Happy Halloween everyone! Apologies for the minor hiatus but as most of you know from my social media posts the last couple of weeks, my wonderful dad passed away last week. It's been a very difficult few months seeing him go through so much pain since he was diagnosed with cancer back in July. It just spread too quickly and took his life far too soon. We are slowly healing our broken hearts though and know that he is watching out for us from Heaven. Thank you so much for all your love and support during this sad and difficult time. It means the world to us to hear your kind words, prayers, and love.
I finally was able to sit down and fix up my blog schedule a bit and I'm hoping to start posting on the regular again now that life seems to have calmed down a bit. I have a bit to catch up on but we'll get there! Let's start out fresh though with a very special post today. Today, Kai is 40 weeks old. He spent exactly 40 weeks inside me, and now he has been living on the outside for 40 weeks. From tomorrow on, he will have been outside of me longer than he was inside me and for some reason that feels very significant to me. I truly loved being pregnant with this little miracle and miss that connection with him every single day. He was so safe inside of me and I wish I could still have him all to myself to protect him all the time. However, being able to hold him in my arms, kiss him, and watch him grow every single day is just as incredible. Motherhood is the most complicated love I will ever experience and it is the biggest blessing of my life. I wanted to take a little stroll down memory lane of these last 80 weeks of motherhood.
Even through the most difficult times, Kai has been my little ray of sunshine for the last 80 weeks. The amount of love we share is truly incredible and I am so honored to be his mama. I love you with every once of my being, Kai Bear!
Woo I've been so behind with Tiny Dapper Fox lately, friends, I'm so sorry! I've been completely MIA and I don't really have any one major excuse except maybe I've just really been trying to focus on myself and my family? I don't know, this little space just got pushed off to the side a bit, but I'm back now and ready for a happy fall season with you all! A couple of weeks ago we celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary and I meant to get this post up on our anniversary, Sept. 26th, but it just didn't happen. So here we are today!
Happy 3 magical years to us. I wouldn't want to do this life with anyone but you, Caleb. Our relationship looks a little bit different these days but I think it's so beautiful how much it's grown. We depend on each other more than ever these days and we've become even more of a team than we were before...if that's even possible. I truly love you more than I ever have before. Watching you become a father this past year has been incredible. Every time I watch you with Kai, my heart literally flutters. I still get so excited and get butterflies in my stomach when we come home from work and I get to see you. It's been 3 years but I still feel like I'm living in a fairy tale. You are my Prince Charming and I will love you forever and 3 days.
Cheers to year 3 and many many more!
