First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes...

Remember the days when you looked at your knight in shining armor with all of the love lust your heart could stand?  Oh how you dreamed of his kiss, or the way he would hold your hand, what your future would look like with him?  Yes men, we do this.  We even have the first house decorated in our minds and the birth order of our children all lined up when you are just starting to think we seem pretty great.  We have already married you in our minds.  Once we convince wait around on you to pop the question we don't really need that year of planning 'cause, well, we did that part like 6 months ago.  But, we go along and then you.are.ours.
So after we fix enhance your place that we now share together, we start with our not so subtle hints for our love of children and talk of which room in the house will be the most precious baby room.  You begin to realize the trying for baby part sounds great and you are hooked on the idea too and then comes...baby.
Yes, we will admit that we definitely left out the part that YOU would be the one dreaming of our sweet kisses and holding our hands once our sweet angel came.  You probably have now even begun to wonder what your future is going to look like.  Well, we can assure you that it is filled with lots of sweet, tender moments with the most precious creation God has ever made and he made it just for you.
Or sometimes he gives you 3 sweet blessings at once.  He knows you don't need that much sleep, and you have the love and joy to go around.

We promise it gets easier and you will get us back (as wife) shortly.  But, first we must do all that we can to love these little blessings because before long they will be all grown up and you will have them at your side forever more.  

As we watch you with your new "sidekick", we will, again, be dreaming about the sweet kisses that brought us together,  holding your hand through it all, and what our future holds...with our precious gifts.  We will love with all of our heart what you have given us and be so thankful we did it together.  We will be in awe of this miracle and how it has grown.

  One day we will turn around and they will be all grown up and we will no longer wonder about kisses or holding hands because we can do that all the time.  We will share sweet memories of no sleep, crying nights, baseball home runs, teen years, first cars, dates, and college.  We will wonder how we did it and will know it was because we remembered to love each other every.step.of.the.way.

**As many of you know I recently traveled to North Carolina to visit and help out with my stepbrother's newest addition of triplet boys.  It was my honor to be there and see such sweet miracles.  Their two year old, Chase, is the most adorable of all and I got to capture some of his fun times.  Click here for those shots with the fancy camera ;)
