To My Husband

Today is a special day. It's a day filled with love and happiness and joy and all things wonderful.


It, like almost every other day (I say almost, but without validation as I cannot think of a day this is not true... but want to leave room for error), reminds me how much I love my husband and how truly lucky I feel to have him in my life.

It is a day that I am reminded that through the very worst days, he has stood by my side, held me close, and helped me weather the storm.

He is brilliant. He is obnoxious (true). He is hilarious. And he is all mine.

Today I am reminded that he should be celebrated. Not only today, but every day.

Also, today is his birthday.

Happy birthday, handsome.

I love you a bushel and a peck!

The One Who Wins Hers...

I am an over-thinker of epic proportions. Combine that lovely little trait with the fact that my baby is turning two in less than a month and you've got a big 'ole mess sitting in front of the computer.

Today I was skimming through my most recent phone pictures and I got to thinking... Kylie melts a lot of hearts. She's the only grand-child on both sides and to say she is loved would be an understatement.

Watching her with people like my brother and sister, and Tyler's sisters, and our parents, you can just feel the love radiating off of them. Even when she's her most "spirited" (aka... being a royal pain in the tush).

These people all have a lot of love for our sweet girl and she adores all of them right back. She asks for them and pretends to call them and offers them milk from her toy kitchen any time she sees them! The realization that I am not the only one that has this kind of eternal love for my baby is not something that caught me totally off guard. It was only when I let my over-thinking brain over-think that I began to weep a little.

Someday, my baby will find someone she trusts to love her as completely and wholly as we do. Someday, they will earn her heart just like my family has. I just hope that like what I've seen with our families, they will reciprocate, and cherish it, and never break it. I could go on and on about my hopes and dreams for my little girl. I think as a parent, that's only natural and expected. Just knowing how my heart feels when she's around... I hope the person she marries feels similar. The overwhelming sense of she's perfect.

All of these thoughts are brought up because...: Kylie is almost two. THIS has been the forbidden phrase in the Knott house lately. A simple, undeniable truth that I just haven't been able to accept. Because after two comes three. And then Kindergarten. And then graduation, and her wedding, and grand children... it's a slippery slope, people.

I need to develop a coping mechanism for this time warp thing that we're all in. Doesn't it feel like just YESTERDAY we were celebrating her FIRST birthday??
