Yesterday, August 28, 2015, we celebrated two years of marriage.
I can’t believe how quickly the past two years have gone by and simultaneously, I feel like we have been going through life hand in hand together forever. Time is weird like that. I feel incredibly fortunate for the years we have spent together already and the promise of all the years to come. I’m thankful for everything we have learned about marriage, communication, and parenting and everything the future will teach us. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better companion, best friend, and teammate for life. Thank you for completing me, Zack, and for showing me that soulmates and fate is real.
We spent the evening going back to the same spot where we said ‘I do’. It was incredibly special to tell Del about the significance of the park and reminisce on our wedding day. We drank our favorite bottle of wine, ate a bunch of wonderful food, walked around, talked, blew bubbles for Del, and relaxed. It was the perfect way to celebrate our love.
I’m going to let you in on a secret.
Motherhood is not always rainbows and butterflies – sometimes it’s teething. And it sucks, every second of it. When my head kind of hurts from Del screaming, and my eyes are feeling heavy because it’s the 12th time he woke me up in one night, and my boobs really want a break, the one thing that really puts my attitude into perspective is that it could be worse. I could be the one teething. So I hold him closer, rock him longer, and beg the universe to let me take his pain away. The happy moments still are more than outnumbering the painful ones, but when someone you love so much is hurting so bad, it’s impossible not to make the biggest deal possible out of it.
He doesn’t let me get a very good look into his mouth, but from what I can tell there are at least 5 teeth on their way in – nothing through the gums yet and I swear somedays the teeth are less through the gums than the day before. A quick google search made me feel like I wasn’t completely loosing my mind and it is definitely possible. I want to add that it also is definitely not fair.
I am positive the only real remedy to this is time, but he sure does look cute in his amber necklace.
