a love letter to my husband

Monday, May 6, 2013




Matt,
On the first day of my last trimester I had lots of blog posts in mind – nursery updates, a letter to our baby girl and babymoon pictures.  But I felt that all those could wait because today all I wanted to do was say thank you.  Thank you for being my rock these past 6 months (and long before).  Thank you for picking up the slack when it comes to laundry and dishes around the house when I’m too tired or emotional to deal with it.  Thank you for making my lunch after I go to bed so I can have a worry-free morning the next day.  Thank you for walking our puppy when we get home late and we both know there’s no way I’m gonna do it.  Thank you for being so enthusiastic about all of my dinners even when they don’t turn out exactly like they were supposed to.  Thank you for telling me I’m beautiful, especially when I feel like a roly-poly.  Thank you for jumping at the chance to touch my belly when our baby girl starts wiggling.  Thank you for always encouraging me to relax.  That is so hard for me and I’m so thankful that you know me well-enough to know that look in my eyes.  That look that comes when I’m running through my to-do lists in my head and when slowly anxiety and stress starts to creep into my brain.  It’s like you know what’s happening and you know exactly when to grab me and hold me.  I feel like a crazy person sometimes yes, but it’s a fact that without you I would have been officially diagnosed loony by now.  I love you so much Matt.  Georgia is one lucky lady to have a daddy like you. 
Thank you for loving us fiercely and unconditionally.

Love, your baby mama

My mom has always told me that you can never praise and love on your husband enough. They might seem big and tough but they love a little shout out from their woman. So excited for you guys! Whoo hoo!
