. That's approximately how many days we have left before it's no longer just you & I. June 9 is our due date for our little one, although I've been told don't count on that date as the expiration date. And if he/she is anything like their father, late they will be.
I chose the above photo because it was right at that time 4 years ago, you (finally) asked me to be your wife. June 12, 2012 to be exact. While 4 years ago was our proposal story, our actual story began almost 9 years ago in 2007.
While looking back through the years, and the many photos we have taken, my heart is filtering through a crazy mix of emotions. While my excitement for us to become parents is almost too much at times, part of me is a little sad. It's always been you & I. We've worked hard to not only master our relationship and marriage, but we've become pretty damn good at being us. I'm sometimes afraid of what another person might do to us and who we are. I know that sounds so selfish, but it's real. I know the moment our baby enters our world, we will immediately forget what it was like before him/her. So I guess I'm just taking these next few weeks to just soak in the last of just us.
I was 19 when we met. You've been the one constant in this crazy world of mine and I hope that never goes away. You've been my partner throughout life and now you will become my partner throughout parenthood. To feel our baby wiggling inside of me all hours of the day (and night!) is the most surreal moment I think to date. To know we have created a life that will soon enter and consume our whole world, it's so amazing.
I can't find the words to express my emotions as we go through the next 10 weeks but to know you will be by my side as our little babe comes, is all I can ask for. I cannot wait to watch you become a father, as I know you will simply be the best. Here's to the next chapter, my love.
Love you madly.
