We survived our 1st year!
It has been one year since our son was born. High five! We somehow survived our first year of parenting.
This might be a good time to mention how much I appreciated having someone to laugh with during the whole, weird process of growing a person.
I still beam with pride at the way that you were able to stand by my side to bring our son into this world.Thank goodness I had someone who could love me...with messy hair no makeup and wreaking of breast milk.....For better or worse, right?
I still like you... We’ve spent much of the last year in a sleepless haze. That eyes burning, can’t remember if I’m wearing underwear.... And, because we can’t blame the baby, we’ve often blamed each other. We’ve stood toe to toe too many times to argue about stupid stuff, as though they were a matter of life or death.
I’ve hurt your feelings. You’ve hurt mine. Not intentionally. We’ve had to say “I’m sorry” as frequently as “I love you,” and we’ve had to learn that sometimes, it is better if we forget who is to blame, skip the apologies, and move on with the recognition that we were both wrong.
But I Still like you.... This year has been momentous. We stood together as a new life entered our family. And as treasured lives were laid to rest. We cheered each other on through promotions and encouraged each other professionally even when things were rough. We’ve made hard decisions about things. Though it has been easy to view each other as the enemy when things get hard, we always seem to find a way back to leaning on each other for support. And through it all, we kept our little boy alive. We nurtured him into a smart, inquisitive, determined, ornery little man.... Which is why I still like you.
I like the way that our son’s smile matches yours.
I like that we can still talk. And we can still laugh.
I like that sometimes, we can step away from being parents together, and we can just be husband and wife. With our son safely watched by our loved ones.We can devour hot coffee or wine. We can promise not to talk about the baby, but we both know that we'll end up doing just that. #besthubby #bestdaddy #bestfriend #happelymarried
