Big Day Today!!!

We have several important things going on today!

This sweet girl is 9 months - she has officially been on the outside longer than she was on the inside.  Where has the time gone? 

Her 9 month post will be up later today!

This wonderful guy and I are celebrating 4 years of marriage!  Again, where has the time gone?  We have been together for almost 9 years - that is CRAZY!!
I love this picture of Alex form Hawaii!  I have tons of wedding pictures on my 3 year anniversary post!

I'm not going to lie, a baby is a huge stress on a marriage - sleepless nights, total exhaustion, a completely new normal - it is HARD to stay positive with each other and remember that we are a couple first and that we need to nurture each other. 

I haven't done the best job at that over the past 9 months.  However, I am so thankful that I married a wonderful, loving man that puts up with my type of crazy - especially the type of crazy I was right after Kate was born.

Thank you Alex for loving me, being the best Daddy Kate could ask for, and taking this marriage and parenting adventure with me!  Kate and I are bless to have you in our lives!!

And, today is my sweet Momma's birthday!  I am so thankful for my mom - she has always been an amazing mom that went out of her way to put her kids first!  She would do anything for me, my sister, and brother.  I hope she has a wonderful day today amidst the major changes that have occurred in her life this year.  Kate and I cannot wait to celebrate with you next week Momma!!

Isn't that the truth that a baby stresses the marriage?! Been there, especially with two kids in two years and being a newlywed! Thank the Lord for wonderful hubbys that put up with CRAZY hormones and :::sometimes::: crazy kids :)

Happy Nine, Sweet Baby Kate! What a gorgeous picture! Oh, those pouty lips... So sweet! Happy Anniversary, you guys! We're coming up on 4 years in October- time flies when you're having fun! I guess we're no longer.. newlyweds, huh? That's actually one title I'm excited to lose! I know, so strange. I'm also excited to turn thirty in 2 years. What is wrong with me? Old soul, perhaps! And a happy birthday to your beautiful Mama!
