Tonight we celebrated three years of mawwiage.
It may not be a big deal to some, but it certainly is to me.
This year was certainly different than the previous two. Mostly because we brought a little humanoid into the world. Half Ryan, half me. OK, let's be honest. Camden is more like 90% Ryan and 10% me. Whatever. I birthed the kid so that's got to count for something.
This past year we've learned a lot about communication, trying to find a balance, our roles as a mama and a papa, and how to nurture our relationship when having little one-on-one time.
Some days, I want to punch Ryan in the face (and yes, I wrote that in our anniversary card), but most days - I love him to bits.
He makes me laugh a lot and keeps me grounded when I get a little frazzled. I love him for that. He also reminds me that he cannot read my mind and that I need to speak up. I also love him for that, too.
It's hard to believe that at this time last year - we were one day away from finding out that Camden was a boy. And now, we have a beautiful, happy, and wildly mobile almost-8 month old.
I can't wait to see what our fourth year brings. Hopefully more sleep, more memories, and even more love.
